Lloyd joins Coyne for IndyCar season-opener

Former Indy Lights champion Alex lloyd will make only his fourth IndyCar Series outing in three seasons after agreeing terms to race in the inaugural Sao Paolo Indy 300 for Dale Coyne Racing.
Dale Coyne Racing announced that 2007 Firestone Indy Lights champion Alex Lloyd will drive the #19 Boy Scouts of America car in the season-opening IZOD IndyCar Series event, the Sao Paulo Indy 300, in Brazil this weekend.

The deal is a late one for both parties, and is for the season-opener only at present, following Coyne's decision to ink Milka Duno to a full series contract last week. Lloyd will be making his first IndyCar appearance on a road course after making three oval appearances – including two in the Indianapolis 500 - over the past two seasons.

The 25-year old Briton, who dominated the 2007 Firestone Indy Lights season and made his senior series debut in the 2008 Indianapolis 500, started two races last year, finishing a career-best eighth for Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
