Speaking following the announcement, Andretti said:
I’m looking forward to getting back to Watkins Glen and sports cars. I know John really loved driving with family, so I am happy Jarett and I can continue that part for him.”
Marco’s father and team owner Michael Andretti said:
I’m so proud to see Jarett and Marco coming together to co-drive at Watkins Glen. Racing has always been a family affair for us, but it was especially important to John, and it’s been a goal of ours to get them in a car together. I’m just glad that this opportunity worked out for Marco to come onboard for the first endurance race of the season.
