Kurt Busch still interested in Indy 500 Greg Zipadelli, crew chief both times Tony Stewart ran the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, is no fan of the grueling doubleheader. It's a position he made clear last October to Danica Patrick as she was trying to put together an Indy 500 deal that would interfere with her first full season of Sprint Cup racing.
Now Zipadelli has a new problem on his hands: Kurt Busch, the newest addition at Stewart-Haas Racing, said he's still trying to put together a deal to run next year's Indianapolis 500 with Andretti Autosport. "It's something that's still on the table," Busch said Tuesday when he was introduced at SHR.
"There's certain timelines that I've agreed to with Michael Andretti if we're still going to do the deal. We're working on things." Busch is also trying to put something together to run the IndyCar season finale at Fontana, and said Stewart, his new boss at SHR, wants to go to the race with him if he does. It was enough to make Zipadelli, the competition director at SHR, wince several times. Associated Press
