Andretti team signs Karam for USF2000
Andretti Autosport announced today it has signed 15-year-old Sage Karam to drive for the team in the 2010 USF2000 National Championship.

The entry marks Andretti Autosport's debut in the Indy Racing League's new 'Road to Indy' driver development program. Comfort Revolution, a developer and distributor of specialty bedding mattresses and accessories, and The Michael Fux Foundation will sponsor the effort.

Karam, a native of Nazareth, Pa., has spent the last few years competing in the Skip Barber National championship, a part of the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development ladder program, as well as the World Karting Association (WKA). He was the only American driver to compete in both a national karting championship and an open-wheel professional series full time in 2009. 

Karam began competing in karts at the age of five. He has since established himself as a 35-time WKA and Indy Racing League (IRL) Stars of Karting national champion. Karam also stands as the only driver ever to win a WKA Triple Crown Championship and titles in the IRL Stars of Karting (East, West and National) all in the same year (2007). In 2008, Karam - then 13 -- established himself as the youngest winner in the history of the Skip Barber Shootout.

Sanctioned by the IRL, the USF2000 National Championship, presented by Cooper Racing Tires and powered by Mazda, is one of two series part of both the IRL's Road to Indy ladder system and the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development driver program. The series' 2010 season will begin March 27-28 on the street circuit in St. Petersburg, Fla., in support of an IZOD IndyCar Series headliner.
