The plan will create 500 jobs by the end of 2026. It will include a 575,000-square-foot facility on 90 acres near the Nickle Plate Trail, Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve and Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport.
The site will serve multiple purposes including the base of operations for the team’s current NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Indy Lights and IMSA programs.
The facility is expected to be operational by 2025.
"This is going to be all about for the fans – you know, for the community," said Michael Andretti, team owner. "We are going to have a restaurant, an Italian restaurant. We are actually going to be doing food from the area where my dad was born and grew up, so that's going to be really cool."
It will also be home to the advanced research and development efforts of Andretti Technologies.
Other racing investments
In May 2021, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing ceremonially broke ground on a new headquarters in Zionsville.
The team currently has facilities for IndyCar and IMSA SportsCar racing in Brownsburg and Columbus, Ohio. The new 100,000 square foot building will bring about 100 employees under one roof.
