INDIANAPOLIS — Third-generation racer Jarett Andretti will race a sprint car this season, which will be fielded out of the Andretti Autosport shops in Indianapolis.
Joining Andretti this season will be Superior Auto, the car sales company that specializes in in-housing financing. The company has locations all over Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. This aligns perfectly with Andretti’s plan for a diverse schedule of events and class of cars in 2013.
Jarett, grandson of Aldo and son of John Andretti, will plan to spend the majority of his time in the Superior Auto sprint car, racing at various tracks throughout Indiana including Gas City I-69 Speedway, Bloomington Speedway, Lincoln Park Speedway, Lawrenceburg Speedway and Kokomo Speedway.
In addition, Andretti has plans to race a supermodified both on the East and West Coasts as well as possible opportunities in a NASCAR-style modified and asphalt late models. Also joining the young Andretti this year will be Window World, Boomerang Bay and Stoops Freightliner.
“I am very appreciative to have so many people backing our racing effort this year, especially Superior Auto,” said Andretti. “I look forward to representing Superior Auto on and off the racetrack and hope to put them in Victory Lane. This year’s schedule will allow me to become more diverse at many different tracks and I’m really excited to get started.”
Andretti Autosport is the IndyCar team owned by Andretti’s cousin Michael.
“It’s also going to be helpful to have the resources and knowledge of everyone at Andretti Autosport,” said Jarett. “They are not only family to me, but also one of the premier open wheel race organizations. I enjoy spending time with Michael and Marco and I couldn’t think of a better place to be.”
