Antonio Serravale

After competing in the first two rounds of the 2022 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires season with Abel Motorsports, Antonio Serravalle is joining HMD Motorsports with Dale Coyne Racing for this weekend's Indy Lights Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

The 19-year-old Canadian driver will continue to carry No. 11 on his HMD-prepared entry as he joins Linus Lundqvist, Daniel Frost, Christian Bogle and Benjamin Pedersen (Global Racing Group with HMD Motorsports) in the organization's five-car program.

Serravalle claimed a pair of top-10 finishes in the opening two rounds of the season with Abel Motorsports. Last week, he joined HMD Motorsports at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for a team test, along with the four other HMD Motorsports entries, as well as five additional Indy Lights drivers. He ran fifth after only a few hours of running.

While Serravalle did not start the season with HMD Motorsports, this is not the first time he has been linked with the team. Serravalle was set to join HMD Motorsports for the 2020 Indy Lights season prior to the season being canceled. Leading up to the season, Serravalle and the team worked together at multiple test events.

"I would like to say a big thank you to Bill Abel, John Brunner and everyone at Abel Motorsports for all of the support and opportunities they provided," Serravalle said. "I am thankful for them giving us a race-by-race program and not letting me miss any of the first two event weekends. I am happy there was an opportunity open where I can join HMD Motorsports, which is a highly successful and experienced team. I feel good after the test last week at Mid-Ohio, and I look forward to this weekend and the rest of the 2022 season."

This weekend's event on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course features a doubleheader. Practice begins Friday with qualifying and Race 1 to follow. The weekend's second race will take place on Saturday morning ahead of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES' GMR Grand Prix.
