Clauson announces ambitious 200-race programme for 2016 including Indy 500

1 Comment

Bryan Clauson has announced that he will attempt to qualify for the 100th Indianapolis 500 as part of an ambitious 200 race programme for the 2016 season.

Clauson has raced twice before in the Indy 500, with his most recent effort coming in 2015 thanks to a partner deal between Jonathan Byrd’s Racing and KVSH Racing. An early accident meant that he was classified in 31st position overall.

The 26-year-old will work with Jonathan Byrd’s Racing once again for his ambitious 200 race programme that has been named: “The Chasing 200 Tour: Circular Insanity.”

Part of this will see Clauson attempt to qualify for the race at the Brickyard once again on May 29, but he will also be taking part in a variety of other series.

200 races. That’s one every 1.825 days. Circular insanity indeed.

“It started as a crazy idea I had and took shape in Las Vegas,” Clauson said at the announcement of his 2016 programme.

“It’s going to be a lot of racing and a lot of travel, but we feel pretty good about the partners and everybody we have involved.

“The amount of time and effort that’s gone into planning this adventure has been immense and I can’t thank everyone enough for getting this deal put together.”
