Marc Williams, who finished 17th on his Indy Pro Series and oval track debut in the Freedom 100, has announced that he will complete the season with Michael Crawford Motorsports.

The 18-year old New Zealander will drive the #6 car in the remaining twelve races this season, beginning with the Road Runner 100 at the Milwaukee Mile this weekend [2 June].

"This is great," Williams said, "Michael Crawford Motorsports is a really good team, a good situation to be involved with. I'm going to make this a learning year and then make a really good run at things next year."

The addition of Williams also marks a big step for Michael Crawford Motorsports, as the second-year team has typically hired drivers on a race-by-race basis for its two-car effort.

"This is outstanding news," eponymous team owner Crawford admitted, "This really adds some stability to our programme. We're very pleased to have Marc driving for us. He's a very talented young man who tested well with us a few weeks ago and drove a very solid race in his debut at a very daunting racetrack."
