Stefan Wilson has signed with Bryan Herta Autosport for the 2010 Firestone Indy Lights season. Wilson, 20, is the younger brother of IndyCar driver Justin Wilson. He ran 6 races last season in Indy Lights and posted a best finish of 4th at Toronto. Perhaps more impressive was his drive at Mid-Ohio where he picked off 9 drivers to earn the hard charger award. He finished 8th after starting 17th.
By all reports Wilson gelled with the team very quickly last weekend during a test at Firebird International Raceway. It was his first test with the team. He also completed two tests with Sam Schmidt Motorsports this off-season, one of which was at Kentucky in an effort to gain some oval experience for 2010. All of the events he ran in 2009 were road and street course races.
This is likely a really solid move for Wilson and it will be fun to watch his progression as well as that of Bryan Herta Autosport.
