Danica's New Ride

Recommended Posts

Danica unveiled her new ride for 2007 in Chicago yesterday. It's the Andretti Green Racing #7. Primary Sponsor - Motorola; Associate Sponsors - Argent Mortgage (she must have brought that one along with her), XM Satellite Radio and Go Daddy.com

 

 

(They must have liked Leilani's color scheme.)

Yeah, the announcers said during the race telecast Sunday that the team would be announcing the new sponsors on Tuesday, and they had already announced 21 million from Motorola. Not surprising that Argent came with her; I'd think they'd be pretty happy so far with the attention she's brought them. Who'd heard of Argent before Danica?

I think you can look for her to be in a much better car with Andretti-Green. By the way, have you heard why she was back in the Panoz two races ago?

No TQ, hadn't heard about the Panoz. What's up with that? On the other hand, guess it doesn't matter now.

 

Here's a question to ponder ......... IRL teams have gone almost exclusively to Dalllaras. On the other hand, Champ Car is or has gone exclusively to Panoz. There keeps being talk of the two rejoining each other. That's one very expensive difference they would have to resolve before a merger could be agreed on. Huh?

danica was in a panoz at infinion raceway in sonoma because some people feel that the panoz is a better short track / road course car for downforce.......both of the ganassi cars were using a panoz and all three rahal cars.

 

other teams may not have a panoz or dont think it is a big enough difference like us at aj foyt racing.

one more thing from the crew member point of view....... i was told by a very reliable source that in the event that panoz unveils the new champ car (which has now obviously happened) the merger deal is off untill atleast 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

nice job champ car instead of 2 series with 20 cars max we could have had one extremely competitive series with 10 oval races, 10 road course / street courses, and 3 short track ovals with 35 to 40 cars. That would have been pretty amazing!!!
