It’s Andretti Autosport from Now-on

According to ‘Ye Blogosphere the AGR name change has occurred and is now officially known as Andretti Autosport, thus making way for the requisite announcements of the Danistar’s (Princess to AA) and Ryan “The IZOD Dude” Hunter-Reay’s impending arrival to be declared; tuh-Duh!

Yet according to Jeffie of My Name is IRL, Mikey debated long ‘N hard over possible name replacements… As apparently Disney’s price was too high for Lady ‘N the Tramp… While other names pondered included:

Three Men and a Little Lady
(If Only We Were Just A Little Bit Faster At) Racing- Bunnies & Rainbows Motorsports
The White Collar Comedy Tour
The Anthony Fedele Motor Militia
Team Meeting

Although I’d have preferred Mikey to go with my personal favourite; Michael Andretti Racing Systems or MARS! (Where I’m guessing TK may feel like this year’s season was spent upon?) Oh What a Feeling, Err Never Mind!

Meanwhile on a somewhat “Ha-Ha” more serious note, AA has announced that Tom Anderson, formerly of Fernandez Racing will join its operation as its Senior VP of Racing Operations, along with a few other Management announcements. As many will know that the wily Anderson was a Ganassi mainstay during its “4-Peat” in CART from 1996-99, when the “Cheepster” won the title four years in-a-row along with leading a Top Seven places sweep of the 2000 Indy 500 which saw Juan Pablo Montoya win the race on his first attempt…

As for news upon Monday’s RALLY-RALLY-RALLY BIG! Princess Press Release you’ll need to search elsewhere among the bloggaratzi; as I for one am way MORE impressed with the news of Sarah fisher’s 2nd Annual food Drive, while apparently Daniker is busy selecting beanie’s for her long ballyhooed CAB debut…
