Former NTT IndyCar Series driver Robbie Buhl announced last week that in partnership with his brother Tom and father and son Robert and Nick Citrone to form the Citrone/Buhl Autosport NTT IndyCar Series team.
The new outfit will make their series debut during the month of May at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course and the two weeks later at the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday May 24.
The team hope to add races to their schedule later in the in season.
Robbie Buhl competed in the NTT IndyCar Series from 1996 to 2004 winning one race at Walt Disney World Raceway in the year 2000 while driving for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing.
Nick Citrone is a minority shareholder in the Pittsburgh Steelers NFL team and it is great to see another new team come into the series with personnel from different backgrounds.
The team will announce further plans in the coming weeks such as their engine supply and who will drive for the team.
It is certainly an exciting time to be involved in the NTT IndyCar Series.
