INDIANAPOLIS -- Frank Montagny has been hired to drive a fifth car for Andretti Green Racing later this month.

The Frenchman will be in the cockpit of the No. 25 car at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

He made seven starts for Michael Andretti's team in the American Le Mans Series last year and now will join Andretti's IndyCar regulars -- Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti, former series points winner Tony Kanaan and Hideki Mutoh.

Montagny also made seven starts in 2006 in Formula One and helped Andretti's sports-car team win at Belle Isle last year.
