Entering 2010, IZOD IndyCar Series veteran Davey Hamilton was slated to run 3 races with the then newly merged de Ferran Dragon Racing. The 48-year-old Hamilton would kick off the season at Indianapolis before returning to Texas and rounding out 2010 at either Chicagoland or Homestead-Miami.
Unfortunately, due to his crashed car at Indianapolis, but even more so due to teammate Raphael Matos' destroyed chassis, Davey's season was put on hold. After missing Texas, Hamilton will return at Chicagoland where he'll close out his season, “It was always in the cards that Davey would drive again for us this season,” de Ferran said. “Obviously, he was scheduled to run in Texas, but the accidents in Indy ruined that plan, now we will have him in Chicago. He really helped us a lot in Indy and I am sure the same will be true in Chicago. I wish we could run two cars full-time as this is very important to a team's competitiveness with the current testing restrictions.”
Although the plans didn't unfold quite as they would have hoped for this season, both de Ferran Dragon Racing and Davey Hamilton are expected to return in 2011 with multiple races.
