Sports Car Fantasia

Could It Happen? Only time will tell…

Otay, so this is just pure 100% conjecture, but; That’s what All of us “Bench Racers” and lowly Bloggers do during the Off-season, even if Thars still two Formula 1 races remaining.

By now, I’m Arse-suming Y’all have heard the News that Kevin Bacon’ Magnussen will become a Tintops’ Driver next year, after the announcement that the Danish F1 Pilote’ who’s lost his drive at Haas F1 for 2020 will b moving Stateside in 2021.

As Magnussen will race for Thee Cheepster’, nee Chip Ganassi Racing’s rebooted IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship team, campaigning a Caddilac VR Daytona Prototype International (Dpi) machine, albeit I’ve got Zero Clue if this will be the ex-Wayne Taylor Racing (WTR) mount?

And I’ve also either read on perhaps? Or Heard somewhere that Chase Elliott will contest next year’s Rolex 24, presumably for Caddilac since he’s a GM Driver. While we know that NASCAR Seven Times Champion Jimmy Johnson will be making his IndyCar debut for CGR next year on the Twisties’, while TK’ Follow-your-Schnoz! Kanaan will drive Jimmy’s #48 Dallara/Honda IndyCar for the Ovals, including the Indianapolis 500 the next two years.

Thus where am I going with this you may be asking? And like I said before it’s just total Speculation, but! How Cool would it be if Cheep’ were to run a second Caddy’ Prototype at next year’s Daytona 24 Hours?

As this All Star entry would featurer Jimmy Johnson, chase Elliott, Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon at it’s controls! While Ganassi’s primary season-long Caddilac would see it’s two regular drivers Kevin Magnussen and Renger van der Zande joined by CGR’s other two IndyCar Schues’ Marcus Ericsson and CGR Newcomer Alex Palou.

As the second Caddilac VR Dpi could come from and be run by Juncos Racing, who I believe still has their #54 Caddy’ Dpi parked in it’s Indianapolis, Err Speedway Shop, Righto?

Yeah I know, we shouldn’t ask too much for Christmas, as it’s just a wishful thought. Although I’m also hoping to hear where Ryan Briscoe winds up? Since he’s the driver who needs a ride the most after being let go by WTR…
