Andretti Autosport announced on Wednesday that they have signed Zach Veach to drive the No.26 Honda in the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2018.
Speaking about Zeach’s appointment, Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti commented by saying:
“We are excited to give Zach the opportunity to show what he can do at the highest level, and I’m looking forward to welcoming him home, so to speak. “Zach started his INDYCAR career with us in USF2000 and has driven in every step of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder with Andretti Autosport. He’s a driver that has always impressed me. Zach works hard, and he takes something away from every time he’s in the car – he’s constantly improving. He’s put the effort in, found success at every level and now his dream has come full circle.”
Zeach who will form an all-American line up joining Ryan Hunter Reay, Marco Andretti and Alexander Rossi commented by saying:
“I’ve been thinking about this day since St. Petersburg in 2010 when I sat beside Michael Andretti announcing that I’d be competing in USF2000 for his team.“To be driving in the Verizon IndyCar series with them is a dream come true and I can’t wait to get started.”
The 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season kicks off on March 11 with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
