Two more compentitors will join Mario Dominguez on the sidelines for the Iowa Corn Indy 250 tomorrow. From the braintrust at TrackSide Online:

Marty Roth and Bruno Junqueira are both packing up and will not run this weekend. Remember, in early May, we heard that the IRL was going to restrict this race to just 26 starters, but 27 were planning to be here. PCM then decided not to make the trip, Marty crashed, Bruno crashed and now we've got 24!

Roth is reporting that a pushrod broke in the rear, causing his crash, and we already noted that the left rear lower wishbone on Bruno's car broke - sending him in to the wall.

It is notable that Roth has a back-up, that in theory should be ready to go, but they are electing not to use it. And while Dale Coyne could probably get a back-up together enough to run tomorrow, they too are not going that route.

Looks like even Moto Marty is getting frugal with his weekly wall quotient. Just one good moment of contact and he's done for the week.
