Pedersen Learning INDYCAR SERIES Ropes with Foyt, Kirkwood

Benjamin Pedersen is preparing for his second Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires race of the season this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park, but he’s had the NTT INDYCAR SERIES on his mind in the two months since the Indy Lights season opener in late February at St. Petersburg. “I understand that it’s pretty rare that an INDYCAR team will just let a guy come in and be a part of it like they do,” Pedersen said. We’ve raced since age 4 together, so he’s there with the team, and the team is really open to me being there and learning. Pedersen said he has learned simple details about NTT INDYCAR SERIES racing that he wouldn’t otherwise learn until he was part of an INDYCAR team, such as strategy, pit stops and how to properly stop in the pit box. Pedersen said this mindset allows him to focus on the championship, which is his primary focus. But beyond that, Pedersen admitted he has his sights on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and wants to climb to the series in 2023, making his opportunity with AJ Foyt Racing even more beneficial. “Looking into next year, the goal and plan is 100 percent to be in INDYCAR,” Pedersen said.
