2014 Honda and Chevrolet IndyCars

2016 Honda IndyCar
ABC is broadcasting the Indy races, both Bell Isle events, and St. Pete. The rest are NBCSN. The broadcasting contract doesn't have any possibility of changing until 2018.
But we also don't know what time the races start. So, until IndyCar announces next year's TV schedule, I can't update it here.
Newgarden to replace JPM at Penske. Great news! Unfortunate for JPM, though.
Hate it for Montoya but I'm also glad for Newgarden.
Guarantee he'll get a ride faster then Marco will though and it won't be in the passenger seat of a ride service
Newgarden at Penske, very good! Bet Montoya will head to ECM and TK will go to Foyt. Rossi will probably stay at Andretti. I bet Marco will either go to Dale Coyne, that or head to sportscars.
I read somewhere probably racer.com that Marco is already confirmed for at least next year if not two at Andretti.
Maybe it's because I'm dumb and know nothing, but why would Marco leave the family team?
Because a change of scenery can be good to rejuvenate a career or get a new perspective on things. Something needs to change, I think this has been Marco's worst season in his career. I think people kind of hope for something similar to happen to Marco to what has happened to Graham Rahal, where he was having some pretty bad seasons and he changed teams, then came back to RLL and didn't have his father on the radio which seemed to help a lot (At least that's how I remember it).
I do think though this season has shown Marco grow in character as he has been shouldering a lot of the blame for being off the pace.
If Connor Daly returns to IndyCar next season I expect him to get his first win before Marco gets his next win,
I thought Marco getting a ride with Uber was gonna happen oh well.
Watch Uber becomes one of his sponsors.
Honestly I could see a competitor to Uber be willing to sponsor but not Uber themselves because they are the household name. Marco could use a Lyft in results.
Leave it to another Canadian to leave Marco a sick burn
Well, that's one shoe dropped...
0/10, not enough Nicholas cage face.
Rossi will stay put at Andretti/BHA
If you thought the Newgarden to Penske was already the worst kept secret in the world, guess again!!!
Penske thinks Newgarden would be a great fit.
Just announce it already! It's getting as bad as two people trying to hide the fact their dating even though it's painfully obvious.
New thread created. Having a thread started in 2006 for the 2017 season is a silly idea.
Would that be Sato's seat or Hawksworth's? I'd love to see Sato and TK representing Foyt.
I'm not sure, it was never mentioned whose seat he was taking if he indeed went to Foyt.
I'm just waiting for the Coyne drivers to be announced sometime in March.
Hopefully TBA finally gets to start a race next year. He's come so close so many times...
Seconded. If he could just race, we'd see how good he really is.
And as far as the 2017 schedule, I'm no fancy TV executive or something, but I'd like to see at least one or two races on NBC during the summer (They can't air races during the spring due to NHL hockey) Preferably two or three of Long Beach/Texas/Watkins Glen/Sonoma. Anyone here remember when ABC aired an IndyCar race in prime time in 2009? That would be pretty cool to try again IMO.
Thing is, ABC has the exclusive rights to network TV broadcasting under the current contract.
ABC would be a decent broadcaster if they got rid of the two idiots standing next to Allen Bestwick and actually promoted the series.
Of course, I haven't seen much of his/her career so hopefully they can finally make an impact.
The worst kept secret in sports is now official
