Though Hinchcliffe has lost his ride at SPAM, they are keeping the third seat open for fellow Canadian Wickens, as he continues to make his recovery.

Zak Brown is really starting to make a negative name for himself around the racing world. Taking McLaren to the back of the grid, not qualifying for Indy 500, ruining Autosport magazine by brokering the deal to motorsport dot con and now Hinch Town. Good job, dude!

There’s an article on autosport today where Honda are considering pulling out of indycar and IMSA in favour of nascar. Hope that’s just an idle threat.

It's interesting to note that since Andreas Seidl became Team Principal at McLaren, their F1 fortunes have vastly improved. Maybe if Zak Brown were to take a step back in other spheres of motorsport he's got himself involved with, their fortunes might also improve.

According to that article, http://classic.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/146931

"New NASCAR chassis rules for 2021 will be followed by an updated powertrain in either '22 or '23, with both moves aimed at slashing costs and attracting new manufacturers to join Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota."

So, if Honda do decide to quit both IndyCar and IMSA, it probably won't be until 2023 at the latest.

I still think it's odd that the F1 season is still ongoing and IndyCar's season has been in the books for over a month now already.

F1 doesn't have the elephant in the room for local sponsors of the NFL. F1 can also deal with a Nascar race across the state, Nascar and the promoter hate it but doubt it's really tough for them. Now more than Texas Motorspeedway has been for everyone to draw full crowds.

I'm seeing that IMS, Indycar have sold to the Penske Group. Press conference at 11am central.

Zak Brown explains why Hinchcliffe was dropped. Having read this, I believe it was Brown's idea and not Sam Schmidt or Ric Peterson's.

My wisdom has proven right yet again.

As I said in the past, the day would come when the majority of the Hulman Trust would simply want their cash out to do the things they want to do and today is the day!

So today we can rejoice that the evil empire is on it's way out and we can move forward into a new era of prosperity. I've not always agreed with Penske but at least he knows how to run a business.

Apart from buying IMS, it will be interesting to see what Roger Penske will do in terms of the IndyCar series.
