Marco Andretti invests in his #98 Andretti Herta IndyCar entry

Marco Andretti has invested in his #98 IndyCar entry for next year, when it will officially be Andretti Herta Autosport w/ Marco Andretti & Curb-Agajanian.

Bryan Herta Autosport joined forces with Andretti Autosport to run the #98 car prior to the 2016 season, with Marco Andretti switching across from the #27 entry to replace Alexander Rossi at the start of 2018.

Andretti, who has raced for his father Michael’s team since entering IndyCar in 2006, said: “I’m happy and proud to invest back into the team that I have been with for 13 seasons and counting.

“I truly believe this is the best team out there and I’m looking forward to a fun, competitive future with the No. 98 family.”

Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti stated: “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 motorsport that can one day take him beyond his driving career.

“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 finished ninth in his first season driving the #98 entry this year, his best position in the IndyCar standings since 2015.
