Ryan Norman will return for a third season with Andretti Autosport’s Indy Lights program.
“I’m really excited to finally make it official that I’ll be returning to Andretti Autosport for my third season competing in Indy Lights,” he said. “We’ve built a solid foundation over the past two years and I’m ready to fight for wins, podiums and ultimately the championship, with such a great group of people who have become like a family to me.”
The 20-year-old Ohio native finished fourth in the 2018 Indy Lights championship, winning his first series race at Gateway and claiming four podiums and a pole at the Portland season finale.
“We’re very happy that Ryan is rejoining us for his third season of Indy Lights,” said Andretti Autosport president JF Thormann. “We were pleased with his performance this past season, and his potential as a driver began to really shine after his win at Gateway [Motorsports Park]. He’s right on track with his progression plan put together by his engineering team, and we feel strongly that he has what it takes to be a contender for the 2019 championship.”
Prior to making his Lights debut in 2017, Norman was a regular in the SCCA Pro Formula Atlantic Championship, with 10 wins in 2016 and a victory at the SCCA Runoffs in Formula Atlantic at age 18.
