USAToday has an article stating not only is it likely Fernandez Racing will field both Scott Sharp and Kosuke Matsuura again in 2007, it is also convinced they will both carry the same sponsors - Delphi and Panasonic, respectively. Co-owner Tom Anderson puts the odds at "80% or better."

Stability is good but surprising in today's racing environment. Although they have sponsored Sharp throughout his entire IRL career, I'm sure he was concerned when Delphi filed for bankruptcy last year.

Something to notice in the article is that Fernandez Racing is approaching sponsors with two plans relating to the possible IRL/Champ Car merger. "When we talk to potential sponsors, we have to present a plan for two paths. One, if the two sides come together, and the other, if they stay separate," said Anderson.
