Legacy Autosport will move its Indiana-based race team to the Indy Lights championship in 2023, with plans to field two cars in the INDYCAR-sanctioned development series.
The team fields a car this season for Simon Sikes in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship, the initial developmental series that grooms drivers for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. Legacy also has entered cars in the Indy Pro 2000 presented by Cooper Tires championship, the middle rung on the development ladder. Indy Lights is the final step.
Legacy’s owner is Louis Michael Meyer, great grandson of Louis Meyer - the first three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and the first to celebrate a “500” win with milk in victory lane.
“I speak for everyone here at Legacy Autosport when I say we are thrilled to be moving up the Road To Indy to Indy Lights,” Meyer said. “We have really enjoyed our time in the USF2000 and Indy Pro 2000 series and working with everyone at Andersen Promotions.
Meyer formed Legacy Autosport four years ago after extensive experience in various series, including Indy Lights. The team is based in Lebanon, Indiana, about 30 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
“It’s been a talking point for a year now and some opportunities came along to make the final decision of selling our USF2000 and Indy Pro 2000 cars and purchasing our first IL-15 Indy Lights chassis,” Meyer said.
The team also will compete in 2023 in the USAC Silver Crown series.
