"After nearly a year of planning in 2017, 2018 was really a process to get to that point of a multiyear forward plan," Sullivan said of Dale Coyne Racing's entry with Vasser Sullivan. "We had highlights and, above all, we proved that the new partnership worked. We all wanted that, and now we have a great platform to fight for the IndyCar Championship in the years to come. "
Coyne will see the transmission of the SealMaster brand as the main sponsor of Bourdais in the Honda race.
"I am delighted that Jimmy, Sulli and I have reached an agreement to extend our partnership and allow Sebastien to return," said Coyne, the American driver Santino Ferrucci has committed to drive the sister No. 19 Honda. "In this next phase of our partnership, the team will have some resources, equipment and resources at its disposal. I'm looking forward to building on what we started last year and taking it to the next level. "
Bourdais is central to the multi-year Vasser Sullivan deal, which provides security for the next decade.
"I am very happy that Dale, Jimmy and Sulli are moving forward together," he said. "The project that Dale and I started in 2017 will continue to evolve over the next two years with the support of many people and great sponsors. As we approach the start of the season, I look forward to seeing what we can achieve in the next two years! "
