Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Thursday that they will enter Spencer Pigot for both the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 24 in partnership with new NTT IndyCar Series team Citrone/Buhl Autosport.
Speaking about the announcement Pigot said:
I’m very excited to join Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with Citrone/Buhl Autosport for this year’s GMR Grand Prix and Indianapolis 500. “I ran my first INDYCAR SERIES race and Indy 500 with RLL in 2016 so it will be nice to return to a team with some familiar faces. I can’t thank everyone at RLL and Citrone/Buhl Autosport enough for their efforts in putting this deal together and the opportunity to compete in another Indy 500. I can’t wait for May!”
Citrone Buhl Autosport was set up by former NTT IndyCar Series driver Robbie Buhl and Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner Robert Citrone and his son Nick.
