Junqueira Signs With FAZZT

Brazilian native Bruno Junqueira has signed on to pilot a 2nd FAZZT Race Team Dallara in this years Indianapolis 500, #33. Bruno will run alongside the teams full-time driver Alex Tagliani, who replaced Junqueira in his Conquest ride last May after Alex failed to qualify for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

"I am thrilled with the opportunity to compete for the FAZZT Race Team at the Indianapolis 500. The team will give me the resources and support to compete in a car that has the capabilities of winning at the Indianapolis 500. To win at Indianapolis has always been a dream of mine. I've had some very competitive opportunities at Indianapolis and in each year I've led laps and scored two top-five finishes at the speedway. I hope that in 2010 I am able to complete my dream of a win at Indianapolis since I have been so close in the past." - Bruno Junqueira

"Because we have enough sponsorship to run a second car at Indianapolis, we felt it important to give that chance to Bruno. Last year with Bruno as the second driver in the team I was at, he let his spot in the field go after I had a mishap in qualifying. And it turned out, I had a pretty good race at the Indy 500 so it is nice way to say thank you to Bruno for what he did for me last year." - Alex Tagliani
