Hinchcliffe to run final 3 IndyCar races with Andretti

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.

Bourdais to return to IndyCar with full-time Foyt ride

Sebastien Bourdais will return to IndyCar with A.J. Foyt Racing in a full-time job for 2021 that begins with the final three races of this season. Bourdais, a four-time champion, had been scheduled to split the No. 14 at Foyt this season with both Tony Kanaan and rookie Dalton Kellett. The schedule was decimated by the pandemic so Bourdais, who was supposed to drive the first three races of the season, has yet to turn a lap in competition.
