James Hinchcliffe will return to Andretti Autosport for the final three races of the season to fill the seat left vacant this week by Zach Veach. Hinchcliffe ran three races earlier this year for Andretti, where he drove three seasons from 2012 through 2014. ''It's always unfortunate to have to change drivers this far into a season, but we have to look at finishing the year the best we can for the 26 team and start evaluating and looking at options for 2021,'' said team owner Michael Andretti.
