Rossi Re-Signs With Andretti-Herta

Last week it was announced that the Andretti Autosport Bryan Herta combined entry will continue into the 2017 season. Today the team announced Alexander Rossi will return to pilot the Honda-powered car.

“What an incredible eight months this has been,” Alexander Rossi said, “from getting the opportunity to join the Verizon IndyCar Series in February, to winning the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 in May and now re-signing with Andretti Autosport. I am incredibly proud and grateful to be able to have the opportunity to work with a team of this caliber as we chase after more race wins and continue to make our mark in this amazing championship. I want to thank Michael [Andretti], JF [Thormann], Bryan [Herta] and Honda for the faith and trust they have in me to put the Andretti name at the front. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we are already completely focused on being back at the sharp end of the grid where we belong.” 

Rossi will run alongside returning teammates Ryan Hunter-Reay and Marco Andretti. The team's 4th entry is still being developed.
