October 20, 2013 — Fontana, California — Zach Veach, who earned his first Sunoco Pole Award in the Lefty’s Kids Club 100 at Auto Club Speedway, will compete in a second Indy Lights season with Andretti Autosport in 2014.
Veach joined Andretti Autosport in 2010 and competed for two seasons in the USF2000 National Championship. He competed in the Pro Mazda Championship in 2012 and moved to Indy Lights in 2013.
“I’m very thankful to be able to say I’m getting to run in Indy Lights next season again with Andretti Autosport carrying the Replay XD colors into 2014,” he said. “My rookie season this year has taught me a tremendous amount on what it takes to run up front and I think we were able to start showing some of that here this weekend at Fontana.
“Next year we will be going for the Indy Lights championship with knowledge on how to succeed.”
Entering the season finale, Veach had posted five top-five finishes, with a best of third at Milwaukee in mid-June.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Zach and RePlay XD back with us for 2014 Indy Lights,” said JR Thormann, COO of Andretti Autosport. “Zach has been with us since his first year in USF2000 and has been a strong and reliable driver. We look forward to watching him continue on his goal of reaching the IndyCar Series.”
