"Andretti Autosport thanks Randy Bernard for his tireless efforts during his term as CEO of INDYCAR. In recent months, others have spoken on our behalf and until now Andretti Autosport has refrained from comment, but we believe now is an appropriate time to address our company's position regarding the leadership of INDYCAR.
Randy worked hard to further the Series; we are grateful for his time with the sport and we wish him well in his future endeavors. We supported Randy just as we will continue to support the new administration. We believe that the board of directors of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation, IMS President and CEO Jeff Belskus and the Hulman-George family will make the right decisions that leverage the many strengths of INDYCAR for the benefit of the fans, teams, drivers, promoters and sponsors."
