      Or.. a four-car all-American team.

        So long as TK is on another team kicking their tails, I'm all for it.

          I think SPEED and Miller will stay with each other.
          Insert something witty here. I don't care.

            Penske and Ganassi will be the dominant teams because they're the only well funded professional teams in the series.
            Andretti will run 4 cars again but 1 of the drivers will be a new face.
            Panther will have Wheldon again because the sponsor wants him.
            Kanaan will struggle to find ride, nevermind a ride that pays.
            Rahal will be back with his dad's newly re-formed team.
            Haas will, sadly, shut their doors.
            KV will continue to run the Team Lotus demolition team, most likely with 2 drivers plus a 3rd for Indy.
            Foyt will remain a 1 car deal for Meira
            HVM will be back with Simona and a 2nd pay driver.
            Conquest too.
            Dreyer will probably have Wilson and Conway back and are likely to run a 3rd car for most, or all, of the races.
            Coyne will keep Lloyd and try to find a 2nd driver. Don't be surprised if its Milka again!
            No idea what SFR will do but I'd bet on Sarah being at Indy.
            FAZZT will have Tag ( duh) and possibly Tracy but not sure if Tracy will be full time.
            That's all I know for now. Lets see how good my crystal ball was come March 2011! (pretty confident about Penske and Ganassi tho!)

              The 100th Anniversary of the first Indianapolis 500 will be major, major news on Memorial Day weekend. And every single article about it will mention something about the "split," compare it unfavorably to NASCAR, or suggest that it's future is grey at best. Perhaps all three. At least one headline will say "THE INDY 500: OUTDATED?"

              That said: Danica will win a hell of a race, beating Will Power and Tony Kanaan by .000231 of a second, and suddenly it'll be the most popular thing in the world.
              "I didn't hear a single comment about airboxes, "carbashians", or how terrible the car looked. I did see dozens and dozens of little kids in awe of the speed and how cool the cars looked. We should learn from our children."

                Penske Racing, as we know it now, will not exist at the end of 2011.
                Ganassi will become a 3 car team from Indy on with a driver that will ultimately replace Daio at the end of 2012.
                HVM will get simona 3 top 5's on road courses, but still struggle mightily on ovals
                AA will be a two car team with Marco and Danica running the entire season. Danica stays in the IICS after this season
                Panther will be a two car team: RHR full time and a split season between Carpenter (ovals only) and a paying road racer the rest of the time
                Foyt will languish in yet another under performing year with Miera full time and IV at Indy only
                KV will be a two car team with Sato and Moraes who's job it will be to diminish the current tub numbers to the point the 2012 car will become mandatory.
                Conquest will run two ride buyers
                Coybe will run one car since Milka money will not be back.
                D&R will be a three car team with Viso, Wilson and Conway
                ABC will surprise everyone with a new better contract through 2016.
                Announced in 2011, Verses will become NBC Sports America in 2012 and NBC will carry two races (one oval and one road course). Oval being Loudon and road course being Long Beach
                Robin Miller will be grand marshall of the Milwaukee race.
                Larry Curie will get bounced from D&R for "questionable" actions
                IZOD will create new commercials.

                        Shortly after the 2011 I500 the IMS announces it will no longer be involved with running a racing series. The league will be re-formed for 2012.
