According to this Racer article from June, Grosjean will race at World Wide Technology Raceway, (Gateway), last paragraph.

Will Power joined Penske in 2009. 2010 and 2011 were two of his best years, getting 5 wins and 9 podiums and 6 wins and 9 podiums, respectively and finishing runner up in both years.

Wow, that’s something. Grosjean must really miss F1 if he’s now prepared to do ovals. He certainly seems to be desperate to race anything right now. I do miss him in F1, but there just weren’t enough seats for him

I'm not too sure how racing on ovals is about missing F1. This is to do with racing a full season in IndyCar next year, if he wants a serious shot at the driver's championship.

Will Power got podiums at Barber and Road America. He's not even the worst ranked Penske driver.



RHR's best result was 10th at Texas, and Hinch's was 14th.

I don't think they would replace pagenaud. They would drop to 3 cars, like they did a few years ago after dropping Montoya and castroneves into sportscars. In a couple years when power is up for another contract, then they may need a third, but by then the options will be different. Maybe herta would jump from andretti if andretti isnt up to championship level. I guess by that point veekay would still be a young option, too.

I really just hope they surprise me and keep pagenaud for a couple more years, see if he can go for one more championship, then shift him over to sports cars, since I can pull for him there too, haha.

It’s a tricky situation for them. I wouldn’t want to be in Penske’s situation. They got rid of Montoya and Castroneves when they decided they weren’t needed anymore. Would they still need Pagenaud? Is he what they need, very good driver he is. Not sure about Herta, would he want to leave Andretti? I would like to see him in F1 personally, but that’s another story.

It also depends what Pagenaud wants to do. If he’s still enjoying it, then it’s up to him. He could decide he needs a new challenge.

Yay, I guess?

Rumored it will include more races on NBC and likely USA covering the races after NBCSN is shut down. Sounded like Doonan stated IMSA will be staying with them as well on the race coverage this weekend at Lime Rock. Wonder if they will be sent over to CNBC to provide weekend product instead of infomercials?

Penske is choosing exposure over money.

Confirmed the TV package will be Peacock streaming for all races including 2 exclusively on the service, USA will air the races not taken for NBC. Indy Lights will remain on Peacock, as well as practice and quali sessions.

I don't think that Peacock is available in Canada. Hopefully TSN or SN will broadcast.

During the long break between Mid-Ohio and Nashville, IndyCar have been testing at Laguna Seca, which was red flagged due to the number of squirrel fatalities as they ran across the track, particularly at Turn 11.
