Newton, IA – Bryan Herta Autosport is announced today that Anders Krohn will pilot the No. 28 entry for the Firestone Indy Lights race this weekend at Iowa Speedway.
The 24-year-old driver hails from Stavanger, Norway and currently resides in St. Petersburg, FL. Nicknamed “The Viking,” he began racing at the age of three. Krohn climbed the karting ladder in Europe, culminating with a win in the North-European Karting Championship. He then made the step into European Formula Ford in 2007, finishing second in the championship. He’s been racing in the U.S. since 2008, earning the championship and being named Rookie of the Year in the F2000 Series. Krohn competed in the Star Mazda Series for two years before stepping into a Firestone Indy Lights car in 2011.
Through the 115-lap FIL race, Krohn aims to create awareness for the I-Tec and Yellow Jacket ‘Wanna Frac More?’ campaign, which showcases their supreme technology in Hydraulic Fracturing. In addition, Premiere Glass & Mirror will make their racing sponsorship debut on BHA’s No. 28 car.
“It was a great pleasure to work with Bryan Herta Autosport in Indianapolis and I feel like collectively, we have some unfinished business,” said Krohn. “Therefore, I’m thrilled to be back with them at Iowa. I’m really looking forward to a strong showing for my sponsors, i-Tec, Yellow Jacket and Premiere Glass & Mirror.
“BHA is such a tight-knit group and I feel very fortunate to have such quality people working on my behalf. A special thanks to Bryan Herta and Steve Newey for working tirelessly to help me put this deal together.”
The Firestone Indy Lights race at Iowa Speedway will take place on Saturday, June 23, just before the IZOD IndyCar Series hits the 0.875-mile oval. Pre-race activities start at 6:30 p.m. CST (local) with the estimated green flag drop at 6:40 p.m. The race will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network after the IndyCar race (estimated time is approximately 12 a.m. CST).
