Lazier will drive the No. 4 Lazier/Burns Racing car in his 19th race while celebrating his 20th anniversary of winning the Greatest Spectacle in Racing in 1996.
“This race marks a momentous anniversary for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and our sport,” said Lazier, who hails from Vail, Colo. A fan favorite and familiar face at the track, Lazier said he couldn’t resist another chance to get behind the wheel.
“This year’s entry wouldn’t have happened without the help of Indianapolis contractor Tom Burns. Tom has fielded the likes of Dominic Dobson and Jeff Andretti in the past and now joins our race team to be a part of the 100th running.”
Lazier, 48, the oldest driver competing this year, has five top-five finishes.
