John Andretti is expected to be named as the driver of the fourth Earnhardt Ganassi Racing Chevy at the Daytona 500. No word on the car number or the sponsor.
Andretti will join EGR drivers, Martin Truex Jr., Juan Pablo Montoya, and Aric Almirola.
Andretti, who has one victory at the track, and is a two-time winner in Sprint Cup competition, has driven for Front Row Motorsports the last two seasons. In 2008, he made three starts for FRM, including last year’s Daytona 500. He finished 40th.
EGR is working on a technical alliance with Front Row Motorsports for Daytona and beyond.
