INDIANAPOLIS — Zach Veach will drive fulltime for Andretti Autosport next season as part of an all-American lineup for the team.

Veach will drive the No. 26 Honda as the fourth entry for Andretti. Takuma Sato won the Indianapolis 500 in that car this season.

Veach will join Ryan Hunter-Reay, Alexander Rossi and Marco Andretti on the team.

Veach has raced in every step of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder with Andretti Autosport. He finished a career-best third in the Indy Lights championship race in 2014.

He made his IndyCar Series debut this year at Barber Motorsport Park and his Indy 500 debut in May.
