Father Knows Best: Bryan Herta To Call Race Strategy in 2021 for Speedy Son

With Marco Andretti focusing on the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge this season, veteran race strategist Bryan Herta didn’t have an assignment for the other NTT INDYCAR SERIES events in 2021. Bryan has always been a hands-off father when it came to his son’s racing career. “I don’t think he’s ever heard me talk on the radio before,” Colton said.

Colton’s instinct to want Bryan as his strategist is another sign of how savvy the youngest race winner in INDYCAR history is – he turns 21 on March 30. “Obviously, neither of us would do it if we didn’t think we could do it,” Bryan said. Said Colton: “I think you can tell by now that we’re both pretty mellow.”.
