Munoz Changing Numbers as Well

(via MotorSportsTalk)

The 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year will go back to the number he raced with in Indy Lights and the number he raced to a runner-up finish in his IndyCar debut at the 2013 Indianapolis 500.

Carlos Munoz will shift from No. 34 to 26 for the 2015 season, which creates a continuous flow of numerology at Andretti Autosport for its three confirmed cars thus far.

Last week, Marco Andretti posted “#27in15″ as he moved from 25 to 27. Munoz had been 34 last year, owing to a relationship with 34 Solutions, a company co-chaired by All American football legend Herschel Walker. 

Munoz tweeted out the pic of his change earlier this week, and made his return to the number in Tuesday’s Sebring test.

Now, Munoz is 26, Andretti is 27 and Ryan Hunter-Reay carries his usual No. 28.

It opens up the No. 25 for a fourth car in 2015, of which there has been much discussion but nothing yet finalized.
