Sting Ray Robb to drive the No. 41 AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet in 2024



INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 15, 2023) -- Destiny called. Sting Ray Robb, the young driver with one of the coolest names in motorsports, will drive the No. 41 Chevrolet-powered Indy car next year for another one of the coolest names in motorsports, A.J. Foyt.

 

Robb, who's named after the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, is entering his second year in the NTT INDYCAR Series and for the first time in his career, he will be driving a Chevrolet-powered car.

 

"I’m truly honored to pilot the No. 41 AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet for the ‘24 season," said Robb who currently lives in Indianapolis. "This is a dream come true to be driving for the legendary A.J. Foyt and his team under the leadership of Larry Foyt.  It provides an opportunity for me to implement past lessons and carry momentum forward in my sophomore season as we enter a very competitive field of teams and drivers.  Building together upon our successes, I am excited for the season ahead. 

 

"To my family of partners and supporters thank you for being a part of this journey, we’ll continue to work hard and grow into what God has called us to be."

 

Robb, who calls Payette, Idaho his hometown, ascended to the top level of motorsports quickly; at age 21, he made his IndyCar debut driving for Dale Coyne Racing and notched his career best finish of 12th in the final race of the season in Monterey, Calif.

 

Now 22, Robb is a graduate of IndyCar's open wheel ladder series. He won the Indy Pro 2000 title in 2020 with seven wins, five poles, 11 podiums and four track records. That performance earned him a scholarship to the INDY NXT by Firestone series. In his second year of competition, he showed tremendous progress, earning the Vice-Champion title and winning the season finale. Enroute to his runner-up status in 2022, he captured two poles, ten top-5 finishes -- eight of which were on the podium -- and ten top-10s in 14 races.

“I’ve been working with Sting Ray since 2017, shortly after he graduated from go-karts to racecars," explained Robb's manager Pieter Rossi of One Motorsports Marketing and Management, LLC. "His impressive karting resume inspired me to want to work with him. At 16, he was equally impressive in his maturity, discipline, and desire to race at a high level. On his way to INDYCAR, Sting Ray won at each level and worked harder than those around him. It’s been a privilege to watch his growth and be part of his success. 

 

"As Sting Ray enters his sophomore year in INDYCAR, where the racing and competition is fierce, I’m very confident that Sting Ray will continue to hone his skills and impress. I'm looking forward to a great season ahead." 

 

Robb's car will be based in the team's Speedway, Ind. race shop which is also where the team's engineering department, headed up by Michael Cannon, is located.

 

AJ Foyt Racing Team President Larry Foyt said, "I'm looking forward to working with Sting Ray. I have to admit his name caught my eye when he was in the junior formulas, so I watched his rise through INDYCAR's ladder system where he did really well. I believe he is a great addition to our program and will showcase everything he learned in his rookie campaign in the NTT INDYCAR Series." 

 

The NTT INDYCAR Series kicks off its season in Florida with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday, March 10.
