Jen PrestonSenior Analyst IJuly 15, 2008

ESPN just announced that it's analyst Brad Daugherty has officially bought into JTG Racing.

Bigger news?  The team has selected driver Marcos Ambrose to drive the team's Cup car in 2009.  No word on sponsorship or number, but I'm sure that'll come shortly.

In his Cup debut earlier this year, Ambrose finished a disappointing 42nd after running well and up front all day.  In his Nationwide career the Tasmania native has yet to score a win but has two top fives and nine total top tens.

We'll keep you posted on any more developments.
