A busy day for Danicamania...

As reported earlier today by So Damn Indy, Danica! is driving her last races for Bobby Rahal. Now Indianapolis TV Station WXIN is reporting Danica! will be moving to AGR for the 2007 season.

Note Mr Judd and Bryan Herta (the Invisible Man) have expiring contracts at the conclusion of this season. It kinda adds a nice subplot to Danica!'s blocking of Mr Judd this weekend.

El Nariz, Andretti 3.0 and Danica! - not too shabby, Michael.

It should also be of note that unlike Penske and Ganassi, AGR does NOT have a NASCAR team...Jack Roush should be pleased.

    Well, here's my take on the whole thing. AGR is planning an ALMS entry for Honda/Acura next year sponsored by XM Sat Radio who currently sponsors Bryan Herta in his IRL ride. Herta is known for his road racing abilities and he's just wasting his talent being the devolopment driver for AGR and never being given a chance to really race. If he moves out of his IRL slot, then hence the opening for Danica.

    Good catch. I read a report today mentioning that was the plan - moving Herta to the ALMS team.

    My curiosity would be if AGR continues with a fourth car. Knowing he probably won't go to one of the two superior teams, I'm not so sure they don't let Franchitti walk.
