Bryan Herta Autosport rose to prominence after winning the 2011 Indianapolis 500 with driver Dan Wheldon. Five years later, BHA partnered with Andretti Autosport, and defied the odds again, winning their second Indianapolis 500 with rookie driver Alexander Rossi.
BHA entered the Global Rallycross Championship in 2015 under the name Bryan Herta Rallysport, scoring multiple podiums and wins.
In 2018, BHA entered the Pirelli World Challenge in partnership with Hyundai and dominated the TCR class, winning seven races with drivers Michael Lewis and Mark Wilkins in the Hyundai i30N TCR, securing the team and manufacturers championships in the process.
In 2019, BHA continued its successful partnership with Andretti Autosport, fielding the No.98 U.S. Concrete Honda with Curb Agajanian in the IndyCar series for Marco Andretti.
BHA also made its IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge debut, campaigning the Hyundai Veloster N TCR and swept the 2019 Driver and Team championships. Drivers Mark Wilkins and Michael Lewis finished first in the No.98 Hyundai Veloster N TCR and Harry Gottsacker and Mason Filippi finished second in the No.21 Hyundai Veloster N TCR.
