2018 IndyCar Series Rookie Standout Zach Veach Is Featured Speaker at Oct. 26 “Fuel Up Fridays” for IMS Museum Members

2018 IndyCar Series rookie Zach Veach will be the featured guest on Oct. 26 for “Fuel Up Fridays,” 8-9 a.m. (ET) at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.

“Fuel Up Fridays” is an IMS Museum members-only opportunity to get to know IMS and IndyCar Series personalities in an intimate setting, through a one-hour question-and-answer session hosted by IMS Historian Donald Davidson in the Museum’s Gallery.

Complimentary coffee, donuts and pastries will be available when doors open at 8 a.m., and the program will get underway at 8:15.

Veach, one of the IndyCar Series’ rising stars, is a native of the small southern Ohio town of Stockdale. He competed as a rookie in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series driving the No. 26 Group One Thousand One Dallara/Honda/Firestone entry for Andretti Autosport.

Veach displayed remarkable consistency and pace, finishing all 17 IndyCar Series events while posting five top-10 finishes, and narrowly missed the podium at the prestigious Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach by finishing a career-best fourth.

He made his IndyCar Series debut at Barber Motorsports Park in 2017, driving for Ed Carpenter Racing, and finished 26th for A.J. Foyt Racing at the 2017 Indianapolis 500.

As with many accomplished IndyCar Series road racers, Veach started racing at age 12, in go-karts, earning championships in Ohio and Indiana before moving through the IndyCar ladder system with Andretti Autosport, first in the USF2000 Championship and then Indy Lights, where he collected numerous victories and pole positions.
