Wither Indy Car team owners

By now I’m assuming Y’all have heard bobby Rahal’s terseful words of RLR’s impending withdrawal from running a full season campaign in this year’s Indy Racing League due to the fact that he and side-kick funnyman David Letterman have been unable to locate a title sponsor for Ryan “The Dude” Hunter-reay’s past Ethanol sponsored mount, yet is still hopeful of finding somebody to throw them a bone for a partial season, or at leas the month of May.

Following upon the heals of this announcement come word via Robin Miller that KV Racing Technology has just laid off more of its remaining staff and is currently slated to only field a single entry in 2009, while Eric Bachelart has offered his small outfit a salary pay cut or closing of business, while still seeking sponsorship for either of his two racing cars, as an Indy Car spokesman has acknowledged that there currently appears to only be 18 entries slated for full season competition... But as Bachelart said, we’ll see where things stand, at the upcoming series test Feb. 23-25 at Homestead, where both the Firestone Indy Lights and Indy Cars will participate in open testing upon the Miami Speedway...
