The IndyCar Series may not have the high-profile drivers that its Formula 1 rivals do, but the racing series does have one thing that F1 will likely never have: the coolest driver’s name in racing history.
On Wednesday, Dale Coyne Racing and Rick Ware Racing announced the signing of Sting Ray Robb as their final driver for the 2023 IndyCar Series. Robb has had a successful second season at the Indy Lights circuit, finishing second overall with one win and eight podiums from 14 races.
But while Robb is more than qualified to compete in the IndyCar Series, fans just can’t get over what a cool name he has. And yes, it’s his real, legal name and not just a nickname.
The wider sporting world is practically delighted to have such a great name and some believe the name alone is a reason to cheer him on this year.
Sting Ray Robb has raced since he was a child and has been a professional at several major circuits including the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.
However, Robb found his niche on the Indy circuit, winning the 2020 Indy Pro 2000 Championship title and moving up to Indy Lights the following year.
Now he can compete on the largest open wheel circuit in America.
Maybe the whole world will get to know the name Sting Ray Robb soon.
