Shaw would discipline Goodyear and Cheever.

There would be absolutely no nonsense tolerated under the watch of headmaster Jeremy Shaw.

"We're reaching out to any manufacturer that has interest in IndyCar," he told AUTOSPORT.
And who would IndyCar be talking to? Which manufacturers have any interest?

Ford would the most obvious manufacturer, I'd think. They haven't denied any interest in IndyCar, at least.

BMW, Ferrari, Audi and VW group don't seem like the right fit, although you never know.

Porsche tried in the 80s and failed miserably. Sorry, Teo.

If it's basic enough engine there's no real reason why any manufacturer couldn't have a go. A manufacturer winning the Indianapolis 500 will appeal.

Like all these problems, it all goes back to the dismal ratings. Alright the 500 even in its diminished state will always command a certain audience share. Commissioning an engine for an entire season though, is an ask but if noone is watching throughout the season then it all seems kinda pointless.

TK to Ganassi for next year.

Looks like multi-car super teams is the trend for next year.

I thought it was Penske who brought Chevy back in to IndyCar.

Sure, but will Mr Penske want what everyone else has got? Traditionally this hasnt been the case.

The Ganassi signing makes Honda's 2014 roster look a little light now...

Penske switches to Castroneves because Castroneves is ready clinch the title. Power is out of it. Beyond that, I wouldn't read too much into it.
