Andretti Autosport adds Franck Montagny for Indianapolis road race

montagny

Franck Montagny will return to IndyCar after an extended absence next month to drive a fifth Andretti Autosport entry for the Indianapolis road course race.

The 36-year-old Frenchman, whose CV includes a handful of Formula 1 starts with Super Aguri in 2006 and four outright podiums at Le Mans with Pescarolo and Peugeot, will drive the team's #26 entry.

Montagny has previously raced with Andretti in both the American Le Mans Series and IndyCar, making a one-off appearance in the latter at Sonoma in 2009, and said that he is excited at the prospect of making his first start at the Brickyard.

"I am very happy to be back with Andretti Autosport," he said. "I have already felt at home during my visits."

"Participating in the Grand Prix of Indianapolis in the temple of motorsport that is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a true moment of happiness."

NASCAR star Kurt Busch has already been confirmed to drive Andretti's #26 car for the Indianapolis 500.
