Sarah Fisher has signed a driver and a business partner for the 2012 Izod IndyCar season. Fisher on Wednesday introduced Josef Newgarden as driver of her No. 67 entry next season. Newgarden won five races en route to the Firestone Indy Lights title last season. Fisher also said she has partnered with Kansas businessman Wink Hartman, and her team has been renamed Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing. She did not announce a schedule for Newgarden, but Fisher said she hopes to run the full season. Fisher also did not announce a sponsor or engine manufacturer. Ed Carpenter gave Fisher her first victory as a car owner in October at Kentucky, but she lost the driver and sponsor shortly after and has been working hard to rebuild the team since.
