Coyne Taps Vautier For Texas

Dale Coye Racing has announced the signing of Tristan Vautier to pilot the teams No. 18 entry in Texas.

Vautier previously competed on the Texas oval in 2013 and 2015 finishing 18th and 20th with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Dale Coyne.

“We chose Tristan to fill the 18 seat at Texas because of his previous experience at Texas Motor Speedway,” said Team Owner Dale Coyne. “We think he can help the team and Ed (Jones) who has never raced or even tested there. Tristan has remained close with the team and he’s always done a good job for us. I expect much of the same going into this race weekend.”

Coyne's No. 18, which was left vacant following Sebastien Bourdais's qualifying injury in Indianapolis, was piloted by former F1 driver Esteban Gutierrez in Detroit.
