Jorge Goncalvez will return for his third season in Firestone Indy Lights with Belardi Auto Racing, the same team he drove for in 2011 and 2012.

After driving much of the 2011 season with a broken leg, Goncalvez came on strong, earning a podium in four of the final five races of the season. The late season success left the young Venezuelan with high hopes heading into 2012. Unfortunately, the results didn’t come as expected in with Goncalvez being denied a podium finish, despite logging six top-10 results. His best finish was sixth at Iowa Speedway after starting the race 11th.

With a return to Belardi Auto Racing for 2013, the high hopes for a strong season return. Goncalvez, 21, will again partner with teammate Peter Dempsey as they work to propel the team to the front of the pack. Working with Dempsey and having the team familiarity with Belardi should be a recipe for success in 2013.
