AGR preparing for Post-Danica era?

According to Will of Is it May yet? Andretti Green Racing will be running a fifth Dallara/Honda chassis for Frenchman Frank Montagny at this year’s final IRL road course race at Sonoma… Under the auspices of AFS Racing.

AFS/AGR currently campaign cars in the Firestone Indy Lights series for current points leader J.R. Hildebrand and second place Sebastian Saavedra, along with having won the 2008 Indy Lights Championship with Rafael Matos, so its safe to say that team owner Gary Peterson Has an interest in running with the “Big boyz” (Indy Car) in the future, which leads me to ponder if this is possibly a fact finding mission? Or perhaps the next step in Hildebrand’s future? As there certainly seem to be a plethora of drivers available if Princess does indeed decide to leave the team. Yet, I’d suggest that AGR might wish to consider simply concentrating on its current four drivers who’ve had less then stellar results this season…
