Andretti Autosport announced it has signed 15-year-old Sage Karam to drive for the team in the 2010 USF2000 National Championship.
Karam, a native of Nazareth, Pa., is an avid online racer with 76 wins in more than 350 races in iRacing’s Skip Barber Series, Star Mazda and Legends competition. Karam has also spent the last few years competing in both the Skip Barber National championship and the World Karting Association (WKA). He was the only American driver to compete in both a national karting championship and an open-wheel professional series full time in 2009.
Karam began competing in karts at the age of five. He has since established himself as a 35-time WKA and Indy Racing League (IRL) Stars of Karting national champion. Karam also stands as the only driver ever to win a WKA Triple Crown Championship and titles in the IRL Stars of Karting (East, West and National) all in the same year (2007). In 2008, Karam – then 13 – established himself as the youngest winner in the history of the Skip Barber Shootout.
