AGR reveals Petit, Laguna line-up.

Andretti Green Racing has finalised the driving line-up of the #26 XM Radio Acura for the remainder of the 2008 American Le Mans Series season.

Franck Montagny will be joined at the wheel of the LMP2 car by IndyCar Series pairing Tony Kanaan and Marco Andretti for the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, with Kanaan then returning for the final round of the season at Laguna Seca.

The Petit Le Mans will mark Kanaan's first ALMS outing of the season while Andretti will be returning to the car for the third time this season. He took part in the Sebring 12 Hours, where the Acura was forced out by a mechanical issue, and then took part in the Lime Rock race alongside former F1 man Montagny.

Briton James Rossiter had driven the car in recent races, helping Montagny to secure the overall victory last time out at Belle Isle, but has now been replaced for the final two races of the campaign.

"We're happy with the line-ups we've set for these last two events," team co-owner Michael Andretti said. "Franck, Tony and Marco are going to be very compatible teammates and should work very well together. They all give very good feedback and know what we need out of the XM Radio Acura to stay up front.

"Winning at Detroit was something we felt was long overdue for us. Now we need to capitalise on that momentum and finish out the 2008 season as strong as possible."
