Indy Lights winner Norman to test Andretti Autosport IndyCar

Norman, currently fifth in the championship in his third Lights season with Michael Andretti’s team, heads to Road America’s double-header this weekend seeking his second career win, and will then head to his home track.

The 21-year-old from Aurora, Ohio, said: “I’ve been waiting my whole life for this moment. I can’t thank Andretti Autosport enough for this opportunity.

“This is a step in the right direction in my career and we will use this test and the rest of the Indy Lights season to prove I belong in an Indy car seat next year. Time to go to work!”

Said Andretti: “We’re very happy to be able to give Ryan this opportunity. The Road to Indy prides itself on developing young drivers into the talented, experienced drivers that succeed in the next level of their career – and helping that driver growth is an important goal of our team’s program.

“Ryan has been a contender at many races and has shown his ability and excitement to take the next step. We are happy to help build the bridge for him to continue his career and chase his dream.”  

Norman’s first win came last year on Gateway’s oval, although he fell only 0.067sec short of beating teammate Oliver Askew to the checkered flag at this year’s Freedom 100 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
