Rossi, Hunter-Reay, Looking To Play Spoilers This Weekend at Sonoma

Sonoma, Calif – 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?

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…
