Once again, we have a few roster updates to announce...
Canadian driver Jesse Mason is scheduled to return to the Indy Lights series this year, driving a third car for Guthrie-Meyer Racing. The 24-year-old driver has some European racing experience, running in the British F3 and German F3 ranks in 2003. His last year of racing full-time was 2004 when he made the move to the Infiniti Pro Series (Indy Lights), running 10 races for Brian Stewart. He managed to find the top-ten in all but one start, finishing 6th in the overall championship.
As expected, Freddy Zebede and Barrett Mertins have signed with Jensen Motorsport. Zebede was the most improved driver (based on lap times) at the Carolina Motorsports Park test last week. Mertins is also showing signs of improvement as he adapts to the car.
Daniel Vela has signed with Eurointernational and will partner Michael Lewis, Wilson Phillippe and Giancarlo Vilarinho under the team tent. Vela has looked pretty solid in pre-season testing. He was also a Formula BMW Americas scholarship winner.
