Ana Beatriz retains Coyne seat for Iowa IndyCar round

Ana Beatriz will remain in the second Dale Coyne Racing entry for this weekend's IndyCar race at Iowa.
The Brazilian, who is one of the three drivers to have raced the car in 2013, was a late confirmation for last weekend's Milwaukee race, and her inclusion in the field for Iowa was revealed when her name appeared on the official entry list, which was released on Tuesday.
Beatriz has contested six races in the car so far this year, with a best result of 14th at Long Beach.
Mike Conway, whose availability is comprised by his sportscar commitments as well as his disinclination to race on ovals, took the car to a win and a podium in the double-header in Detroit, while Pippa Mann raced the car at Texas but dropped out early with an engine failure.
Panther Racing, the only other entrant on the grid without a permanent driver, confirmed several weeks ago that Oriol Servia will race its car at Iowa.
