The 2016 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires series has a new driver in the form of Canadian Dalton Kellett, who will step up with Andretti Autosport from the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
Kellett has spent the last two years in Pro Mazda, a year apiece with Team Pelfrey and Andretti. He also made one Indy Lights start with the previous car, with Team E Racing, in 2013 at Baltimore.
He’ll drive the No. 28 K-Line Insulators USA machine next season
“I’m very excited to return with Andretti Autosport for the 2016 season in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires,” said Kellett, a recent graduate from Engineering Physics at Queen’s University. “2015 marked my first year with the team in the Pro Mazda Championship, having the opportunity to grow that relationship in the upcoming season is an immense honor. I feel like over the last year we did a lot of good work with the Pro Mazda and I’m very excited to get to work with the IL-15 for its second season in competition.”
“Having recently graduated, this season will be the first year that I won’t have to go back to school, and I’m looking forward to having the entire off season to do lots of testing with the team and get fit for the season opener. I’m very happy to have K-Line Insulators back on the car and want to thank Andretti Autosport for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to a very successful season in Indy Lights.”
