CFH Racing announced that Preferred Freezer Services (PFS) will be partnering with the team to field a third entry in both Verizon IndyCar Series events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for J R Hildebrand. Hildebrand will drive PFS’s #6 CFH Racing Chevrolet for the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis on May 9 and the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 set for May 24. PFS, a provider of full-service temperature-controlled warehouses, partnered with what was previously Ed Carpenter Racing to field a car for Hildebrand in the 2014 Indianapolis 500. With corporate headquarters in New Jersey, PFS operates in 35 facilities in nine regions nationwide and has cold storage warehouses in China and Vietnam. Hildebrand, 27, will be making his fifth Indianapolis 500 start and his first in the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. He was named the 2011 Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year after finishing second to Dan Wheldon and captured the 2009 Indy Lights Championship. In his four races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Hildebrand has two Top 10 starts and two Top 10 finishes.
“We are definitely looking forward to having Preferred Freezer Services back on the car,” said Hildebrand. “We had a lot of fun with them in 2014 and we be rolling the polar bear back out into the garage area this year. Even though we were a one-off entry last year, we were very fast and had a really easy month. Preferred Freezer Services was a big part of that, they are a great group to work with, and it’s going to make this year that much more exciting.” Sausalito CA native Hildebrand rounds out CFH Racing’s all-American driver line-up for the Indianapolis 500. CFH Racing’s roster also includes Josef Newgarden of Nashville TN in the #21 Century 21 Chevrolet and team co-owner Ed Carpenter of Indianapolis IN, driving the #20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet. All three were part of the Fast Nine Shootout during qualifications for the Indianapolis 500 in 2014, where the nine quickest drivers of the 33-car field compete for the pole position. Carpenter ultimately earned the first starting spot for the second consecutive year; Hildebrand started ninth and finished 10th, the highest-finishing position of the three CFH Racing drivers. Hildebrand will be making his first start around the 2.434-mile, 14-turn IMS road course. CFH Racing’s three-car effort for the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis includes Hildebrand, Newgarden, and Luca Filippi of Italy, driver of the #20 on all road and street course events. Both the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis 500 will be broadcast live on ABC-TV. Access www.preferredfreezer.com for more information.
