Former CART boss Andrew Craig has ruled out returning to U.S. open-wheel management as part of the ongoing IndyCar organization reshuffle.
A report in the Indianapolis Business Journal last week identified Craig as one of a number of potential targets for IndyCar and Indianapolis 500 owner Hulman & Company as it restructured following the departure of CEO Randy Bernard. Others named by the IBJ included Just Marketing boss Zak Brown, American Le Mans Series President Scott Atherton, former NASCAR Chief Operating Officer George Pyne and former Jaguar Managing Director Mike O'Driscoll.
However, while Craig said that while he saw "great potential" in IndyCar at present, he would not be interested in returning.
"It is always nice to be considered but I would not be interested in going back," Craig told AUTOSPORT.
Craig was chairman and CEO of the CART IndyCar World Series from 1994 to 2000. He is currently a vice president of the FIA Touring Car Commission and a member of the FIA Endurance Racing Commission.
