Pigot, Veach find full-time rides for '18 season

From ESPN - September 13, 2017

Spencer Pigot will move full time to the IndyCar Series next season for Ed Carpenter Racing, and Zach Veach will pick up the full slate for Andretti Autosport.

Pigot has spent the past two seasons as the road and street course driver for ECR. Next season he will get the full schedule and take over the No. 21 Chevrolet currently driven by J.R. Hildebrand.

All but four of Pigot's 21 IndyCar starts have been with ECR. He was the 2015 Indy Lights champion.

"It's nice to know that they believe in me and I can provide them with the results that they want," Pigot said, according to IndyCar's official website. "There's no other team I want to be with right now. I definitely enjoy working with ECR, and I was really hoping I would get to continue with this team."
