Some sources here. Ed Carpenter has stated his team will only field two cars in this year's field due to lack of available chassis due to Newgarden's Texas wreck last year. http://www.racer.com/indycar/item/139173-first-look-at-the-indy-500-grid?showall=&limitstart=

Zach Veach confirmed for the third Foyt car today: http://www.espn.com/racing/story/_/id/19104938/aj-foyt-racing-enter-zach-veach-indianapolis-500

UPDATE 2: Gabby Chaves and new Harding Racing Team confirmed. The group was the last company to help with repaving IMS. They will have a technical alliance with Dreyer and Reinbold Racing.

Jack Harvey, according to RACER, looks to be a solid favorite for the last Andretti ride.

I have added Fernando Alonso. As it's been covered pretty well in the other topic, I will not post a link this time.

Harvey will be in car #50, it looks as though Alonso will be in the #29 or #25.

Alonso will be in the 29

Also, Pastor Maldonado will likely be in the second Juncos car (though not confirmed) no numbers for Juncos have been confirmed either. Jeff Simmons and Tiago Monteiro are also two drivers that are rumored to be looking for rides as well. There are also rumors that Townsend Bell has retired (this one I heard is likely). Will Marotti is also looking for a car and driver, possibly to partner with someone again. Gustavo Yacaman is my guess for that seat if that team materializes once again.

Thanks! I'll change the numbers around to their actual numbers.

I've been keeping an eye on the Juncos situation and heard the Pastor Maldonado whispers as well. Jeff Simmons would be super random, but interesting. I've seen Saavedra attached to the ride with AFS money too. The team's Facebook page posted a status in Spanish stating they're looking for a bit more funding, so looks like we may have to wait a bit longer to receive any official news.

A little story I would like to share

Back in the 2013 Indianapolis 500, my dad was fueling James Jakes back when he worked at Rahal before Andretti. While Jakes was actually leading during a pace lap, he had to come in for a pit stop. Jakes actually hit my father coming into his stall. Thankfully, no injuries were sustained. Jakes then later had to come in for a penalty for the collision, and responded over his radio "Since when is there a penalty for hitting a crew member?".

Here is a video:


Also, Fernando Alonso will be driving the number 29. Andretti has stopped using the 25 after the death of Justin Wilson. Stefan Wilson has also said he is no longer in the ride hunt for Indy.

Actually Stefan Wilson will be back in the Andretti Car in 2018 to give Alonso a shot this year

Stefan Wilson was the guy to put Alonso in his car for this year's Indy 500. Stefan will be back in next year's Indy 500 for Andretti Autosport with help from Shank

I know that. I was just saying that Wilson said he is not driving at Indy this year. Also, not to be rude, but you kinda repeated yourself after you already replied to my original post.

Also, even though it doesn't go with the topic, Happy Easter everyone!
