James Davison will compete in this year’s 104th running of the Indianapolis 500, which takes place in two weeks on August 23.
Davison will be driving the #51 Honda for Rick Ware Racing, who has partnered with Byrd Racing and Daly Coyne Racing to get the last-minute entry sorted out.
This is only the 31st entry confirmed for this year’s Indy 500, which traditionally has 33 entries in a full field. Even if a couple more entries are confirmed in the coming days, there will likely not be any drivers bumped out of the race this year.
Davison has raced with Dale Coyne Racing in the past and will be the team’s third entry in this year’s infamous race, alongside young team-mates Alex Palou and Santino Ferrucci.
Last year Davison finished in 12th at the Indy 500, his best result from his five attempts so far.
Following last minute changes earlier in the week, there will be no fans in attendance for the race or any other sessions and the drivers will have their first look at the track on Wednesday of next week.
Qualifying will take place over the following weekend, with the Indianapolis 500 set to run in August for the first time on Sunday, August 23.
