AJ Foyt Racing Counting on Consistency with Bourdais, Kellett, Kimball

There is little time to waste at an NTT INDYCAR SERIES event, even at Indianapolis Motor Speedway when the days leading up to the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge are double-digit in nature. “One of our issues has just been … too many changes,” Foyt said in last Thursday’s announcement that Charlie Kimball will return to the team for the two May races at IMS. Kimball drove in all 14 races for Foyt last season, and his pairing with Bourdais late in the year produced a pair of top-eight finishes in the season-ending Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Last year’s reshuffling of the INDYCAR schedule left Bourdais with only three races – all with the Foyt team – and Kellett made eight starts. He finished fifth in three consecutive years in the event (2014-16). Kimball will aim for his 11th start in the “500,” Bourdais his ninth. “I’m really excited to be rolling into Indianapolis with three guys we know,” Larry Foyt said.
