The 2024 Indy 500, slated for May 26, will mark Sato’s 15th time participating in the race, and his sixth with RLL.

His Indycar highlights include wins in the 2017 and 2020 Indianapolis 500, 2013 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, 2018 Portland Grand Prix, 2019 Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama and Bommarito 500 at WWT Raceway, with four of the six coming with RLL.
