Sports Illustrated Magazine Names Veach A Face In The Crowd; Featured In Dec 17 Issue

Sports Illustrated magazine, the most respected voice in sports journalism with a weekly audience of nearly 21 million adults, will highlight Andretti Autosport Firestone Indy Lights driver Zach Veach as part of the publication’s “Faces in the Crowd” in the Dec. 17, 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

“Sports Illustrated is one of those magazines I’ve read since I was really young and to be featured in the pages of the magazine is just incredible,” said Veach. “I can’t thank SI enough for shining a spotlight on the sport of INDYCAR. My sponsor K12 has given me a huge opportunity in Firestone Indy Lights in 2013 as has Andretti Autosport and I take that very seriously. I can’t wait for the season to start!”

Founded in 1954, Sports Illustrated is a division of Time Inc., the world’s leading magazine publishing company and a subsidiary of Time Warner. The magazine’s profile piece on Veach is alongside five other standout amateur athletes.

“Faces in the Crowd” has been published every week in Sports Illustrated since 1956, with many of the athletes going on to land the magazine’s coveted cover and turning pro in their respective sports, including golfers Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie, among others.

Having just turned 18 on Dec. 9, Veach recently too was announced to Andretti Autosport’s lineup in Firestone Indy Lights and returned primary sponsor K12 to back the teen’s effort in the final step of INDYCAR’s “Mazda Road to Indy” for the 2013 racing season.

The young athlete’s move up to Indy Lights comes on the heels of Veach topping the speed charts and coming in under the track record during a special test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway earlier this year. For the 2012 racing season, Veach had nine top-10 finishes, three of which were top-five results including a runner-up finish on the Streets of Toronto in the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear. Prior to that, he won the 2012 Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear Winter Series championship, his second straight winter series championship.

His feature as a “Face in the Crowd” follows being named “Most Popular Driver” in 2012 in Star Mazda, which parallels winning the same popular driver award in USF2000 in 2011. Sports Illustrated joins the ranks of other national media outlets titling Veach with ESPN The Magazine naming him a NEXT athlete in motorsports and CNN adding him to their list of “Intriguing People.”

Veach’s feature in the magazine has athletes R.A. Dickey and Kayla Harrison gracing the brown-colored cover.
