An­dretti pre­pares for fi­nal IndyCar event of sea­son

The Morning Call - - SPORTS -

Nazareth’s Marco An­dretti heads into the fi­nal IndyCar event of the sea­son — at the Fire­stone Grand Prix of Mon­terey at La­guna Seca (3:15 pm Sun­day) — in 16th place out of 36 driv­ers in the cham­pi­onship points stand­ings.

An­dretti’s top fin­ish this sea­son was sev­enth at Road Amer­i­can mid-sea­son.

“The end of our sea­son has been much stronger than the re­sults have shown and head­ing into the sea­son fi­nale, a dou­ble­points race, it’s re­ally im­por­tant to my­self and the U.S. Con­crete team to end 2019 on a high note,” said An­dretti, who drives the No. 98 U.S. Con­crete car for An­dretti Herta Au­tosport, in a re­lease from the league.

“We had a de­cent test at La­guna Seca ear­lier in the year and the track holds a lot of my fam­ily his­tory. It’s an iconic venue and it’s one of [Bryan] Herta’s best tracks from his ca­reer, so I have the right guy in my cor­ner this week­end.”

An­other Nazareth na­tive, Sage Karam, is in 27th in the league stand­ings.

An­dretti team mem­bers Alexan­der Rossi and Ryan Hun­terReay are in sec­ond and sev­enth in the stand­ings.
