Andersen Racing adds co-owner, engineers

Dominic and Nicholas Cape have joined to the staff of Andersen Racing's Indy Pro Series entry for 2007, team owner Dan Andersen announced on Dec. 26.

Andersen also announced his brother John, a veteran race official and his long-time business partner, has become co-owner of the racing team.

John Andersen, who was most recently director of race operations for the Cooper Tires Formula Ford 2000 series, will serve as team manager for the effort while Dominic and Nicholas Cape will be chief engineer and chief mechanic, respectively.

"I've known the Capes for over 15 years," Dan Andersen said. "They fielded cars in the Formula Ford 2000 series when I was the administrator of it, and I've also raced against them as a team owner. They have had a great deal of success in the sport, including running J.R. Hildebrand this year when he dominated the Cooper Tires F2000 series. John has also worked with them closely for the last five years, and we both think they'll be great assets to Andersen Racing."
