Andretti Autosport inks multiyear extension with Honda

Andretti has captured three series championships with Honda—in 2004, 2005 and 2007—as well as Indianapolis 500 victories in 2005, 2007, 2014, 2016 and 2017. Since its inception in 2003, Andretti has captured 56 IndyCar Series victories, 47 under Honda power.
