kobefly should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Good news, looks like Juncos might have some sponsors on the car on Sunday according to this IndyCar on NBC tweet.

As an Argentinian I have been following Junco's career in the US, specially after a couple of episodes in a local TV show telling his story, the guy went from nothing to where he is now. Juncos still is far away to be a solid team in US top categories (IndyCar and IMSA) but hopefully he can continue growing.

They definitely got some media attention after what happened this last weekend. Hope they can complete the Indy500 in good shape!

The Juncos story is quite impressive even without the drama of Sunday. I hope they can have a solid performance in the race.

I'm thinking you'll at least hear mention of some deals. I wouldn't be surprised to see some small sponsor decals but I think some of the charm is the blank car and some sponsors get that. Especially when they're signing a deal at the track, every mention is of the little unsponsored white car. Dragonspeed is also unsponsored but you don't hear it mentioned in the same way.

The Juncos story has the feel of Indy back to the 60's and 70's. I hope they fare well, it is a great underdog story, and the story of the American Dream. Kobefly, I'll be rooting for the team with roots in Argentina.

2 more on board for Juncos, NFP on for Indy after some free pub earlier on the uniforms, and Global Medical Response on as well. GMR is the parent company of the AMR Safety team for IndyCar and the 500 itself, drivers crew and fans.

Sketchy weather for Sunday right now with decent days on either side of it. Let's hope mother nature can make a change!

Interestingly, I ran across this Fox Business article on an IndyCar fan group...a fascinating piece in my opinion. With the amount of money that is currently flowing into the cannabis industry, this could very well spell a new wave sponsorships and investments reminiscent of the tobacco era.

I am partly relieved that Craft 1861 chose to invest in IndyCar rather than say....nascar. Perhaps cannabis is too sophisticated for nascar types? They do REALLY like their cigarettes/tobacco and cheap beer water after all.

https://www.foxbusiness.com/features...500-craft-1861

This will be very interesting to see how this develops in the future, and what kind of benefits the series will receive if the pot industry continues on its trajectory.

Who do you think will win?


Who would you like to see win?


I think any of the Penske and Carpenter cars have a more or less equal shot. I'll take Ed Jones for the win just because I don't want to see a repeat for Penske.


I don't think he has much chance of winning but I'd like to see Rahal in victory circle.



Mainly hoping that all the small teams can finish. The series needs more full time teams and a decent Indy finish can be an important springboard to season long sponsorship.

I wouldn't mind seeing Carpenter finally picking up the trophy and I think he'll have as good a chance as any of the top drivers.

If Carpenter can't win I'm obviously hoping for either Ericsson or Rosenqvist to bring the trophy back home to Sweden for the first time since Brack won in 1999. Hey, it's the Indy 500 - anything can happen

Lastly I hope Kyle Kaiser and Juncos Racing have a good, solid run.

There's a nice feature on the Autosport website, where David Mashler discusses where it went wrong for McLaren. Well worth a butcher's. It is nice and in depth
