Dale Coyne with Vasser Sullivan Racing announced on Wednesday that Ed Jones will make his full-time return to the NTT IndyCar Series in 2021 driving the No.18 Team SealMaster Honda.

Speaking following the announcement, team co owner Dale Coyne said:

We’re very happy to have Ed Jones back with us and back in the NTT IndyCar Series this season. We were sad to see him leave after his first time with us but we’ve kept in touch since. Ed had a great rookie season at DCR in 2017, which included our best finish of third at the Indianapolis 500. Now with DCVS, we hope to continue where we left off with him and look forward to a strong season.”

James Sulli Sullivan team co owner commented saying:

We’re full steam ahead having Ed Jones join us, and taking over the driver responsibilities for the No. 18 Team SealMaster machine. Ed has had some big moments in IndyCar, and we expect you’ll see some big moments with us together in 2021.”

Ed Jones who made his IndyCar Series debut with the team in 2017 before moving to Chip Ganassi Racing is excited to be back saying:

I’m really excited to join the Coyne Vasser Sullivan team for the 2021 NTT IndyCar season. I started my IndyCar career with Dale, Jimmy and Sulli have had much success as owners together, and the combination of Coyne, Vasser Sullivan is a proven team over the last 3 seasons. I’m pumped for the opportunity to drive the #18 SealMaster machine and represent the SealMaster franchisees across the country, this really is the perfect opportunity.”

Jason Hedlesky, from SealMaster said:

We’ve enjoyed a successful partnership with the team. It’s been great for our brand. Renewing our commitment affords us the opportunity to keep SealMaster in the national spotlight of IndyCar racing, and on its international stage, as well
