Also hearing that Danica Patrick will get free Honda engines, or at least substantial financial support, in 2006. We also hear that an associate sponsor has left Danica's car and the IRL, and will go with Graham Rahal to the Champ Car Atlantics series in 2006. 12/08/05
The rumor in IRL circles is that supposedly Honda has told its teams that they will not be giving free engines to anyone except AGR next year. Everyone else may have to pay the $1.5 million lease per car. If true, we wonder if AGR's Hondas will also have the latest trick pieces that the others will get later.
