Andretti Autosport To Expand Into NASCAR?

Posted By Michael J Smith On June 29, 2012 @ 1:48 pm In Cup | No Comments

Michael Andretti, owner of Andretti Autosport [1]Jayski [2] is reporting via PitPass.net [3] that Michael Andretti, owner of Andretti Autosport, has purchased the Dodge engine program from Penske Racing, and will field at least one Spring Cup Dodge in 2013.

Penske is switching from Dodge to Ford next season, and had to offload its engine program as it prepares to field Fords.

Matt Kenseth is rumored be a candidate for the ride, considering he recently announced he is leaving Roush Fenway Racing [4] at season’s end.

This is all rumors and speculation at this point, as nothing has been officially announced. An announcement could come as early as next week.
