INDIANAPOLIS – Andretti Autosport Short Track has announced that third generation driver Jarett Andretti will compete in full-time in the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series and USAC Silver Crown Series this season.
The AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series and USAC Silver Crown Series are among the most respected and prestigious in short track open wheel racing. The Andretti family’s deep tradition in both Sprint Car and Silver Crown series includes Jarett’s father John, Grandfather Aldo and great uncle Mario.
This will be Andretti’s first full season in both the USAC National Sprint Car and Silver Crown Series, bringing his schedule to over 50 races in 2014.
“Like all drivers, I think about the racing schedule that I may be doing coming into a new season,” said the 21-year-old driver .”Obviously, we all want to race as much as possible and this year, I could not have wished for a better lineup of races. I will be competing all the time in a variety of cars against the toughest competitors in short track racing in the country. I’m really looking forward to this year.”
Andretti, who raced in USAC part-time in 2013, will be driving the Superior Auto sprint car in all of the Midwest USAC races. His sprint car in each of his traveling USAC races will feature primary sponsorship from Window World, longtime supporter of both Jarett and his father John. Andretti will also pilot the No. 4 Window World Silver Crown car on pavement for Andretti Short Track and the No. 14 McQuinn Silver Crown car at all of the dirt track Silver Crown races.
Additional sponsorship for the 2014 season comes from Indy Trading Post, Schaeffer Oil, Stoops Freightliner, Excelda Manufacturing and AAA Roofing.
