The IZOD IndyCar driver will replace Ryan Briscoe still on the mend from last month’s Honda Indy Toronto, where he sustained a fractured wrist.
Pagenaud has been drafted in to team with nine-time national driving champion Scott Tucker in Level 5’s No. 551 Siemens/Alpina Watches/Ohiya Casino Resort-sponsored Honda Performance Development ARX-03b race car.
Joining P2 championship leader Marino Franchitti in the No. 552 HPD this weekend will be Ricardo Gonzalez, who recently notched the P2 class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“It’s good to have both Simon and Ricardo with us this weekend and we’re anticipating having Ryan back for the next race at Baltimore,” said Level 5 team manager, David Stone.
