Ovals aren't everyone's cup of tea, likewise so are street/road coarses. Ed Carpenter only races on ovals.

Colton Herta will join Andretti Autosport with Steinbrenner backing, in 2020.

Surprise news to no one, it seems like little Georgie thought Indy car money would be easy to come by and the Steinbrenner name was worth something. Andretti is smart enough to know he needs to keep Colton in the fold.

And Sato is coming back at RLL. https://racer.com/2019/09/21/rll-con...turn-for-2020/

Was Sato ever not staying with RLL, for 2020?

They held the option for 2020 and hadn't renewed until this weekend.

If the option was open, who else did they have in mind?

The option was to renew him or not and let his contract lapse. I didn't see the terms but it could have saved them money but his backing by Honda has to help make that decision easier. They could have potentially tried for someone coming up with backing and cash but he has won twice and a couple poles. But it's only for 2020 so after next year they can look again, although not many changes likely unless someone leaves F1 with money to burn.

The Indy Lights field is getting sparse and the winner's bonus doesn't pay a full season. Askew won the bonus this afternoon but he's with Andretti in Lights, I'd expect him to run the 3 races with them. Maybe more if they can stretch the money and funding. Veekay won the race but couldn't quite catch Askew, another year in Lights seems out if the question but where he goes up to is also a question. If he could bring money, and he's supposedly connected to money sponsors, then the rumored third RLL seat could be a starting point, or have given Bobby a bit to think about before bringing Sato back. All in all with Rossi and Herta set it seems like silly season will be more about the cars and testing the aeroscreen than drivers.

Is Veekay still being lined up for ECR road course races for 2020?

Newly crowned IndyCar Champion Josef Newgarden, ran 6 demo laps on Charlotte's Roval. Could the Charlotte Roval be added to the IndyCar calendar? The Indy Racing League competed at the Charlotte Motor Speedway oval from 1997 to 1999.

I'm thinking it's more to get interest in a crossover event. The insurance for Charlotte was rumored to be INSANE after they killed a spectator the last time out. And they haven't changed much in the catch fencing since so
