AJ Foyt Racing announced on Tuesday that Canadian Dalton Kellett who made his NTT IndyCar Series debut with the team in 2020 with a partial programme will remain with the team in 2021 on a full-time basis.
Kellett who will partner Sebastian Bourdais commented saying:
“I couldn’t be more excited to be back with AJ Foyt Racing for the 2021 season. “Securing a full-time ride is a big boost heading into my sophomore year in INDYCAR. Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19 in 2020, A.J., Larry, and the Foyt team continued to develop their car and elevate the program, while standing by their employees and partners. That’s the kind of team I’m proud to both race for and be a part of. Being paired with Sebastian will be a great opportunity to continue to learn from one of the most experienced veterans in the field. I can’t wait to get back on the track for off-season testing and back behind the wheel in 2021.”
Team President Larry Foyt commented saying:
We are very happy to have Dalton back with the team and more importantly that he will be driving full-time. “With the limited track time in 2020, it was a tough year to be a rookie, but he jumped in with a great attitude and adjusted to the Indy car quite well. He was getting quicker with each event and had a great test at Barber [Motorsports Park] recently. I think Dalton will truly benefit from having four-time champion Sebastien Bourdais there full-time. I’m really looking forward to seeing how our team progresses in 2021.”
