Team Pelfrey Indy Lights will welcome back Colombian racer Juan Piedrahita for the 2017 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires season.

The 25-year-old will mark his fourth season in Indy Lights as the season commences in St. Petersburg, Fla. March 11-12.

“I couldn’t be happier to rejoin Team Pelfrey for the 2017 Indy Lights season. After working with the crew last year, I knew it was the right fit coming into this year,” Piedrahita said. “(Team manager) Gary (Neal) and (engineer) Yves (Touron) have given me a lot of confidence and they always have a very competitive car at every track. We are going be extremely competitive this year and for sure we are going to seal the deal in the Freedom 100.”

Piedrahita drove to six top-10 finishes in 2016 with Team Pelfrey IL and will return to pilot the signature yellow No. 2 Petrosur/Team Pelfrey machine.

“We are extremely happy to welcome Juan back to Team Pelfrey IL for the 2017 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires,” Neal said. “We built a lot of momentum in post 2016 season testing with Juan and I am sure we will see some great results this season.”
