Herrington joins O2 Racing Technology O2 Racing Technology announced Sept. 27 that Daniel Herrington will pilot the #36 Quamtel/DataJack entry in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
"I've known Daniel for several years now, and it's always been a pleasure working with him," Olson said. "We've got a lot of laps at Homestead, and with Daniel driving and Dave McMillan engineering, our expectations are high for a great result heading into the off-season. Daniel's smart, mature, and talented, and we're super-excited about the opportunity to work together as we both begin working on our 2011 programs."
Herrington, a 23-year-old native of Winston-Salem, N.C., earned his first win at Chicagoland Speedway in 2009 and is eager for the opportunity to once more show his talents thanks to an opportunity from a former teammate in Firestone Indy Lights, O2 Racing Technology team owner, Mark Olson.
"After watching from the sidelines for most of the year, I was very excited to hear about the opportunity with O2 for the season finale," Herrington said. "I have known both Mark and the engineer Dave McMillan for a number of years, with Dave bringing me my first Indy Lights podium in 2007. I am excited to work with them again. "
The race will be the home race for O2RT's sponsor Quamtel, which is based in the Fort Lauderdale area.
