Speaking of Indy Race Parts, does anyone know if theyíre fielding cars this year? Last year with Gio and PPM they had a pretty good year, at least from a fans perspective. Obviously Parker is now involved in the Jason Johnson, Dietz deal this year and I think Toyota has Gio doing stuff that might limit his dirt racing. Anyone know more?

I can't find official news from CMR or Sunshine's sites. I remember them talking about wing racing last year after the Nationals. But no sign of them in Florida other than the midgets.

Wouldn't it be cool if he was secretly preparing to run an Indy Car for CMR?

It would, but (sadly) idk if they'd him get a license without some sort of previous rear-engine experience...apparently NASCAR drivers are cleared, but I'm afraid no one can jump from SC&M's without "qualifying" thru some of the "road to indy" or a formula car in Europe...anymore...

KTJ was in the #19 car, Bacon was in his #99, and I believe Courtney was in one of the Indy Race Parts #71 cars.
Thats the bummer... Sunshine has pretty much conquered wingless racing, but there's steep learning curve to go with wings, could take a long time (if ever) to reach the top....

Ballou has not been released yet from doctors. Heís social media says a late March return which Iím guessing would be the no way out at Brownstown
