David Malukas and Takuma Sato Will Compete for Dale Coyne Racing in the Indy 500
Dale Coyne Racing is an American professional open-wheel racing team. It competes in the IndyCar Series and has been around since 1984. The team was originally called Payton-Coyne Racing, and was a partnership between former Chicago Bears wide receiver Walter Payton and Dale Coyne. Dale Coyne has won several races, including the American Le Mans, and the IndyCar Series.
The 104th Indianapolis 500 held on August 26, 2020, and Takuma Sato returned to the sport after winning the inaugural race in May of the last year. Sato’s motorsports experience in the United States and internationally is extensive. Takuma Sato has announced his signing to drive for Dale Coyne Racing in the 2019 IndyCar Series. The Japanese driver began his career in 2010 with KV Racing Technology, where he won the Indianapolis 500 twice. He has since raced for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and A.J. Foyt Racing, among other teams. Although Dale Coyne Racing has never won the Indianapolis 500, the team is very well-established. The Japanese driver, 44, has five INDYCAR Series victories to his credit, and will make his debut in 2022 with Dale Coyne Racing with No. 51.
The Dale Coyne Racing with HMD Motorsports rookie finished 18th in qualifying at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. After the late-summer sweep at WWT Raceway, Malukas led the title by 10 points. He ended the season with four poles and 16 podiums. He was excited to return to Barber Motorsport Park in Alabama for the fourth round of the NTT INDYCAR series.
