Love, and perhaps bigger paychecks, is all around.

Tony Kanaan said he is joining a list of IndyCar Series drivers that includes Helio Castroneves and Dan Wheldon. Their commonality: Negotiating contracts to remain with their current teams for the 2009 season and beyond.

"We do have our problems," Kanaan said of the 21-year-old (teammate Marco) Andretti, "but we work together 24/7. We race together . . . It's not [always good with teammates], but you don't just break up because of it."

"I think they've got a lot of shovels going on," (Wheldon) said of Chip Ganassi's NASCAR team. "But honestly, with the way (the IRL) is right now and they're going to have more races and I think more testing, I'm excited to stay."

    Wheldon isn't going anywhere, he seems to be pretty comfortable personality wise with TCGR. He also sees how Dario is struggling and isn't the rockstar that he was in the IRL.
