Latest IndyCar Season Update

We are halfway through January and there are still several IndyCar seats open, primarily at Dale Coyne Racing and Carlin Racing. With Santino Ferrucci leaving Dale Coyne Racing and IndyCar for the greener pastures of NASCAR, Coyne still has the #18 and #19 seats open.

As is always the case every year, all the seats will be filled when the drivers with money present their checks to the team owners. We expect to see drivers share rides for those who cannot bring a full year of sponsor money.
