Any more unnamed teams\entries would need to be Chevrolet, since Honda is pretty much maxed out on engines.

Buddy Lazier's family-run Indy entry confirmed, with Chevy power. I think that brings us officially to 29 at the moment, still 4 short of the full grid.

Townsend Bell confirmed to third KV car at #Indy500 #Indycar

 

That brings us up to 30.

I am on the fence about a replacement for Jim Nabors.

 

Do you find someone new or use a recording?

 

I suspect Jim would advocate finding someone new and beginning a new tradition.

 

All I know id they better not bring back Up With People again.

 

Well, Up With People would probably be just fine with this group :rolleyes: : http://www.autoweek....DYCAR/140419887
