Enders will receive technical support from Ford Racing and will begin the season in the same car she drove when she filled in for Cunningham earlier this year at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals, according to a press release.
"After personally seeing Erica's incredible fan base and how she conducted herself with the fans and in the car at Indy, we asked her to drive for Jim next year, and she agreed to race with us," said Cunningham Motorsports crew chief Marcus Bowen. "She did an outstanding job driving our car and produced four outstanding runs. We are pleased to have her driving the car and marketing Cunningham Motorsports and Ford."
Enders, 25, is already the most successful female racer in class history with the most races entered, most final-round showings, most low-qualifier awards, and most round-wins.
