2015 Indy Lights champion Spencer Pigot will compete for Ed Carpenter Racing in the remaining road and street course events during the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season.

The young American had raced for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing around the streets of St Petersburg and in the two races at Indianapolis this season, but his three-race deal with that team ended after last weekend’s Indianapolis 500.

Pigot will share the #20 seat with team owner Ed Carpenter, who will compete in the oval races, with both drivers partnering full-time entry Josef Newgarden.

“I’m very excited to be joining Ed Carpenter Racing for the remainder of the season on road and street courses,” said Pigot. “ECR has been very strong in 2016 and I hope we can continue to build on the success they’ve already had.

“I have to thank Fuzzy’s Vodka and Rising Star Racing for the opportunity to continue my IndyCar career this season. This weekend in Detroit will be the first time we work together, they have a lot of talented people within the team and we will try to hit the ground running.

“I’d also like to thank Bobby Rahal and the RLL team for giving me my first shot in IndyCar.”
