After joining forces with Andretti Autosport, a team owned by Michael Andretti, in the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season, Bryan Herta Autosport will continue to be a part of Andretti Autosport through at least the 2017 season, as the two teams have extended their partnership with one another.

Alexander Rossi (pictured), the driver of Bryan Herta’s car, a car that is one of four full-time cars in the entire Andretti team, won this year’s Indianapolis 500 over Andretti Autosport teammate Carlos Munoz after saving enough fuel to make it to the end of the race, while Munoz, who had enough fuel to easily make it to the end of the race, was charging hard towards the front when Rossi took the checkered flag.

It is unknown whether Rossi will be back in Herta’s car, or if he well be in one of Andretti’s cars, since it has been made public knowledge that Marco Andretti, who has driven for his father Michael’s team in each of his 11 seasons in IndyCar, may need a change of scenery after an awful 2016 season, and a switch to Herta’s car may best suit him. Either way, Andretti and Herta will be continuing their partnership that was an overall success this past season through this upcoming season.
