Battistini In At Kentucky

Rookie IZOD IndyCar Series driver and veteran Firestone Indy Lights pilot Dillon Battistini will run the #34 Conquest Racing entry at Kentucky.

"I'm relishing the opportunity to make an impression on the Indycar stage at Kentucky Speedway this weekend, and can't express enough gratitude to my various backers and also to Eric Bachelart at Conquest Racing for doing everything possible to turn my long-held dream of racing an Indycar into a reality," Battistini said.

Following the completion of his successful oval test at Kentucky last week, the four-time Indy Lights race winner will make his first start in an Indy car on the 1.5 mile oval this weekend.
