Site to document Petty's first Indy 500 entry
Driver John Andretti will chronicle the progression of Richard Petty's first entry in the Indianapolis 500 this month on a Web site dedicated to the team and its sponsor, Window World.
Petty-Andretti.com will serve as the host for daily video blogs by Andretti and other team members as they prepare for the Indy 500 later this month. Petty, co-owner of Richard Petty Motorsports with George Gillett and Ray Evernham, will enter a No. 43 IndyCar Series car into the 500 as partners with Dreyer and Reinbold Racing.
Racersites.com, which runs the official team Web sites for Penske Racing and Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing, among others, plans to launch the new Petty-Andretti site this week. Window World is headlining the site with the phrase, "Your window to Indy."
"The idea is to give the fans an insider perspective on what's happening with this team, with John, and with Richard Petty coming to the Indy 500 for the first time," said Chuck Tate, president of Racersites.com. "The key is the insider access. We don't have a schedule, we don't have a bio of John. It's not the traditional driver site or team site. It's a perspective from John that's designed to engage the fans."
