Bryan Herta Autosport announced March 5 that Jack Hawksworth will drive its Honda-powered No. 98 car for the 2014 IndyCar season.
The 23-year-old British driver tested with BHA at Sebring in February. The strength of his pace and feedback, combined with proven success in every junior category in which he has competed, made him a surprise contender for one of the last remaining seats in the IndyCar Championship.
BUSCH'S INDIANAPOLIS 500 ENTRY 'A DREAM COME TRUE'
For Kurt Busch, competing in the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race wasn't been a goal until recently because he never envisioned it was attainable.
On March 4, Busch announced he is one step closer to achieving that goal.
The 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion will join Andretti Autosport for the 98th Running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 25. He'll also seek to become the fourth driver to "do the double" by competing in the Coca-Cola 600 in Concord, N.C."To add a driver with the résumé of Kurt Busch to the Indianapolis 500 field is a huge gain for INDYCAR," said Derrick Walker, INDYCAR President of Competition and Operations. "We want to see the best 33 drivers put their skills to the test on the biggest stage in motorsports, regardless of which series they come from. To attempt 'the Double' is a tremendous challenge, and we're looking forward to watching Kurt accomplish the feat this May."
Busch, 35, who is dedicating the effort to U.S. military personnel serving around the world, said the opportunity "is a dream come true."
