Who kept giving Dennis Vitolo money to buy rides? I remeber the 34 was shared between a few drivers. When Coyne actually needed to do reasonably well he usually deputized Gualter Salles for the entry

De Ferran probably would have had a championship earlier if he wasn't stuck on the wrong tires between 1996-1999.

I would also like to know the answer to this.

I think I saw Diffey say on Twitter that he'd be doing IndyCar with a couple NASCAR races thrown in, so I'd take that to mean the full schedule.

I can't see what else he'd be doing because none of the other stuff he lists would conflict with IndyCar.

Yeah, it's incredibly arrogant to just assume people will line up to give you a ride. I assumed SHR were going to run her in at least Daytona but clearly that's not happening.

SHR is maxed out at 4 cars under the team cap and none of their drivers are rookies, so they can't field a fifth car for Daytona and put Danica in one of the first four. My thoughts around Ganassi included the fact they only have two full-time Cup cars (McMurray, Larson) and might be able to roll out a potentially competitive third car in a one-off if the price were right, while also putting her in a fast car in the month of May.

I don't know if she's pricing herself too high for two races (more a commentary on the overall market than Danica as this is allegedly part of why Matt Kenseth has no full-time Cup ride) or still thinks her name is enough to get her sponsorship and doesn't realize her stock is probably the lowest it's ever been though, again, I'm surprised she's in this spot as my thinking was that it was waiting to be announced.

wicka posted:

In her most recent quotes she said something regarding which “teams or team” she might sign with, implying she thinks Ganassi or Penske are still interested. Which is...odd.

If it's "team", it's Ganassi, because Penske was asked last year at Homestead and said it wasn't happening.

Chip's the type of dude who denies everything until the day the press announcement goes out. He doesn't normally tip his hand or leak poo poo to reporters, hence the surprise Ed Jones signing and stuff.

This was his quote from back in December:

quote:

"I was a little taken aback by how much was made of it," Ganassi said of the reaction to his discussions with the former IndyCar star. "Folks would like to see a lot of things. First and foremost, things like that have to make business sense to all the parties. I don't want to discourage the idea, but I think it's a small percentage of something happening. There's nothing imminent."

It's more of a mint green really, Petronas teal is much deeper/more vivid.

I really like that color scheme but the livery feels weirdly empty.

The best part of LeMans broadcasts was Lena getting angry at people 5 times her size in the Audi pits. That's a huge win for SSM and Hinchtown.

Sounds like Hinch is getting what he wanted to resign. More engineering help, more budget, better teammate (thats his buddy no less), manufacturer testing, etc. They are definitely putting together the pieces to try to consistently challenge for race-wins.
