Veach Signs Multi-Year Deal With Andretti Autosport

The Verizon IndyCar Series silly season is playing out exactly as we predicted. The recent domino has fallen, this time with Zach Veach. He will be in the series on a full-time basis not just for 2018, but for the future as well, as the Ohio native has signed a multiyear deal with Andretti Autosport. Sources have confirmed this move and said it will be formally announced on Friday at Sonoma Raceway. To be fair, Andretti Autosport won’t comment on it yet, but several sources in the know confirmed the…

Why I Think Number/Personnel Changes Possible With Andretti Autosport

Normally, I don’t like to speculate on silly season material, as I just wait until I have something concrete before posting anything. But, after getting a lot of questions on this topic on top of reading between the lines on some things, I decided to post why we could see some personnel/number changes with a few drivers at Andretti Autosport. First off, we now know the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series driver lineup with the team. Three of their four drivers return (Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Marco Andretti) while Zach…

Alexander Rossi Hoping To Capitalize On End Of Season Strength This Weekend at Sonoma

The Verizon IndyCar Series season finale is already upon us, and one driver is hoping to play spoiler in this weekend’s Go Pro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma (6:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network). Although Alexander Rossi is still mathematically eligible to win this year’s 2017 championship this weekend at the Sonoma Raceway, he knows that realistically, a title is honestly a very tall feat to ask for. Rossi, is currently sixth in the standings heading to the last race of the season and 84 points out. Unfortunately, once the race…

Andretti Autosport Ending 2017 IndyCar Season on a High Note

For much of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season, Andretti Autosport wasn’t very happy. Other than the Indianapolis 500, the first 10 races to the season were ho-hum. But, over the last six races, they’ve really begun to build a lot of momentum heading towards the 2018 season. Take Alexander Rossi for example. Through the first 10 races of the year, the California native led just 23 laps and had just two top five finishes and five top 10s. Since?

Honda’s Strong Showing This Weekend in Watkins Glen

Watkins Glen, NY – We all thought this weekend would be Chevrolet dominated once again. Really, it was supposed to be Team Penske vs. Chip Ganassi Racing. After all, the two storied organizations have combined to lead all but three total laps in the four other natural road course races this season, including taking all four wins. With them having the entire top five of the points standings right now, it was clear that it was game on between these two teams this weekend at Watkins Glen. But, Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing and…

Teammates Crucial In Alexander Rossi’s Decision To Remain With Andretti Autosport

Watkins Glen, NY – After the Indianapolis 500 last May, I wrote about how worried I was that Alexander Rossi would use this monumental ‘500 victory to gain a seat in Formula One. After all, he was left without an F1 ride early in 2016 and back to the United States he came. With an Indy 500 win now, I thought this could propel him back to Europe. Instead, not he’s now showing that he’s not going anywhere any time soon. Rossi, inked a “multi-year” extension with Andretti Autosport earlier this…

Alexander Rossi Signs Multiyear Extension With Andretti Autosport

Watkins Glen, NY – The dominoes that Michael Andretti knocked off his desk earlier this week in a promotional video for announcing that his team Andretti Autosport will remain with Honda for the foreseeable future must have fallen pretty quickly. First, we learned Andretti would be staying with the manufacturer that they joined in 2014. Secondly, we learned that Takuma Sato would be leaving the team to join Rahal/Letterman/Lanigan Racing next season. Then, we learned Alexander Rossi would now be staying with the team after all. Not only would he be…
