Vision Racing's Drake ready for Round Two at Indianapolis
Menards Infiniti Pro Series driver Jay Drake may be a
series rookie by definition, but as he prepares to return to the Indianapolis
Motor Speedway for his second Futaba Freedom 100, Drake will carry the
confidence of a veteran with him. After finishing a solid fourth in his series debut at
the facility in 2004, Drake will seek his first series victory in the Futaba
Freedom 100 on May 27.
"We're looking forward to returning to the speedway for this year's race,"
Drake said. "I learned a lot by competing last year, and I think that experience
will definitely help me in this year's event. It's also exciting to be able
to go into this year's race with my new team, Vision Racing. We've been
together since the start of the season, and I think that we've been able to build a
great foundation to work from. That stability will help us perform well at
Indianapolis this month."
Drake, who competes in the No. 20 car in the Menards Infiniti Pro Series for
Vision Racing, has had a strong start to the 2005 racing season. Posting a
season-best series finish of fifth at Homestead-Miami Speedway, he is currently
ninth in series points. In addition to his MIPS efforts, Drake also pilots the
No. 21 USAC National Sprint Car and the No. 22 USAC Silver Crown Series
