Andretti Autosport Firestone Indy Lights driver Zach Veach has been named a finalist by Larry King's producers to be interviewed on the legendary television and radio host's talk show, Larry King Now.
"Larry King is such a big name in the world of interviewers and I can't image the opportunity to sit across the desk from him and talk about my racing career and efforts against distracted driving and bullying prevention," said Veach. "I always enjoy talking to journalists and sharing my story and encouraging others to pursue their dreams too."
"In my submission, I told Larry that we couldn't be more different except our willingness to help others," continued Veach, who would be just the second racecar driver interviewed on the program following Danica Patrick. "I mean, I'm a racecar driver, and he's a television host. He's like 80 and I'm not even 20 but I've seen how giving he has been and I'd love to share with him how lucky and humbled I feel to be where I'm at."
Veach returned for his fourth season with Andretti Autosport this year, moving up with K12 to the Firestone Indy Lights Series for 2013, the final stepping-stone to a future career in the IZOD IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500.
