Earns Fourth Career Victory, with St. Pete Win, First on a Street Circuit

It was a quite a Sunday drive for second-generation racer Colton Herta, as he led a record-breaking 97 (of 100) laps in St. Pete on his way to his fourth career victory. Starting from the pole position, Herta made quick work of gapping the field and quietly slipped away, only to be slightly challenged during the closing stint before coming home with nearly a two-and-a-half second lead. Today’s win marks the first victory for the Gainbridge-backed IndyCar, complete with sponsor guests on site to help celebrate.

Andretti Autosport rode the momentum of success through the weekend as it captured pole positions in INDYCAR, Indy Lights and Formula E and went on to take wins across the three series. Andretti’s pursuit for wins and passion across many forms of Motorsport was reached worldwide this weekend.

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES now heads straight to Texas Motor Speedway for the final race of three-in-a-row to open the 2021 season. The Texas doubleheader kicks off Saturday, May 1.

“What a race! I’m so excited for the team, for Gainbridge, Honda and everybody involved. This is such a big win for my crew on a street circuit and another venue ticked off the list. I can’t wait to get to Texas and get it going again. We’ve had strong cars there in the past and ready to see what we bring this next weekend.”
