Ryan Hunter-Reay

Birth Date: 17 December 1980 Home Town: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Nationality: American Web: www.ryanracing.com

Ryan Hunter-Reay sealed the 2012 IndyCar Series championship with a dramatic late run to glory in the final race of the season.

The most successful American driver currently racing in open-wheel competition, Hunter-Reay has nine IndyCar wins and is the only driver to have taken victories in IndyCar, CART, Champ Car, ALMS and GrandAm.

Hunter-Reay enjoyed a mighty 2012 including a run of three straight wins, yet he still trailed Australia’s Will Power by 36 points with two races left. The American duly won in Baltimore to reduce the gap. Then in the Fontana finale Power crashed out before briefly returning to the track to ensure Hunter-Reay needed to finish in 5th place or higher. After a frantic, nail-biting final six-lap shootout, he brought his Andretti Autosport car home in 4th to become the first home-grown champion in a unified IndyCar series since 1994.

A passionate advocate of the fight against cancer, Hunter-Reay races with the number #28 in recognition of the estimated 28 million cancer sufferers around the world. He will make his Race Of Champions debut in Bangkok in 2012.
