Servia confirmed for two-race stint with Panther

"We have some good leadership with our team right now in Tim Broyles as our team manager, Bret Schmitt as our crew chief and Matt Barnes as our lead engineer,” said Carpenter. "Plus we have a veteran team that proved they can win as we did last year at Fontana. Between the team and myself, we will continue to work hard and look to win races including this Saturday's event.”

Carpenter added that he was delighted to see Walker take up his new position with IndyCar and thought that good things would come from it for the whole sport.

"While we will miss Derrick being a part of Ed Carpenter Racing, we are excited about his new opportunity to join the leadership team at IndyCar,” he said Carpenter. "Derrick has done a phenomenal job for ECR. He really was the architect of our team, and helped up establish a very strong foundation that will continue to lead to future successes. I am confident that he will do an outstanding job at IndyCar. He will be an asset there that will also help the race teams within the series.”
