Not happening it seems....

Racer has updated the above today.....

Abel Motorsports drops Indy 500 plans; entry list set at 34
Bill Abel and his Abel Motorsports team will not take part in the Indianapolis 500, which solidifies the field at 34 cars.

Abel said on Sunday at Barber Motorsports Park that he was giving it another week to see if his 2023 Indy 500 driver RC Enerson could raise the funds to bankroll the effort, but Enerson’s efforts were unsuccessful.

“Yes, that’s what’s happened,” Abel said. “I had a meeting at the shop this morning and let everybody know we won’t be racing at Indy.”

Abel’s son Jacob won his first Indy NXT race last weekend and could be in the frame to test the team’s brand-new Dallara DW12, and possibly take part in his first IndyCar race later in the season if everything aligns as desired.

Practice starts Tuesday I think.

Schedule:

May 14 | Tue. Practice
May 15 | Wed. Practice
May 16 | Thu. Practice
May 17 | Fast Friday
May 18 | Sat. Quals
May 19 | Sun. Quals
May 20 | Mon. Practice
May 24 | Carb Day
May 25 | Legends Day
May 26 | Race Day





So no surprises with Ilott confirmed in the #6 for McLaren

Oh, except we have a 30 year span between the youngest drivers (Both Kyffin Simpson and Nolan Siegel are just 19) and the oldest fart, Helio, at 49.
Helio is after AJ Foyt's record... AJ was 57 when he started in 1992

That gives us 34 all up

Rather, he might be the backup if Larson can't run.

Its new livery time


Juncos Hollinger Racing has revealed special liveries for Romain Grosjean and Agustin Canapino

Image

Grosjean was nicknamed 'The Phoenix' after surviving a horrific fiery crash in what was his final Formula 1 start in the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix, escaping with only minor injuries.

Romain's livery for his third 500 reflects the design of the mythological Phoenix.
“The Phoenix is how you take a bad experience and turn it into a good experience," said Grosjean, who drives the No. 77 for Juncos. "Obviously, my experience was in the fire, but The Phoenix is a way to say to people that they can do it. Just because you go through something brutal, it doesn’t mean that you can’t come back from it, rise from it, and reach a better level. That’s what I like about the Phoenix - it’s not the fire, it’s the rise after it.
Image
The No. 78 entry of Agustin Canapino will also be designed based on his own persona, ‘The Titan.' The Argentina-born driver earned the moniker from his home country as he became a national hero through his racing career. He made his Indianapolis 500 debut in 2023, finishing 26th after being collected in a late-race crash.

“I am incredibly proud to represent the people of Argentina, and even more proud of the nickname they have bestowed upon me,” said Canapino

Oooof. That was a bit more than a brush. I liked the way that he steered away from the inside wall so it wouldnt get damaged. :whistling:

So, who will be #34 when qualy is done and dusted.... who will be watching from the stands or pitlane?
