Looks like JR Hildebrand is back with CFH. Very Happy

The 500 entry list is starting to form. I've heard several personal sources tell me that Tagliani will be with KV, Bell will be with DRR, Mann will be back with Coyne, and Briscoe may be with SPM. All still rumors though.

This article talks about a few of these a bit more: http://www.racer.com/indycar/item/115191-indycar-99th-indy-500-approaching-33-cars

Bryan Herta Autosport with Curb Agajanian is withdrawing its #97 car (which they had already hired Jay Howard to drive) after the car's sponsor, Green1 Energy, didn't actually pay the Herta Autosport team. It should probably be noted that this is the second time in as many years that BHA has been short changed by a sponsor. Jay Howard is looking for another ride, but Herta is not looking for another driver or sponsor for the No. 97 entry.

Bell officially back at Indy with DRR/Kingdom Racing. Good to see. Article also says that Daly is the favorite for the Schmidt/Peterson third ride as well. I'd really like to see that come to fruition.



Here's where the entry list is at right now. Coyne's said that Dracone will not be at Indy reports say that Huertas may not be either. This would potentially leave two of the three Coyne cars open. (Mann is in the third again) Buddy Lazier's position right now is unclear because no one knows for sure if he has this year's chassis. KV Racing supposedly wanted a 4th car, but got shot down from Chevy because they had already reached their manufacturer limit for the month. (Tagliani was the rumored dirver) So, this puts all of the pressure for remaining entries on Honda. I am hearing Foyt is interested in a third car possibly driven by Katherine Legge. I'll believe that one when I see it though. This leaves the potential for one bump.

Right now, I count 31 entries for sure, that including Lazier who is all but confirmed. Chevy and Honda have both said that, as it stands right now, they have no interest in running more than 17 cars, which means that Chevy's lineup would be completed with Lazier. That leaves just three Honda on the grid. Two of the belong to Dale Coyne, who said that his team will run three cars this year, one of which will be driven by Pippa Mann. The other unfilled Honda entry is rumored to be run by A.J. Foyt Enterprises, with Alex Tagliani being the lead candidate the last I've heard. As for other potential drivers for the Coyne cars, the list is possible candidates for the #18 and #19 cars is down to about six or seven drivers. Francesco Dracone will not be at Indy, and there is a rumor that Carlos Huertas may have parted ways with Coyne after being replaced for two weeks straight. Huertas still remains a contender for the ride. Also on the list are Katherine Legge, Ryan Briscoe, and James Davison, who have all run Indy before. There's also a chance Ryan Phinny could make his IndyCar debut in the 500. Finally, the rumor that has come out of left field is that John Andretti may come out of retirement to run this year's 500.

The Grand Prix of Boston expected to be announced for next season, it might also be the finale venue.

That's LA. Boston traffic isn't that bad.

And if you don't think I'm gonna be there, you're sorely mistaken. Very Happy
