This time we mean it.

According to the Indy Star Sarah Fisher has a deal and will be driving for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing at the next race in Kentucky. No word though on if she is replacing Buddy Lazier or will be driving her own car.

By the way, in case you did not know the article mentions Fisher's fiancee and his connection to D&R, so you had to figure there was some extra motivation to bring her back. Regardless, this should be an excellent storyline to the forthcoming Danica! 300 in Kentucky.

UPDATE: IndyCar.com has more on this. Fisher will indeed be replacing Lazier in the #5 entry, although it appears it may be a trial run invloving a one-race contract.

Also, note that Fisher has the record for the fastest qualifying time at Kentucky. Additionally, Danica! was the pole sitter last season at the speedway. No doubt the IRL will play up these two items for the next week.

UPDATE II: The Pressdog take is a must read.

    This is BIG. First the Iowa track and now Sarah. HUGE. I can't wait to see what Sarah's My Name is IRL nickname is.

    Dog, the nickname is a total layup. Check the driver listings.
