Howard schedule expands to five

Jay Howard will now contest five races in the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series, after the opening oval round at Kansas was added to his list.
The TBC Retail Group has announced that it will expand its sponsorship commitment to Jay Howard and Sarah Fisher Racing, allowing the Briton to include the 1 May race at Kansas Speedway to his schedule.

The 2006 Indy Pro Series champion has been offered a chance to return to the IndyCar Series this season, and was already slated to compete at Indianapolis, Texas, Mid-Ohio and Chicago in SFR's #66 Service Central-backed car.

"We added this race to our schedule because of the optimism the entire SFR team demonstrated during the recent practice sessions and we think this is a great kick-off to Jay's race season," senior vice-president of marketing Bob Crostarosa explained, "Jay is the driver to watch this year."

Fisher also will compete in the Road Runner Turbo Indy 300 at Kansas Speedway - the first oval race on the IZOD IndyCar Series schedule.

"TBC Retail Group has become a great marketing partner of our #66 programme this year, and to be adding Kansas is a huge plus for our 2010 efforts," said Howard, who participated in the first IZOD IndyCar Series Open Test last week at Barber Motorsports Park, "The track time at Kansas prior to heading into the 'Month of May' for the Indianapolis 500 is huge for our growing programme. I've competed at Kansas before and I'm grateful that TBC has added that to my schedule to start out the season."
