Film fans should recognize Brandt’s name, since he and co-writer Derek Hass have worked on high profile films…
de Ferran Dragon Racing
de Ferran Dragon Racing is a racing team in the Indy Racing League IndyCar Series owned by Stephen J. Luczo, Jay Penske, and Gil de Ferran. They debuted as Luczo Dragon Racing at the 2007 Indianapolis 500 with driver Ryan Briscoe. The car was prepared by Penske Racing which is owned by Jay's father Roger. In addition, Briscoe was a driver for Penske's American Le Mans Series team. Briscoe qualified 7th and finished 5th in the race.
Luczo Dragon ran a 6 race schedule in 2008 including the Indianapolis 500 with IndyCar veteran Tomas Scheckter. However, unlike in the 2007 "500", the team did not receive support or cars from Penske Racing. While qualifying well, the team failed to finish every race but one, knocked out by crashes twice and mechanical trouble three times. Scheckter finished 21st in the only race he completed, the Detroit Indy Grand Prix.
For the 2010 season, the team merged with de Ferran Motorsports to form de Ferran Luczo Dragon Racing. The team will again run a full season for Matos, plus Davey Hamilton at the Indy 500 and other select races. Before the 2010 Indy 500, the team renamed itself de Ferran Dragon Racing as the previous name was "too long" according to co-owner Steve Luczo.
