Bryan Herta Autosport Selected As Team Of The Year By Racer Magazine

Racer magazine selected Bryan Herta Autosport as its Team of the Year in its annual Editor’s Choice Awards.khts_sports

Dan Wheldon won the Indianapolis 500 driving for Bryan Herta Autosport. It was only the second Izod IndyCar Series start for Bryan Herta Autosport, owned by Valencia’s Bryan Herta.

Wheldon took the lead on the final lap of the race when JR Hildebrand crashed in the turn 4 wall. It was the second career Indy 500 win for Wheldon.

He was the unlikely winner of the race that included teams owned by Roger Penske, Michael Andretti and Chip Ganassi. Even Herta was surprised Wheldon won the race.

“Can you believe that? I mean, we came here to win and we kept saying ‘We’re here to win’ but…we actually won!” Herta told ABC after the race.

Wheldon returned to Bryan Herta Autosport for the IndyCar Series season finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and died in a multi-car crash in the early laps of the race.

Bryan Herta Autosport was in the running with Red Bull Racing and its Formula One team for the Racer Magazine Team of the Year.

The Indianapolis 500 was also selected as the race of the year by Racer magazine.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
