NTT IndyCar Series team owner Dale Coyne says he is happy to see Santino Ferrucci return to his team for the 2020 season.
It was confirmed on Thursday that Santino Ferrucci will drive the No.18 Team SealMaster Honda for Dale Coyne with Vasser Sullivan Racing and speaking about the news Dale Coyne said:
We’re very happy to have Santino back with us for the 2020 season. He had a very good rookie season and he was absolutely stellar on the ovals. We look forward to him building on that this year. I think he surprised a lot of people in 2019 and he has the potential to do even better in his sophomore year as he now moves to the No. 18 car.”
Team co owner James ‘Sulli’ Sullivan commented saying:
What a big moment for DCVS and the program as we begin our next chapter. This new crop of young fast IndyCar racers is no joke, and we’re energized to have Ferrucci leading our charge in the SealMaster machine. I expect you’ll see some big moments from us in 2020.
Santino Ferrucci commented on the news saying:
I’m extremely honored that Dale, Jimmy, and Sulli have put their faith in me to carry this program forward. The SealMaster car has had a lot of success in the past two seasons. I’m eager to move into the No.18 car and get spring training started. I also want to say a big thank you to SealMaster for believing in me, and I’m beyond excited to represent them on the biggest stage.
SealMaster Director of Communications Debbie Petok said:
We’re excited to have this impressive, new talent behind the wheel of the SealMaster Indy car. Santino had a great 2019 IndyCar series debut and we look forward to the energy and enthusiasm he’ll bring to the 2020 season.”
