Andretti Autosport announced today that they have signed a three-year extension with Ryan Hunter-Reay to continue to drive for the organization. AA also signed an agreement for DHL to remain the primary sponsor on the No. 28 for the next three years, as well.
“I’m thrilled to be able to announce today that the relationship between myself, DHL and Andretti Autosport will continue,” two-time ESPYS Best Driver award recipient Hunter-Reay said. “To think back on my career and how far it has come, I know that DHL and Andretti Autosport have been instrumental in great achievements. I’m happy to call both organizations family and proud of how we have grown together over the past years. DHL is an iconic international brand and I can’t thank them enough for not only their support in the team and myself, but also for their trust in me as a spokesperson and representative of their company.
“Every driver strives to find the stability in their career that allows them to continually grow each year; having a home at Andretti Autosport for the last five seasons, working with the same crew and supportive sponsors has no doubt been a key part of our successes. I look forward to all that is yet to come.”
DHL is the global market leader in the logistics industry.
”The speed, reliability and dedication exemplified by Andretti Autosport, Ryan Hunter-Reay and the DHL IndyCar team is truly an ideal fit for DHL and we are extremely pleased to continue our successful partnership,” Christine Nashick, Chief Customer Officer for DHL Express, said. “Since we teamed together in 2011, we’ve been able to successfully connect our global brand with the public and promote DHL as the International Specialists. We look forward to more spectacular years of racing with Andretti Autosport and Ryan.”
Hunter-Reay won the championship driving for AA in 2012 and has 14 wins and 18 top-10 finishes in 166 career IndyCar starts. The 33-year-old currently sits third in the standings, 63 points behind Will Power with three races to go.
“Together DHL and Ryan (Hunter-Reay) have won their first series championship and first Indy 500 and we couldn’t be happier to have both returning to the Andretti family,” team owner Michael Andretti. “Having a driver as dedicated as Ryan and a partner as supportive as DHL is what every IndyCar team strives to achieve. I’m happy to have shared the last few years with them and look forward to all of the success that will no doubt be in our future together.”
