INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Michael Andretti's driver lineup is locked and loaded for May.

He already had two race winners, two of IndyCar's rising stars and his own son, Marco, geared up. Now he's added 2016 Indianapolis 500 pole winner James Hinchcliffe to the roster.

Andretti Autosport's team owner announced Wednesday that Hinchcliffe will drive the No. 29 Honda for three races this season - the two in Indy and a June race at Texas Motor Speedway with the potential for more opportunities in the future.
