Andretti reunites with Front Row for Daytona 500

Posted on: February 1, 2010 11:37 am
John Andretti , who drove for Front Row Motorsports in 2009, locking the No. 34 car into the top 35 for the first five races of the season, will be back in the car for the Daytona 500.

NASCAR would not approve rookie Kevin Conway to race in the Daytona 500, forcing Front Row to do a little driver juggling for the season opener.

Andretti will jump into the No. 34, while Travis Kvapil , who will be the primary driver of the 34 car the remainder of the season, is shifting to the 37 car, which is Conway's primary ride.

Front Row also has a third car, the No. 38, which will be driven by Robert Richardson Jr. at the first three restrictor-plate races of the season. David Gilliland is scheduled to drive a majority of the other races in the car.

At the moment, only the No. 34 car is locked into the 500 for Front Row, but the organization is still hoping to work out arrangements with other teams to transfer owner that would lock its other two cars into the race.
