Penske confirms Allmendinger Indy 500 entry

Before Friday's announcement, there had been speculation that Penske was about to unveil an even bigger involvement in the 2013 IndyCar season for Allmendinger than just the Indianapolis 500 and one warm-up event, and there's peculation that should the Indy campaign go well and the sponsorship money come together then Allmendinger could be back for more races later in the season.

At the Friday news conference, Penske Racing president Tim Cindric even agreed that it was the team's goal to undertake additional races with Allmendinger, but that they were not in a position to announce any more than the Barber and Indy outings at this point.

"Right now we've got two races for IZOD," said Cindric. "It's our goal to put together more races."
