IndyCar: Spencer Pigot out at Ed Carpenter Racing for 2020 season

Spencer Pigot, who for the last two seasons drove the No. 21 car for Ed Carpenter Racing and was the teamís only full-season driver, was recently informed that he wouldnít have a spot with the program in 2020.ďIt seems like a similar story in IndyCar with a lot of teams needing funding from the driver, which I donít have right now, and the conversations usually donít go too far after that,Ē said Pigot in an interview with IndyStar. ďI think itís kind of always been the nature of the beast. Iím definitely not the first driver to be in this situation and certainly wonít be the last, but teams need funding to run the programs, and if they canít source it for themselves, then they have to rely on the driver.Ē
