Finally, the story...officially.

Remember, you read it here first.

Actually, you read it here first.

UPDATE: The story and accompanying picture mention Patrick joining Kannan and Marco - that's it. It also mentions AGR's plans to field four cars in 2007, and they "currently" feature Herta and Franchitti. We know the Invisible Man is gone, but anyone want to take a guess as to Mr Judd's future?

Are they waiting for Mr Judd to commit to IRL or ALMS?
Is Mr Judd being replaced as well?
If Mr Judd is gone, who is replacing him?

Oh, more drama than 30 seconds with Jack Arute.

UPDATE II: Curt Cavin of the Indianapolis Star reports AGR is indeed waiting out Mr Judd's decision. Maybe Franchitti wants to be a drama queen like Danica! has been this month.

UPDATE III: Cavin has added some quotes from Bobby Rahal to the story.

“We’re just going to have to prove to her that she’s made a mistake. We’re going to have to beat her.”

Well, you can't beat her if you are in a different series. That sounds like an answer to the earlier question, meaning that wacky Canadian writer will have to find a new Champ Car rumor to start.

Also, So Damn Indy takes issue with Rahal's words. I guess Bobby wasn't the source for his big story a few days back.

    I can die happy now. I just hope she got a 5-year deal so we can not go through this spazzing out again for a long time. Let me be the first to say: "Bobby. You got an open seat. Sarah Fisher. Bobbbbyyyyy. Come on, Bobster. Throw the dog a bone."

    I thought you wanted Big Jamie Little in the car.
