Andretti Global announced today that the multi-time INDY NXT championship team has formed a technical partnership with Cape Motorsports entering the 2024 INDY NXT by Firestone season.
The newly formed Andretti Cape INDY NXT alliance will see Cape Motorsports receive engineering and operational support from Andretti, building on the successful model between Andretti INDYCAR and Meyer Shank Racing.
Cape Motorsports, a Brownsburg, Indiana-based racing team founded by brothers Dominic and Nicholas Cape in 2001, ran two entries in the 2023 INDY NXT season, have won 14 USF2000 Championship titles and have seen success in sports car racing, earning the IMSA Prototype Challenge championship title in 2006. The Andretti Cape INDY NXT alliance will aim to add to Andretti’s five INDY NXT championship titles dating back to 2005.
The Andretti Cape INDY NXT team will officially kick off the season on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, March 8-10.
