Rossiter To Join Montagny in Andretti Green's XM Acura at Road America, Mosport

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 1, 2008) - Andretti Green Racing (AGR) announced today it has signed James Rossiter as co-driver of the XM Satellite Radio Acura for upcoming American Le Mans Series stops at Road America and Mosport International Raceway.

Rossiter will be paired with Franck Montagny at the next two series events. Montagny joined Andretti Green's ALMS program last month as the primary driver of the XM Acura.

James Rossiter, #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura:
"I'm really looking forward to driving the XM Acura for Andretti Green Racing in the ALMS and in the United States. I'm looking forward to the new challenge as well as racing with Franck (Montagny). I really just want to enter into this with the goal of learning as much as possible. AGR has a great history as a great team, so hopefully we can do some great things together."

Michael Andretti, co-owner, Andretti Green Racing:
"We feel very good about adding James to our lineup for at least these next two events. He's a promising, young talent and we're looking forward to seeing what he can do here. During the past couple of events, the XM Acura has shown the necessary speed to contend for the podium and we just need a couple breaks to go our way."
