Ryan Hunter-Reay Confirmed At Vision

Cavin reports that Ryan has yet to sign a contract but the deal is done.

Some other interesting news is that Hunter-Reay will be piloting the #21 Dallara and not Quatro's old #2, or the #37 that IZOD has been using in all it's ads.

"It all happened yesterday and we're still getting the contract squared away but the team is scrambling to put my car together and thankfully I'm going to be racing Indycars this year. I really can't tell you how thankful I am that Tony stepped in because it was getting late and I know Terry Angstadt has been working real hard to help me and I appreciate his efforts. The entire IRL marketing and commercial department has been working relentlessly on several B to B deals as well as sponsorships and I can't thank them enough. I'm just very grateful right now. This will be a huge opportunity for me to race for Tony George at Vision." -Ryan Hunter-Reay

"I was talking with Tony (George) yesterday about those two teams (HVM,Coyne) when he said, 'I think we (Vision Racing) should do it" -Terry Angstadt


Excited that Hunter-Reay will be in the league for this year, and it is presumably IZOD on the car. However, I wish he had a better teammate. I can't imagine that Carpenter is going to be much assistance with road/street setup. However, its one more confirmed car. Get the hauler loaded, and let's go racing! One week!
