The Faces of Andretti Autosport – Roland Kirby

Position on the team: Truck driver of the No. 28 car

Hometown: Wapakoneta, OH

Family: I have two daughters – Emily and Haley

How did you get your start in racing? I have grown up around racing from a young age. When I was little, we had some family friends that owned their own racing team. I started to help them, and then one thing led to another.  

What do you do when the team is at the track? When we’re at the track, I help with tires on Ryan Hunter-Reay’s car and I’m also the inside front tire changer on Sebastian Saavedra’s car when he is running.

How long have you been working in racing? I have been in racing for 15 years. I have been with Andretti Autosport for two years and was with Rahal Letterman Racing prior to that.

What is your favorite racing memory? One of my favorite memories is winning the 2004 Indianapolis 500 with Buddy Rice.

On a side note, I’m a huge Michigan fan. Go Blue!
