Andretti Expands Role in No. 98 Entry

-

Veteran IndyCar Series pilot Marco Andretti has become a supporting partner on his No. 98 Honda which will carry U.S. Concrete sponsorship and be entered under “Andretti Herta Autosport w/ Marco Andretti & Curb-Agajanian” in 2019.

At 31 years old, Andretti has earned two race victories during 13 seasons in North America’s premier open-wheel championship — one at Sonoma Raceway during his rookie campaign in 2006 and another at Iowa Speedway in 2011.

In 2018, the son of team owner Michael Andretti stormed to the Race 1 pole during the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit weekend to start first for his first time since 2013. Additionally, Andretti finished within the top 10 of the championship standings for his ninth season this year.

“I’m proud to see Marco looking beyond the racing seat and taking a vested interest in not just his car entry but the future of motor sport that can one day take him beyond his driving career,” said team owner Michael.

“Marco has many driving years ahead of him and many victories yet to come but is continuing to see the big picture of racing and that will in turn make him a stronger competitor all around.”

Andretti’s trio of American teammates Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Zach Veach contended for the championship, claimed race victories and impressed in their rookie seasons, respectively, placing increased performance pressure on the driver whose last name appears in the team’s name.

Intentionally different

Apexes and braking points are a racetrack's slowest features, but they're also rife with overtaking opportunity. With no ads and an intense focus on quality, The Apex and The Braking Point podcast are just as unique.

Being unique can come at a cost, but we don't see it that way. With the value-for-value model, a partnership between The Apex and its readers can be formed — something far more valuable than ad revenue.
