St. Petersburg, Fla – Marco Andretti called the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season the most frustrating year of his career.

St. Petersburg, Fla – Juan Pablo Montoya was told last summer that Team Penske was going to be getting younger for the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season. They told the two-time Indianapolis 500 champion that they were going after Josef Newgarden as his replacement for next year.
