Robert Megennis will stay at Andretti Autosport for his second season in Indy Lights.

The 19-year-old took a race win, two poles and six podiums as a rookie with the team last year, and his fifth place in the points marked his most competitive season on the Road to Indy yet.

In two seasons in USF2000 he took one win, while his single Indy Pro 2000 season in 2018 before heading to Indy Lights resulted in fifth in the standings due to the late-season absence of Juncos Racing team-mate Carlos Cunha.

?I?m super excited to join Andretti Autosport for another year in Indy Lights,” said Megennis.

“We had a great 2019 season and 2020 will be even better. I?m confident that we?re only going to grow and get stronger together as a team. Let?s go win some races.?

Andretti has ran the last two series champions, who are now racing together as team-mates in IndyCar, and has already signed IP2000 champion and race-winner Kyle Kirkwood and Danial Frost alongside the returning Megennis to bolster its 2020 title chances.

?We?re thrilled to welcome Robert back to the team,? said Andretti president J-F Thormann.

?From the moment he climbed in the car, Robert has been determined to fight for results and it has paid off, earning a victory and a handful of podiums last season.

“He was a strong contender in the Freedom 100 and we?re happy he?ll have another chance to claim that title.

“We?re really looking forward to watching Robert mature even more in the car and anxious to see what results he can capture in 2020.?
