Schmidt Peterson Motorsports has just released a very interesting statement regarding the new/interim driver for their No 7 IndyCar entry at Toronto!
TORONTO, ONT. (July 13, 2017) – Schmidt Peterson Motorsports announced today that 27-year-old Colombian Sebastian Saavedra will pilot the No. 7 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda. This will see “Seb” partner with his former race engineer Blair Perschbacher; the duo won multiple races together during their time in the Indy Lights Championship including one pole position and one win at the Toronto Grand Prix.
The Entry will carry branding from AFS Racing and longtime supporter Gary Peterson who has competed against SPM for years. “We welcome the opportunity to compete with Ric and Sam at a venue where Seb and I have had great success in the past,” said Gary Peterson. Mikhail Aleshin will be on-site for this weekend’s event supporting the SPM team, however neither the team nor Aleshin will be providing any further comments at this time.
Is there something brewing between Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Mikhail Aleshin?
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
