Answered my own question (thanks bjohnsonsmith for the link to the article). Per IndyCar, nothing confirmed for the Carlin #31 car as yet, and they note that Nasr is confirmed for the full IMSA schedule.

I am still not used to seeing those aeroscreens!

Good testing report, and i was surprised to see McLaughlin up so high in the scoring.

Also didn't realize that the Shank car is going to be doing a full season for the first time. That is great news for Harvey.

Yes indeed. That makes 23 full time entries confirmed (unless my counting is faulty, which is possible). Pretty solid, especially given all the doom and gloom talk about IndyCar over the last several years. Plus the usual slate of part-time (Dragonspeed? McLaughlin, etc.), 500-only entries, and possible late entrants (e.g. #31 Carlin if it comes to pass).

There are going to be some changes to the Indy 500, including a $2million prize fund, as well as changes to qualifying.

The speedway is working outside of the actual track property to improve Speedway as well and the fan walk to the track. He's also added multiple big name sponsors but no information about how they're working with Indy, Pennzoil, Verizon, Snap-On Tools, DEX Imaging,*Road and Track*magazine and Global Medical Response.

The 2 million is added to the Winner's Circle purse though so it won't help one off teams at first report. Hopefully that will change and be spread across the field. Clausen made less finishing 16th than it cost to run the month according to the team. It seems like the math is off a bit as well, they released a 125k per full season team additional but that's 2.75 million not 2.

Looks like Andretti will be running Hinchcliffe after Honda vetoed the Alonso deal.

Well The Mayor will be in town for the month of May now, and Texas.

Article rumors he was ready to sign with RLL and it fell through on his end. But it appears Alonso may return to the McLaren fold and run the 500 with SPAM

Dreyer and Reinbold have confirmed Sage Karam for four races including Toronto. That makes 24 at Toronto, which is beyond the 23 pit boxes in the article someone posted above. Plus there's still the slight possibility of another Carlin entry I suppose.

NBC Sports are to show 8 races on NBC, the rest will be on NBC Sports Network. If you scroll down there's a grid with all the races, relevant channels and start times. Unfortunately Long Beach won't be aired on NBC.

Looks like Dick Johnson might let Scott McLaughlin go and race in IndyCar full time, as soon as next year.

I wonder, with Scotty M's inevitable move to IndyCar full time in '21, could this lead the organization to getting their a$$ in gear by finding a proper broadcasting contract for Australia and NZ? At this point, anything is better than the piecemeal 30 min highlights package they suffer with now.

I was wondering of this might pave the way for a round in Australia?

The problem is what time of year? Doesn't Surfer's Paradise want a race but only late in the year? Would be hard to convince Indycar to end the season not live on TV. It's already hard enough to convince them ending in the summer isn't good but at 2am down under? Would any advertisers want to be a part of that?
