Vision Racing has signed drivers Ed Carpenter and A.J. Foyt IV, who will both return to the team for the 2008 IndyCar Series season.
Carpenter will be participating in his fourth consecutive season with Vision Racing in the No. 20, while Foyt is returning for his second season with the team. Foyt will drive the No. 2 car.
Carpenter, who has been with the team since its inception in 2005, is determined to make his fifth season overall his best. Last year, Carpenter recorded six top-10 finishes.
"I wasn't able to capitalize on the team's growth in 2007 like I wanted," Carpenter said. "I had some good runs last season, but I expected more. It seemed that more often than not we were the victim of bad luck last year and we've got to look to create our own good fortune this year. The potential, both in myself and the team are there, we just have to make it happen this season."
AJ Foyt IV
Foyt, grandson of four-time Indianapolis 500 winner A.J. Foyt, will be competing in his fifth full IndyCar Series and sixth season overall. Last season, Foyt recorded his first top-five finish and matched a team-high finish with a third place at Kentucky Speedway.
"Last season was really good for me in that I was able to prove to myself that I can be successful in these cars," Foyt said. "After a taste of what the team and I can do together, I am excited about getting back out there this season and working together to be even better."
