HVM Racing confirmed today that Nelson Philippe will pilot a Dallara with sponsorship that will be announced in the coming days.
Nelson Philippe, brother of Firestone Indy Lights driver Richard Philippe, was rumored to be buying out Roth's equipment but talks broke off over the summer. He joins E.J. Viso who will be driving the unlucky green pain scheme with the even more unlucky #13 in the Greatest Spectacle.
- “We are excited to have Nelson driving again for HVM Racing. He won for us in 2006, which was quite an accomplishment for such a young driver and had his best ever season. Although coming back will be to a new Series, a new track, with huge competition and in the biggest event of the year, we will work together to achieve a good result. We always like challenges.” -Keith Wiggins
