BOISE, Idaho — Sting Ray Robb has been a racer since he was five-years-old, this week the Payette native secured the last slot in the 27-driver field in the most elite Indy Car racing series in the country.

21-year-old Sting Ray will join Dale Coyne Racing and partner with second-year driver David Malukas to make the youngest team in the sport.

"It's a dream come true, I'm living out my five-year-old little kid dream being in Indy car and I'm looking forward to this season."

A crowd of family and friends showed up at the airport to welcome Sting Ray back to Idaho for a weekend before he gets to work preparing for the upcoming season, first in line to receive a hug was Sting Ray's mother Kimmie.

"Literally it has been a life long dream, to be able to attain that dream and it is reality now," said Kimmie Serrano. "For a mom that has been on this incredible journey, it has been so special to watch, I’m trying not to cry."

The last time we checked in with Sting Ray he won the Indy Pro Circuit in 2020, the next season he made the move to the Indy Lights Circuit, the equivalent of moving from AA to AAA in baseball and now he's in the major leagues.
