Not the most interesting article on the new aero-kits but at the end of it, there is mention of a new chassis, which is expected to debut in 2021.

Not exactly IndyCar news but worth posting all the same, Helio Castroneves puts Penske on pole for the Petit Le Mans, IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship season finale.

He got tangled by a Ferrari GTD minutes after the race start. Still on the lead lap after 3:45.

The title of this Robin Miller story for Racer says it all: “Will Portland replace The Glen on IndyCar schedule?

Sample quote:

Quote:
"We've had two good races but it's been an uphill climb trying to make it work," said [Watkins Glen International president Michael] Printup, who is thought to have leased the legendary road course to IndyCar. "I don't think the dates help us any because July 4 and Labor Day don't seem to be good. I asked IndyCar about changing dates but there weren't any available."

It would be a shame to see the Glen go, so soon after its reappearance on the IndyCar calendar.

Back in 2016 Roger Penske said: "There are a lot of people in the north-west United States that like racing. Getting these tracks and date equity is so important", so Portland would be a welcome addition and it would be great to have both venues back on the calendar, though reading that article it doesn't sound likely.

Castroneves and fellow Penske team mates, Montoya and Pagenaud finished third. So congrats on their podium finish.

Newgarden and Power call for change in oval qualifying format.

I would like an oval qualifying format with groups of four drivers.

A McLaren partnership doesn't necessarily mean Alonso though. If they're battling for 3rd in the championship next year then they probably wouldn't want him to skip Monaco. This year would've made little difference.

Button's already said he's not interested. I guess they could go with Montoya, if there aren't still bad feelings and Penske would let him race for a Honda team? Otherwise, Turvey? No oval experience again.

Penske will be entering the Acura ARX-05 DPi, in next year's IMSA Sports Car Championship, so that could give Montoya the Honda link he needs, in order to drive for Andretti Autosport in next year's 500.
