Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Saturday that 2017 Indianapolis 500 winner Takuma Sato will remain with the team in the NTT IndyCar Series in 2020 alongside Grham Rahal.

Team co owner Bobby Rahal said:

“We have been very pleased with the results and level of competition Takuma has shown this season. “His two wins and two poles don’t fully indicate how competitive he has been overall this season and the fact that he was a contender at many other races.  He is an integral part of our team which I believe we have shown. This decision allows us to keep the continuity and continue to build upon our program for 2020.”

Sato who has two race wins so far in 2019 commented on the news saying:

“I am very happy to continue our path together again after this season. “Every single member of the team is extremely loyal and have given me unbelievable support. I truly feel at home here and I am so proud of the team. We have had another great season this year and even had some tough times but it only made our relationship stronger. I can’t thank Bobby, Mike, David and the entire team enough and I am looking forward to finishing the season strong and also looking forward to 2020.”
