During today's practice King said "It's somebody that should of already won it"
So who could it be? Complete speculation on my part, but Robby Gordon has his own stock car team and he came up just a couple gallons of fuel shy of victory in the 1999 Greatest Spectacle. The only possible hold up to this playing out is that Robby currently runs Toyota in Cup, and as I'm sure most you know Honda and Toyota aren't exactly the best of friends. But, last season Gordon talked heavily about leaving the tin top world and coming back to Open wheel. Could he already know that Toyota isn't going to like it, but he just doesn't care because he's coming back Indycar racing next year? I don't know, let the rumors world.
UPDATE: Curt Cavin reports that his sources tell him that it's John Andretti with Richard Petty Motorsports. But I've heard that the deal Mike King is speaking of, does not involve John Andretti. I guess were going to have to wait until Monday.
King also reports that de Ferran Motorsports could very well attempt Indy this year.
He also says that Scott Sharp wants to be back in Indycars, and the original deal that was in place for him to run the 500 this year has fallen through, but they are currently looking for a replacement.
