Michael Andretti will travel to the Milwaukee Mile as a team owner this weekend, hoping that his driver Ryan Hunter-Reay will repeat the team’s past success at the world’s oldest racetrack.

In a recent video on IndyCar’s YouTube channel, Andretti reflected on the legacy of the circuit and his fondness of it, having won at the speedway five times in the CART series.

He comes to the circuit this weekend with the knowledge that his driver, Hunter-Reay, can get the job done here. Hunter-Reay has won in IndyCar’s last two outings to this circuit and a win Sunday would be critical to his title chances, currently sitting 63 points back of points leader Will Power.
