Kyle O’Gara To Run Freedom 100
SPEEDWAY, Ind. — USAC midget racer Kyle O’Gara will make his Firestone Indy Lights debut at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing has entered a partnership with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports to field a car for the 18-year-old Roncalli High School senior in the May 24 Freedom 100.
“It’s a dream come true for me to be racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” O’Gara said. “Sam Schmidt has proven over and over that his team knows how to put together a car that can win in Firestone Indy Lights competition, and I’m excited to be apart of that and learn as much as possible.”
The O’Gara family has been involved in racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for more than 35 years in various capacities from mechanics and crew chiefs to engineers, race strategists and team owners.
Kyle O’Gara will be the first O’Gara to race at the famous track however, excluding his sister-in-law Sarah Fisher.
“It will be very rewarding to watch Kyle drive over the yard of bricks after knowing and working with him for so long,” Fisher said. “Being part of most of his racing efforts to date, it’s been exciting to see him moving up the ladder. This rung will be the most fun so far, knowing what his next steps could be. I’m tremendously proud of him and look forward to standing on the grid with him at Indianapolis.”
