2021 Ryan Hunter-Reay Signed Race Used Andretti Autosport Indy 500 Gloves
The Indy 500 used gloves are signed by Ryan Hunter-Reay in black marker. The OMP gloves are in his, now classic, red and yellow colors. His logo is on the backs of the gloves, three of the fingers have the names of his sons on them and the cuffs have his number 28 as well as sponsor Autonation. The gloves come direct from Hunter-Reay and are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Ryan Hunter-Reay, who often gets referred to as “Captain America,” was the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ winningest active U.S.-born driver — with 18 career series wins — until Josef Newgarden passed him during the 2021 season.
Hunter-Reay completed his 17th season in 2021, and is best known for winning the 2012 INDYCAR championship and the 2014 Indianapolis 500. His title-capturing season included a personal-best four wins while the 500 victory featured the classic late-race duel with Helio Castroneves that saw them finish 0.060 seconds apart, the second-closest separation in event history.
Hunter-Reay’s INDYCAR career began in 2003 in Champ Car when he drove for Stefan Johansson. They won the street race in Surfers Paradise, Australia. The next year, Hunter-Reay went flag to flag for the oval victory at the Milwaukee Mile in a car owned by Keith Wiggins.
Hunter-Reay’s INDYCAR SERIES break came in 2007 when he joined the organization owned by Bobby Rahal and David Letterman. The popular Floridian driver drove for Tony George’s Vision Racing and A.J. Foyt Racing before becoming part of the dominant Andretti Autosport in 2010. Hunter-Reay’s victory in Long Beach that year helped propelled him into a full-time ride with Michael Andretti’s team that went through the 2021 season, a remarkably productive run to be sure.
Hunter-Reay also has made quite the name for himself in sports cars, driving for different manufacturers over the years in IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
