IZOD IndyCar Series multiple race winner James Hinchcliffe will return to the team that helped him with his first career victory. The reigning series champions, Andretti Autosport, confirmed Saturday that the Canadian fan favorite will pilot an Andretti Autosport Indy car for the 2014 IndyCar championship.

Hinchcliffe's No. 27 machine will don the colors of United Fiber & Data (UFD), a tech company, founded by three members of the multi-platinum rock band LIVE and their Think Loud Development company.

UFD will also serve as a major associate on the No. 25 and No. 28 cars piloted by Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay, respectively.

In addition, Andretti announced earlier in the day that the company will serve as the primary sponsor for Pro Mazda Champion Matthew Brabham as he transitions to Indy Lights in 2014.
