Andretti Autosport announced today that New York-native Robert Megennis will pilot the No. 27 entry for the championship-winning team’s 2019 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires campaign.
“We are thrilled to have Robert as part of the team,” said Andretti Autosport president J-F Thormann. “Last year the team showed great strength on-track collecting 14 wins and we have no doubt our 2019 line up will be just as strong. Through winter testing, Robert has shown great speed and potential and we can’t wait to see how that translates within the season.”

“I’m very excited to drive in Indy Lights in 2019 with Andretti Autosport,” said
“While I know Indy Lights will be a big jump up from Indy Pro 2000, I am confident that Andretti will give me a great car, and I am ready to get going. Thank you to Palo Alto Networks, Optiv, Sailpoint, CyberArk, and my family for this amazing opportunity.”
Megennis will join veteran driver Ryan Norman (No. 48 car) for the Indy Lights season opener in St. Petersburg, Florida. The season’s first event will host two races on the Streets of downtown St. Petersburg, one race on both Saturday and Sunday.
