Curt Cavin reports that long time Indycar driver Scott Sharp is set to return to pilot the #16 Panther Racing Dallara in the 93rd Indianapolis 500 mile sweepstakes.
“I can’t express how excited I am to be back at the Indianapolis 500, especially with the chance to team with Tequila Patrón and Panther Racing. I want to thank Tequila Patrón for all of their support and I am excited to showcase the world’s No. 1 premium Tequila in the world’s biggest race. John Barnes and the entire Panther team are relentless in pushing their cars to the top and that has shown in their results. We will be a great combination.” -Scott Sharp
“We’ve been having conversations about having Scott drive for us for the last four years. As a team, we’re excited to get this program finalized early so we can be prepared to make a strong run at the Indianapolis 500 this year with the support of Scott and Patrón. We certainly feel like Scott is a very capable and experienced driver, and he and Dan Wheldon will really be a force during the month.” -John Barnes
