(AP) — Marco Andretti will not run the full IndyCar schedule this season as the third-generation driver reprioritizes his racing career.

Andretti will compete in the Indianapolis 500 and assist Andretti Autosport with preseason testing and development. He will be in a car next week testing in Sebring, Florida. Beyond that, his schedule is open.

Marco Andretti has two career victories in 15 seasons with his last win in 2011.

He won the pole for last year’s Indianapolis 500 but didn’t lead a lap and finished 13th. He was 20th in the final season standings, lowest of all full-time IndyCar drivers.
