    I'll bet Meira will find a seat somewhere if he's not back at Rahal.

      You must have missed the memo. Lots of folks around here now want him gone from the league...

        Depressing, ain't it? He ONLY finished 2nd at Indianapolis...

            Well, I don't think that Marco Andretti is anywhere near ready to be in the IndyCar Series, and why would Wheldon move from a race-winning team like Andretti-Green to a team that has struggled like Rahal-Letterman?

              I could give you a few millions reasons why Wheldon would leave AGR...

              Marco can get 'r done on the road courses...needs more time on the ovals though.

                23 f/t cars with a potential for 35-39 cars for Indy is fine for me.

                    What has occurred the last three years that would make you believe there might be 35-39 cars at Indy in 2006?

                    Remember the delusional part of the title



                    The scary thing about this list is there are 4-5 cars on it that are doubtful or pipe dreams at best.

                    Someone is going to need to step up big time to get to 20 full time rides next year. 23, maybe if 3-4 owners hit the powerball lottery between now and March

                        After the season Briscoe had, no way does Cheever sign him up? Well, unless he is paid by Toyota. While were at it, who is Max Young Motorsports?

                          I think he's talking about Matt Young Motorsports, which has something to do with Jon Herb's IPS ride.
