Ed Carpenter Racing announced Monday that its new IZOD IndyCar Series team's No. 20 entry will be powered by Chevrolet's 2.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine.
Carpenter, who scored his first IndyCar win at Kentucky last season with Sarah Fisher Racing, announced in November that he was forming his own team with stepfather and former IndyCar boss Tony George, with backing from Fuzzy's vodka. The team was confirmed as a member of IndyCar's Leader's Circle program last week.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Chevrolet for the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series,” said Carpenter. “Chevrolet has been an American legend for over a century and a winner in all forms of competition. It will be great to have the famed Bowtie back in the IndyCar Series.
"Being an American driver with an American engine makes me very proud to represent the Chevrolet brand. I can't wait to have the Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet-powered machine on the track.”
ECR joins Team Penske, Andretti Autosport, KV Racing Technology and Panther Racing as Chevy-powered teams for the 2012 season.
