Bruno Palli is the latest addition to the Firestone Indy Lights Series season finale at Auto Club Speedway. One of the Team Viso Venezuela-supported drivers for Juncos Racing in Star Mazda, Palli will make his Indy Lights debut this weekend at Fontana after a test at Putnam Park last month.
Juncos' first season in Indy Lights, having acquired the equipment previously used by Davey Hamilton Racing, has seen sporadic starts with drivers JV Horto and Chase Austin.
Palli and Diego Ferreira have been coached, mentored and supported by IndyCar driver E.J. Viso, their Venezuelan countryman.
Palli joins Mike Larrison (Belardi Auto Racing) and Stefan Wilson (Fan Force United) as extra entries to the race, although the field is still only 14 cars.
