Indy Lights’ drivers will have two open-test sessions in 2010.  Drivers will have the opportunity to test at Barber Motorsports Park next month (February 26th, 2010).  The second open-test day will occur on May 3rd, 2010 at Kentucky Speedway.

The drivers and teams have had the opportunity to test at Barber Motorsports Park previously, but this year the series will run an actual race at the Alabama circuit for the first time.  The race is scheduled for April 11th, 2010.

The series has also scheduled a in-season oval test day for Indy Lights’ rookies at Kentucky Speedway on May 3rd, 2010.

Perhaps the most exciting news of the day is the return of the incentive-program designed to get more Lights drivers into a testing role with IndyCar teams… Teams can earn an additional 300 bonus testing miles by testing a  Indy Lights driver at least 600 miles for a maximum of three private test days.  Hopefully, we will see more teams take advantage of this offer in 2010.
