Luhr Making IndyCar Debut At Sonoma

Adding Luhr behind the wheel in Sonoma is a step of growth for SFHR and RW, who plan to continue expanding the young IZOD IndyCar Series team, which moved into a brand new state-of-the-art facility in Speedway, Ind. earlier this year.

“As we continue to raise the bar at SFHR, we are always looking for the next level to stay ahead of the curve,” SFHR team principal, Wink Hartman said. “Adding Lucas [Luhr] to the Sonoma event for us is not only exciting, knowing his championship abilities, but will give us a sounding board towards two-car efforts in the future. We know that’s where we would like to be as a team, and this is one step towards our exploration of that ability.”

“One of the big keys to success of this program will be the opportunity we will be able to provide Lucas [Luhr] for two days of testing,” said SFHR co-owner, Sarah Fisher. “It will be a great opportunity overall to give Josef [Newgarden] the chance to work with a teammate.”

To give Luhr seat time in an open wheel car before his IZOD IndyCar Series debut, Luhr and SFHR will participate in a manufacturer test in Sonoma on Aug. 13.

“I know I have a lot to learn in a very short time,” Luhr said. “It’s not going to be easy, but it’s a great challenge. I know Sonoma having raced there in the past and I am looking forward to working with everyone at RW/SFHR and preparing for the race.”
