A.J. Foyt announced plans for a second car at Indy and might run a third. Jon Herb (Racing Professionals) and rookie Milka Duno (SAMAX) also confirmed plans in recent days. Eddie Cheever said he will field at least one car, perhaps for Max Papis. Michael Crawford, who owns a small Pro Series team, had hoped to field a car for rookie driver Shane Lewis, but he said a decision on funding must be made by Friday. IRL president Brian Barnhart has said he could see as many as 36 car-driver combinations. Indy Star
03/26/07 Despite only twenty cars running at Homestead, Brian Barnhart said at Homestead that he's confident there will be a full field of thirty-three cars for May's Indy 500. Barnhart believes there will be more cars at Indy than in recent years and expects as many as thirty-six or thirty-seven different car/driver combinations making a qualifying attempt meaning bumping may be back again at Indy. If so Milka Duno will struggle to make the grid.
