        Nothing against Saavedra, but I sort of hope it isn't him. That whole walkaway from BHA in Indy Lights a few weeks ago had me scratching my head.

        If it is him, ok, then.

          If not Saavedra then Beatriz is my guess. IMO no matter who it is, PT would have been a better choice.

                Doesn't matter if its PT, Savaadra, or Bia.
                Heck, even Jesus can't win an oval race with DRR package.
                Its no more than part of the background scenery for the red cars to lap.

                    Yep, the USAC guys should just show up at Indy Car races and start knocking on doors, work the paddock and introduce themselves in order to try to get a ride in Indy Car...

                    Some have said this

                    Except for a very select few, this is a ride buying series.

                    Lower the cost of what it takes to run Indy Car in order to bring back the smaller teams and owners, like the original IRL was...then the kind of crap that happened to PT won't be happening "as much" and we will get some of the best American short track talent racing at Indy again

                      Man that's deep. Such is the economy in auto racing. It's more prevalent and talked about in IndyCar racing, but it's not alot different in NASCAR or anywhere else right down to the short tracks.

                      Every time I hear someone wanting to put IndyCar down because it's a ride buying series I think of guys like Bryan Clauson and Tim McCreadie. They were two short track dirt guys that were on their way to Stewart/Gordon/Kahne/Newman-like NASCAR success until the funding ran out. Clausen with Ganassi and McCreadie with Childress.

                        First of all, it sounded like PT had some money to bring, just not as much as someone else. Sounds like Reinbold Rent-A-Car to me. Lame.

                          last time I checked indycar was an international series with races around the world. there are countries and people from outside the usa. even nascar has international drivers. welcome to 2010 its not 1977 anymore

                            As a fan, I do not like, appreciate, or want musical cockpits. Boo on DRR.

                              At least Tracy is a foreigner that has been heard of.
