The 2008 Atlantic Championship winning team, Brooks Associates Racing, has announced their intent to field a Firestone Indy Lights car in 2010. Although a driver has not been chosen, the team recently purchased a FIL Dallara from Guthrie Meyer Racing.
BAR has fielded entries for:
- Markus Niemela ('08 Atlantic Champ)
- Al Unser III
- Andreas Werth
- Memo Rojas
"After winning the 2008 Atlantic Championship, we have taken the last year to review all of our opportunities in North American racing series. We wanted to examine the various series to see where we could best continue our history of preparing young drivers for successful futures in professional motorsports. The Firestone Indy Lights series is such a clear steppingstone to America's premier open wheel series (The IZOD IndyCar Series), that it meets our objectives and our drivers' objectives as well." -John Brooks, Brooks Associates Racing Owner.
We are delighted to welcome another quality team to our grid for the 2010 championship. Brooks Associates Racing has shown the ability to be a championship contending operation in other forms of motorsport and we fully expect them to continue that success in the Firestone Indy Lights." -Roger Bailey, Executive Director of Firestone Indy Lights
