Beatriz to drive for Coyne through Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ana Beatriz will drive for Dale Coyne Racing through the Indianapolis 500.
Coyne had initially submitted the No. 18 Honda entry as “TBA” for this Sunday’s race at Barber Motorsports Park. When funding from the Ipiringa oil company came through, the Brazilian was named the driver for the next four races.
Beatriz drove the car in the season-opening race at St. Petersburg. She started 25th and finished 22nd.
Coyne also said Justin Wilson’s No. 19 entry will carry the colors and markings of the Boy Scouts of America for the rest of the season. Dale and Gail Coyne first partnered with the organization four years ago.
