Argent Mortgage will be a "major associate sponsor" for two cars owned by Andretti Green Racing, including the one being driven by Danica Patrick.The move apparently ends Argent's relationship with Ms. Patrick's former team, Rahal Letterman Racing, where it had been the primary sponsor of her car and that of former Indianapolis 500 winner Buddy Rice. The other car of which Argent will be the major associate sponsor is driven by Marco Andretti (son of team co-owner Michael Andretti), who in his first-ever Indianapolis 500 last May finished a very close second to Sam Hornish. "Danica and Marco are two of the most talented young drivers in racing and two of the sport's most recognizable names," said Argent president Sam Marzouk. "Bringing them together under the Argent banner creates an unbeatable combination to highlight our brand." The new primary sponsor for Ms. Patrick is Motorola, according to the Andretti Green website.
