IL: Strous joins TMR

Firestone Indy Lights winner Junior Strous concludes deal with Team Moore Racing for 2010.
Junior Strous, who won his first two Firestone Indy Lights races last season, will return to the series in 2010 with Team Moore Racing.

The 23-year-old Dutchman will drive the #2 Xtreme Coil Drilling-Shell car for the team as part of the Shell Driver Development Programme.

Team Moore Racing won its first race in 2008 with Pablo Donoso and finished tenth in Firestone Indy Lights entrant points last season with Andrew Prendeville's podium finish at Chicagoland Speedway as its highlight of the season.

Team co-owners Mark Moore and Tom Wood hope Strous can return to the team to championship contention in 2010.

"Tom and I are very proud to have Junior competing for us in the 2010 championship," Moore said. "I believe he is a rare talent and has great charisma. When you at look the past season, Strous had the highest per race win ratio of any of the drivers. This is very impressive given the talent level of our series.

"He is also quite a fine young man and I know we will work well together. This is going to be a great season for us all."

I've followed Strous for a long time, and he has an impressive win percentage. He is ready for Indycar and F1. If he finally gets a seat in a good team he'll win the champ.

At first i didn't like him, dunno why. I got to talk to him at the Long Beach GP and he is one of the nicest drivers i have ever met! Def. a big fan now! He is also a professional, not some rich kid with daddy paying for him. Like don said: 'the real deal'
