The Force Indy Team announced on Tuesday that they have signed Miles Rowe as their first driver under the new diversity programme. Rowe will compete in the USF2000 series in the 2021 season as part of the ladder programme to the NTT IndyCar Series.
Rowe will make his USF2000 presented by Cooper Tires at Barber Motorsport and speaking about the news, Force Indy Team Principal Rod Reid commented saying:
We vetted many deserving young men and women and chose Myles based on his ability and performance, inside and outside of the cockpit. “He understands Force Indy’s mission of building a diverse team of talented individuals. He’s a great fit for the team.
Speaking about his new opportunity Rowe commented saying:
“It’s a blessing for sure. I didn’t expect to get started in open-wheel in this way. It’s definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I’m very grateful for it. “I’ve been working hard for this moment; with all of the practice I’ve put in since I was 12 years old. So, when the opportunity came forth it was a relief honestly.”
