Bryan Herta Autosport is happy to announce that Anders Krohn will pilot the No. 28 entry for the Firestone Indy Lights Freedom 100 race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 24 year-old Krohn, who hails from Stavanger, Norway, and currently resides in St. Petersburg, Fla., aims to create awareness for the I-Tec and Yellow Jacket 'Wanna Frac More?' campaign in his return to Indy Lights competition. The campaign showcases the organization's supreme technology in Hydraulic Fracturing. In addition, Premiere Glass & Mirror will make their racing sponsorship debut on the Bryan Herta No. 28 car during the prestigious Freedom 100.

"Racing for Bryan Herta Autosport means that I'm stepping into one of the most highly regarded teams out there," said Krohn. "The fact that I get to make my first appearance for them at Indianapolis Motor Speedway simply adds to the excitement. I've been pushing hard to race at the Brickyard again, and couldn't be happier about making my Firestone Indy Lights return with BHA.

"I'm also excited about having I-Tec and Yellow Jacket partner up with us for this event, and I want to put on a good show for them, as well as my partners OMP Racing and Bell Helmets. All in all I'm pumped to be back and have full confidence that together with BHA, we will be a force to be reckoned with come race day."

Nicknamed "The Viking," he began racing at the age of three. Krohn climbed the karting ladder in Europe, culminating with a win in the North-European Karting Championship. He then made the step into European Formula Ford in 2007, finishing second in the championship. He's been racing in the U.S. since 2008, earning the championship and being named Rookie of the Year in the F2000 Championship Series. Krohn competed in the Star Mazda Championship for two years, before stepping into a Firestone Indy Lights car in 2011.

Founded by veteran driver Bryan Herta and noted race engineer and team manager Steve Newey, Bryan Herta Autosport has been a race-winning team in Firestone Indy Lights competition since 2009, and recently won the 2011 Indianapolis 500 with driver Dan Wheldon in only its second IZOD IndyCar Series start.

The Firestone Indy Lights Freedom 100 will take place on Friday's Carb Day (May 25) at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Pre-race activities start at 12:15 p.m. ET with the green flag dropping at 12:30 p.m.
