So it was announced today that Pippa Mann will be contesting this year’s Indy 500 for Conquest Racing, in what’s gotta be Juan ‘O the WORST kept secrets... As it’s been suggested for months now that Pippa was hoping to seal-the-dealio with Conquest after previously making her debutant test in a Big Car (IndyCar) with Eric Bachelart. Thus Pippa will be behind the keyboard of Conquest’s second entry, the No. 36, previously listed as TBA.
Meanwhile I’m waiting with baited breath for Simon Pagenaud’s B-I-G announcement of who he’ll be chauffeuring the bleu No. 16 for also at this year’s Centennial 3.0 I500, as this affable Frenchman; NOT to be Cornfuzed with Frenchmen, right Mr. Innucci? Hya! Claimed that he’d be leaking the news on Tuesday, April 19th, on another INDYCAR Tuesday PR Release Day...
And James “The G-Mann”of 16th &
Georgetown claims there’s only six TBA’s remaining for this year’s 500 list. Indianapolis
Hmm? Hopefully the Trackside Boyz who’ll be going Head’s Up vs. Don Kay tonight via le Internetz... Will be able to fill in the blanks... As my initial guess was gonna be AFS Racing, yet they seem set with ‘RAFA instead. So could it be a second-car entry at Dragon Racing amidst numerous denials? Or perhaps Dreyer & Reinbold will join the Mikey Andretti 5-card Monty; we’ll see, perhaps tonight? Hmm? Who to listen too; Oh Never Mind Danny!
I swear I heard it mentioned some where’s that Davey Hamilton will be campaigning the No. 11 this year instead of the No. 21 for Dreyer & Reinbold – as obviously this number became available with Tony Kanaan’s departure from Andretti Autosports - which I now see James has updated...
