BEGINNER'S MANUAL: The AP's Mike Harris reported Richard Petty Motorsports co-Owner Richard Petty "will make his first foray into the Indianapolis 500 as an owner when he fields a car for John Andretti in next month's race." Andretti drove for the now-defunct Petty Enterprises NASCAR team from '98-'03. Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, which runs the full IndyCar Series, "will work with Petty at Indy, providing equipment and personnel" (AP, 4/4).
