Scott Pruett competed in the IndyCar series since 1988. In 1994 he joined Patrick Racing as a test driver for Firestone tires. Patrick formed a testing team for Fireston, and spearheaded Firestone’s return to Indycar racing for 1995. They did not enter any races in 1994, and instead tested all year. The same year, Pruett also won the IMSA 24 Hours at Daytona, and also won a second Trans-Am Series championship. For the next 4 years, Pruett continued driving Indy Cars for Patrick Racing and usually made the top ten in the series championship. In 1995 he was in contention for the Indy 500 until crashing late with 18 to go, although soon he won his first CART race at the Michigan 500 by beating Al Unser Jr by .56 seconds. Pruett finished the season 7th with 112 points.
