Would be nice if IndyCar would ran GT3 or DPI engines as that would solve the problem...
Have Ford actually said they don't want to be in IndyCar?

Rumors are Bill Ford hates Indy so everyone believes he wants nothing to do with Indycars. Think we have a better chance to see an F1 partnership than an Indy engine program. Which I think is funny cause he could easily use the EcoBoost branding on a V6 similar to the street car program. But I think there is something in the background making Indy a non-starter for them in reality. Course that doesn't stop the skunkworks team rumors from going up again and again so who knows.

MP, I think it was, hinted the same guys that built the tuned GT engine had worked on an Indy concept in the evening hours. No build, just a paper design I believe. There are a few groups within Ford, as with probably most major manufacturers, who create play toys in their free time. Supposedly the first draft of the current GT was an evening project before they presented a drawn concept to the bosses.

It's just a rumour at the moment that Cosworth are interested in Indycar. We'll see, it would add something if they did

TL;DR: Portland and Sonoma, for Corey Krause (ex-Lazier Partners).

IndyCar's said nothing about this AFAIK so take with a grain of salt for now I guess.
