Conquest Racing has signed Italian driver Francesco Dracone for the next two rounds of the IndyCar series.
Dracone will be making his debut in the series this weekend at Mid-Ohio, and will keep the drive in the following race at Infineon Raceway.
"I'm very excited to be making my IZOD IndyCar Series debut this weekend at Mid-Ohio with Conquest Racing," said Dracone, who tested for the team last week at Mid-Ohio.
"I had my first taste of an Indy car last week during a test session and it was a great experience. I want to use these two races with Conquest Racing as preparation for a possible full season next year.
"I had a good test with the team and I really enjoyed working with everyone. I'm looking forward to this weekend to get back in the car and to continue my learning experience."
Dracone, who spent three seasons in the Italian F3 championship, has been competing in the European Formula 3000 Series.
