Michael Andretti Thinking Indy Again

Now this is good news.

Over the weekend Indy Star and Yahoo Sports both revealed that Michael Andretti is all but announced his entry for the 2007 Indy 500. Buoyed by his third-place performance last year, Andretti 2.0 is looking to lock up sponsorship to help him get back at the brickyard.

Finding a sponsor for Michael’s car could be a problem since AGR already has acquired every possible sponsor on the earth…sorry, I thought I was Pressdog for a moment there. Seriously, given his connections and recent performance Michael should have his sponsorship deal settled by lunch.

As much as I would appreciate a victory by any driver, it would stand to reason the IRL will secretly be hoping that one of three AGR drivers will be guzzling milk at the conclusion of Indy 500 next year. The best possible news for the league would be a victory by either Marco, Michael or Danica!. Should any of those three drivers win that particular race then it would be front-page material for all sorts of publications – but you already know that.

Alright, I’m usually an impartial observer, but as I noted in May it’s no secret I’ll be cheering for those drivers at the brickyard.
