Dallas-based SH Racing confirmed Thursday that while it will again team up with veteran IZOD IndyCar Series driver Tomas Scheckter for an entry in the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix next month, it will do so with a different technical partner.
Scheckter will drive the the Redline Xtreme-sponsored car in the Sept. 4 race that will be conducted on the downtown streets adjacent to the Inner Harbor and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
“Our original plan after forming SH Racing was to concentrate on and run the Indianapolis 500," team principal James Sullivan said. "After capturing an eighth-place finish at Indy, we decided collectively we'd like to enter at least one more event this season, and Scheckter was the logical choice. This Baltimore race and the months immediately following will be used strategically to evaluate all aspects of our program and build SH Racing's plans around the IZOD IndyCar series for 2012."
The team says it will announce a technical partnership next week for the Baltimore race. Scheckter is also competing this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, filling in for the injured Justin WIlson in the No. 22 Dreyer & Reinbold Racing entry.
