Wait, something is very wrong with this Richard Petty pic

What the heck's going on here? Is Richard Petty finally making the jump into open-wheel? Is he going to take on the Vegas $5 million challenge? Is the cowboy hat now permissible headgear in IndyCar?

No, no and no. This is a photo op from Monday morning as Andretti Autosport, Richard Petty Motorsports and Window World will once again run John Andretti in the Indy 500 later this spring. Andretti has 11 Indy starts. Last year, he finished 30th of 33 cars after a wreck on lap 62. Ah, well ... there's always this year.
