Under the guidance and assistance of FAZZT Racing Team Maryeve Dufault will join Team Apex for three Star Mazda events in 2010. She will run two ovals and one street course this year as a FAZZT development driver.
It was announced back in January that the 27-year-old was chosen as the team’s development driver. I stand by my statement then, she is a bit of a surprise pick for the program, but it’s great to see more teams stepping up to the plate to help develop drivers.
Maryeve will test a Star Mazda car with Team Apex at O’Reilly Raceway Park on May 5th, 2010 in preparation for her first event with the team: the Night Before the 500. She will follow that up with the June race at Iowa Speedway and then conclude her season at Trois-Rivieres in August. It’s possible that a few more events could be added at a later date.
