Pappas to Dale Coyne

Dale Coyne Racing has secured a coup in luring engineer Bill Pappas to their team for the 2009 IndyCar Series.

Pappas has earned several wins as an engineer for Target Chip Ganassi and has worked with drivers including Jimmy Vasser, Gil de Ferran, Juan Pablo Montoya and 2008 Dale Coyne racer Bruno Junqueira

A graduate of the Purdue University, Pappas is delighted to be joining Dale Coyne in their efforts to challenge at the front of the IndyCar field.

"Dale is committed to winning, and that has been my entire mission in racing," Pappas said. "We have a lot to do, but everyone on the team is committed to success in 2009 and beyond."

"I cannot say how excited we are to have someone the calibre of Bill Pappas join our efforts this year," added team owner Dale Coyne said. "Last year was an important learning curve for us, but with the addition of Bill we look to move strongly up the ladder into podium and winning positions."

@I am the very proud uncle of Bill Pappas, and I cannot imagine anyone more consumed with racing than Bill. Throughout his career, I am sure that Bill has demonstrated the highest standards both on and off the track. He has raised two wonderful children, and his pride and love for them knows no bounds. I am sure that Dale Coyne's Racing will come to appreciate Bill's talents more race after race.
