Sage Karam made his debut in the IndyCar Series at the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 in April 2014. He also raced in four of the 2014 TUDOR SportsCar Championship (Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen, Indianapolis).
Karam also was a part of the No. 01 Ford EcoBoost/Target Riley Prototype’s run at the 2015 Rolex 24 at Dayton alongside series veteran and current F Performance Racing teammate, Scott Pruett.
Before his career in the IndyCar Series and TUDOR SportsCar Championship, Karam started all 12 races of the 2013 Indy Lights series, winning three times on his way to claiming the 2013 Indy Lights Championship, making him the eighth driver to claim the title in their rookie season, as well as becoming the youngest Indy Lights Champion in history at 18 years old.
At age 15, he won the 2010 USF2000 Series Championship as well as the Rookie of the Year award. He entered the Star Mazda series in 2011, winning Rookie of the Year and then going on to finish third in the standings in 2012.
Karam is also the first driver to compete in all levels of the Mazda Road to Indy program, where he became the only driver to win races at each level. Prior to that he was the youngest winner of the Skip Barber scholarship, where he also became the youngest (13) winner ever in the Skip Barber shootout.
Besides racing, he is an avid fan of wrestling and football. Sage is the son of Jody and Karen Karam and has a sister, Sydnee, 18, a Division I swimmer at West Virginia University.
