Michael Andretti takes Control

News from the Indianapolis Star today and what has been rumored for awhile, is that Michael Andretti had broken away from co-owners Kim Green and Kevin Savoree. This will mean that Andretti will be the full-time owner behind the soon to be non AGR Racing. Andretti has said the race team will be renamed and that he plans to retain a four-car lineup next year. The most amazing news out of Indianapolis is that Andretti is quoted as saying “Getting close” in reference to attempts to retain popular IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick. An announcement could come as early as next week, as her sponsor is based around Schaumburg, Ill.

Green and Savoree will focus strictly on race promotions at Toronto and St. Pete. They will have no direct influence on the race team.

Stay tuned!
