Jay Howard will be back in action

British driver Jay Howard will return to IndyCar Series action at the season-ending race at Las Vegas, with the 30-year-old teaming up again with Rahal-Letterman-Lanigan Racing in his third appearance of the season.

The 2006 Indy Lights champion has raced occasionally in the top-tier category since 2008, and will no doubt be hoping that a solid performance at the end of year event may propel him into a more regular role in 2012.

“We were impressed again by Jay’s pace and the ability that he showed in negotiating traffic at Texas, and we are anticipating a strong effort out of the Service Central car at Las Vegas,” RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal is quoted as saying during the announcement.

“Vegas will be a free-for-all on a very fast track, but Jay has never shied away from close racing and we expect to be competitive with both RLL cars in the season finale.”
