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 team’s only full-season driver, was recently informed that he wouldn’t have a spot with the program in 2020.“It seems like a similar story in IndyCar with a lot of teams needing funding from the driver, which I don’t have right now, and the conversations usually don’t go too far after that,” said Pigot in an interview with IndyStar. “I think it’s kind of always been the nature of the beast. I’m definitely not the first driver to be in this situation and certainly won’t be the last, but teams need funding to run the programs, and if they can’t source it for themselves, then they have to rely on the driver.”
