"We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Katherine, but after 12 months of collaboration, hardwork, and TrueCar's sincere efforts to resurrect Katherine's openwheel career, TrueCar has decided to pursue a different driver for 2013 IndyCar season," said Painter.
"We've had to make some difficult choices this offseason, based on the goal of winning races and doing what is best our partners, sponsors, and team," said Jay Penske. "I adamantly believe with the experience of our crew, our engineers, drivers, and the tremendous support of our partners, we have a team in 2013 that can compete for the championship."
The Dragon Racing press release also tried for a conciliatory tone by wishing Legge all the best for the future.
“We are thankful for the contributions Katherine Legge has made during her time at Dragon Racing," said Woolnough. "We wish Katherine her the best in her future racing endeavours."
