Or put Helio in it for a 6 race program, Barber, Long Beach, Indy 500, Indy road course, Portland and Laguna Seca.

Best of luck to Helio, one of the best Indycar drivers of all time. Indy 500 should be fun for him, although it's likely to be one of the most competitive fields there. But he should be able to show his magic on any circuit and I can't wait to see it

Not sure the number of titles he racked up agree with you there

He hasn't won a season long title, surely the harder achievement of an Indycar driver despite the prestige given to indy
And of his TWO Indy Victories, he had the luxury of womping over a fairly thin field for his first too.

No, on the same day when you see up and coming talents like Askew saying their short indycar career is already over, the announcement of a 45 year old Jump Starting has-been is perhaps the most underwhelming of the season

If he had any grace he'd become a team manager and give the car up to a young gun.
Kanaan too. Their best years are behind them.

When it comes to the Indy 500, Hélio is definitely up there. He won it three times, with back to back wins in 2001 and '02. His third win was in 2009, starting from pole and he has taken pole 4 times. However, he has never won the Driver's Championship but was runner up 4 times, in 2002, 2008, 2013 and '14.

Still, the 02 result being given to Helio has about as much legitamacy as a Trump decleration of victory.

Tracy won that race and we all know it

I think we’re allowed to debate. Whatever you may think of the 02 event, it doesn’t diminish Helio’s achievement. He probably deserved it more than Trump deserved his presidency. Anyway, there are still question marks over whether Tracy did legitimately take the lead when the yellows came out

I was always a CART fan. The only 500 I watched during the IRL era was in 2007, when Franchitti won after the race was stopped due to a big crash with Dan Wheldon and Marco Andretti. Prior to that the race had initially been stopped because of rain.

That would mean Kanaan will drive the #48 at Indianapolis.
So no ride for JJ unless Chip fields a 5th car ?
