Ryan Hunter-Reay is one hour away from entering the race of his life at Auto Club Speedway, where he'll look to defeat Will Power and claim his first IZOD IndyCar Series championship. But win or lose, one thing is certain -- he's sticking with Andretti Autosport.

The team has confirmed Hunter-Reay's signing of a two-year contract extension that will keep the American racer in the Andretti stable through 2014. Here are a pair of team-issued statements from Hunter-Reay and team owner Michael Andretti about the extension:

HUNTER-REAY

"I have a lot of deep rooted relationships with the team and the team sponsors and I'm looking forward to continuing and further developing those relationships. I'm happy to be able to enjoy the off season knowing what the next two years hold. I'm looking forward to my return with Andretti Autosport and hope to have the opportunity to speak more on it soon, but today we are focused on leaving Fontana tonight with a championship."

ANDRETTI

"We are happy to have Ryan [Hunter-Reay] back with us for the 2013 and 2014 IndyCar seasons. He is a tough competitor and has become an important part of our team. He is the ultimate team player and I know we can count on him, along with his teammates, to continue to be a foundation for us. We believe that he, Marco [Andretti[ and James [Hinchcliffe] will continue to work together and take the team to great places with great success.
