Carlin Racing have confirmed that RC Enerson will drive the No.31 Lucas Oil School Of Racing for this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid Ohio sportscar course.
Speaking about the news, team owner Trevor Carlin said:
We’re excited to have RC Enerson and the Lucas Oil School of Racing on-board this weekend in the No. 31 entry at Mid-Ohio. RC really impressed us at Spring Training at COTA at the beginning of the season and we were very hopeful that something could come together at some point that would put him back in the car. “RC has spent a lot of time with our team this season and he has quite a bit of experience at Mid-Ohio, including an INDYCAR start a few years back, so he should be able to jump right back in and make the transition a smooth one.”
Enerson who has competed in the NTT IndyCar Series before with Dale Coyne Racing and drove for Carlin during the NTR IndyCar Series Spring Training camp at the Circuit Of The Americas in February commented saying:
“It’s really great to be back driving with Carlin after completing Spring Training earlier this season with the team. We’ve been working really hard to get something together to get me back in the seat at some point this season and I couldn’t be happier that it’s all come together for Mid-Ohio. Mid-Ohio has always been one of my favorite tracks on the schedule. I’ve just always loved the elevation changes and all of the high-speed flowing corners. “I’m also excited to be able to carry the Lucas Oil School of Racing logo on the No. 31 this weekend. They are the official school of the Road to Indy Series and it’s been so rewarding to share my love of racing and instruct some of the future stars of INDYCAR over the years. I know we have some work to do this weekend, but I’m confident that with both my experience and the team’s at Mid-Ohio we can put together a solid result.”
