Larrison to Indy Lights
Veteran Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series Driver Mike Larrison has signed on to compete in the 2012 Indy Lights Series piloting the Ballardi Racing #19. Larrison will also return full time to the MSRXSS Davey Hamilton Racing winged sprint car.
“I'm very excited for the 2012 racing season with MSR and my announcement to race this season with Bellardi Auto Racing. I will be running Bellardi's #19 Indy Lights car, making my debut in the Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I feel with the intense and high speed racing schedule with MSR, it will definitely help me in my step up to my 2012 Indy Lights deal with Bellardi Auto Racing. I couldn't have rebounded back without all the support of my family and friends, Jennifer Straumins and Bill Anderson from Calumet specialty/ Tru Fuel, and all my other sponsors Royal Oak, Turtle wax and Champion Oil Brands. After laying in a hospital bed last fall for three months, from my testing accident with Andretti Autosports, I am very blessed and thankful for the opportunities Bellardi and Hamilton are giving me in 2012” commented Mike.
MSRXSS President Jim Hanks added “We wish Mike and his Indy Lights team the very best this coming season. Mike has worked extremely hard to come back after his testing incident last year and shown the kind of heart and commitment it takes to be a winner. Mike, his new teammate Brian Olson with their first class Davey Hamilton Racing operation is a tremendous asset to our growing series. It is exciting to have drivers like Mike and Jacob Wilson racing in Indy Lights.”
