INDYCAR: Pagenaud lands New Ride at Penske

Suppose it shouldn't be too surprising that the driver affectionately known here at No Fenders as "Symone Pagenoe,"  aka Simon Pagenaud, who's contested for the Indy Car Series title the past two seasons has been snapped up by 'El Capitano, nee Roger Penske, who'll run a four-car operation for the first time ever in 2015, as I first heard the news via the Indianapolis Star early Monday morning.

Thus as typical, Penske's preparing for the future, as I believe this will provide a "Soft" landing for 'HULIO's impending retirement; after all, Helio Castroneves is 40, while Juan Pablo Montoya just turned 39. Hence, it's not too hard to S-E-E that they'll soon be out of  IndyCar's, to which my real Questione is who'll get the third seat behind 'DJ WillyP, aka Will Power and "Pageantry," as No Fenders 'Offical Photographer 'CARPETS calls Pagenaud, as three cars is better than two, typically...

thus, it seems pretty certain that thee Mayor 'O Hinchtown (James Hinchcliffe) will remain with Mikey' Andretti, as I'll be more intrigued over whom Sam Schmidt, Davey Hamilton & Co ink to replace their departed Numero Uno's seat, as my early favourites are: Gabby Chaves, the 2014 Indy Lights champion, J.R. Hildebrand, or Jack Harvey, whilst I assume that  Mikhail Aleshin
will  return next year?
