Andersen Racing will field a car for one of its Star Mazda drivers, Anders Krohn, in this weekend's Corning 100 Firestone Indy Lights race at Watkins Glen. Krohn will be the first driver to compete in all three formula car classes in which the Palmetto, Fla.-based team is involved – Formula 2000, Star Mazda and Indy Lights.
"As a team whose reason for being is the development and advancement of young drivers, we have in Anders Krohn the prototypical Andersen Racing driver," said team co-owner Dan Andersen. "He came to us in 2008 and simply dominated the F2000 level with nine victories in 14 races. He came back to us this year in Star Mazda and is currently second in the points, and we will be contesting for that championship for the rest of the year. Getting him into a Firestone Indy Lights car with our team completes the cycle and makes me extremely happy. He is a clear talent who will advance in racing until he reaches the top."
Andersen Racing isn't currently fielding a Formula 2000 team but its principals are still very much involved with that division of cars because they are administering the first step in the Indy Racing League's Road to Indy ladder, the "Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship Powered by Mazda." Andersen Racing has fielded cars for six different drivers so far this year in the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear: Krohn, Mikael Grenier, Tristan Vautier, Nick Andries, Dom Bastien and Court Vernon.
