On the heels of the announcement that they've moved their funding from Katherine Legge to Sebastian Saavedra, TrueCar has announced that it has also cut backing to USF2000 driver Shannon McIntosh. They've also supposedly lowered their backing of IMSA GT3 Challenge driver Ashley Freiberg and Pirelli World Challenge TC driver Shea Holbrook.

This now brings up an interesting question: Did TrueCar cut their motorsport budget for 2013, or did they need to pay a lot more for Saavedra's ride at Dragon than they did Legge? The latter is certainly possible, as the team's budget has likely increased for 2013, with two Chevrolet engine contracts in place of the two Lotus contracts (and later one Chevrolet contract) in 2012.
