Lewis, Crews join Michael Crawford Motorsports Michael Crawford Motorsports will campaign drivers CR Crews and Shane Lewis in the Indy Pro Series season opener March 24 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Crews, an 18-year-old Dallas native, will drive the No. 6 Magnus Energy Marketing car, while Lewis, who resides in nearby Jupiter, Fla., will drive the No. 8.
"I got my feet wet on both the ovals and road races last year," said Crews, who made four Indy Pro Series starts, recording two top-10 finishes. "I know I can win races in this series. I will win races in this series. I truly want to surprise as many people as possible by giving (team owner) Michael (Crawford) his best finishes."
Lewis, a veteran sports car racer, will perform double duty during the weekend, debuting in the Indy Pro Series and competing in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series.
"I'm excited," Lewis said. "I've raced almost everything on wheels but this will be my first time in an open-wheel car on an oval. Michael, Tim (Whiting, engineer) and all the Michael Crawford Motorsports guys have been great to work with. I was hoping to be here at Homestead in the IndyCar Series car, but I couldn't pass on the chance to race the Indy Pro Series car. If you look at the depth of talent and the professionalism of the teams in this series, I think this will be the best open-wheel race of the weekend."
