Guthrie Racing signs Wieringa for season opener

Indy Pro Series veteran Tom Wieringa has signed a one-race deal with Guthrie Racing for the season-opening Homestead-Miami 100 on March 29.

“I feel like part of the family again with Guthrie Racing," Wieringa said. “They’re the best people I’ve ever been in contact with, and I’ve been on a lot of teams over the years. They’ve all known each other for 20-plus years and are good, honest, hard-working guys. I can’t wait to get on the track again because we have a great setup for Homestead."

Wieringa made 12 starts for Guthrie Racing in 2007 with a best finish of 12th at Homestead. He hopes to put together a program with the team to run the remaining oval events.

“It’s great to have Tom back," team owner Jim Guthrie said. "He brings a unique perspective to the team and his fun-seeking spirit is contagious, but he is quite a competitor with a desire to win. Tom showed moments of brilliance last year running in the top 10 in many of the test sessions, and I’m looking forward to putting him in the top five this year."
