Hunter-Reay Returns To Glen

Ryan Hunter-Reay has confirmed on his Twitter account that he will be competing for Andretti Autosport in the Camping World Grand Prix of the Glen on July 4:

Also thrilled to get the news I'll be racing at the Glen! Not many details yet, at least I know I'll be driving.Thx Michael! @FollowAndretti

Hunter-Reay's first IZOD IndyCar Series win came at Watkins Glen in 2008, when he held off Darren Manning for the victory. Hunter-Reay currently sits seventh in series points, with one win, coming at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Hunter-Reay's car carried sponsorship from IZOD in the first handful of races this season. The American ethanol industry, Hunter-Reay's sponsor at the Glen when he won two years ago, backed the team at Iowa. Other companies to appear on the car thus far this year include IES, Snapple, and Virgin Mobile.

The announcement also confirms that Adam Carroll will be a teammate of, and not a replacement for, Hunter-Reay in an Andretti Autosport car. Carroll will drive the No. 27 Boost Mobile Dallara-Honda in a limited schedule from Watkins Glen onward.
