If you take the 31 confirmed, plus the 4 probable my calculator tells me that atleast 35 cars will be on track next month. If you would of told the IRL back in January that there would be 35 cars in May, I guarantee you they would of taken it.

Of the 7 possible I see up to 3 happening, with any combination of Foyt,RL,Roth,Coyne and Herta/Vision.

  1. I think you will see more then just the teams you have mention show up in the month of may. I wouldnt be surprised if there were at least 40 car driver combos. After listening to the announcers blab away today on the online broadcast they made it sound like there were at least 3 to 4 teams out there like Bryan stewart racing and stars and stripes something. They also made them sound promising. Maybe there job is to just stir up rumors but it got me excited
