Wheldon Confirmed At Panther For 2010

After weeks of speculation that the Dan Wheldon was on his way out of Panther Racing, today they confirmed that the 2005 Indianapolis 500 Champion will return for a second season. It was widely reported that both Wheldon and Panther Racing were unhappy with the way things were going and that they would part ways fallowing the season Finale in Miami.

It's unclear as to if the National Guard will return for a 3rd season with panther, but they say a sponsorship announcement should be made in the coming weeks.

"What I can tell you is that we’re going to be fighting tooth and nail to improve. We’ve got a group here that we really like, and I’ve made clear in the last two weeks what my expectations are for our team and driver." -John Barnes

"I’m excited for next season, honestly. Anytime I’m out of a racecar for too long I get restless. But I feel like we made some progress towards the end of the season after some struggles that show we’re heading in the right direction.

My goals are to win races. Obviously we haven’t achieved everything we wanted for the season, so for next year I’d like to build on the momentum that we’ve created this year and make it a winning season." -Dan Wheldon
