ESPN.com has an interview with Bobby Rahal where he talks about his difficult season and discusses plans for next year.

"Being a three-car team has got its pluses, but there's a lot of challenges to that. I think a two-car team is a lot easier," Rahal said. "I think we'll just stay [with] two cars, maybe think about doing a third car for Indy, but only if that was properly funded and we got the right person and staff, then there's no point in just doing it. My sense is that we'll be a two-car team unless those criteria are met."

Translation: unless Scott Sharp and his sponsors want join us, we're going to be a two-car outfit. Finding sponsorship for one car is hard enough.

The article also mentions the team is negotiating with Jeff Simmons to continue as the driver/spokesperson for the Ethanol ride.
