The results of former Haas center-table rival like Dale Coyne have piqued the interest of Andretti Autosport owner Michael Andretti, who has now decided to give him the seat vacated by Ryan Hunter-Reay for the 2022 season.
“We are delighted to welcome Roman into the Andretti Autosport family,” said Michael Andretti, CEO and President of Andretti Autosport. “He already had an impressive resume before he moved on and seeing what he was able to do in the junior season here was exciting.”
