Mike King spills the beans

With Curt Cavin absent from his own podcast, Trackside co-host Kevin Lee chatted up the IMS Radio's Mike King, who rumor-mongers so much in th einterview he ought to have his own blog. I mean, you can't just drop stuff like this and be nonchalant, Mike.

"Certainly, Kevin, if you pay attention to what Mike Lanigan from Newman/Haas/Lanigan rcently said, it certainly sounds like that team is going to go to three cars. It looks like Graham Rahal...this is a guy who's gonna have some company on that team. It looks like Robert Doornbos is probably going to wind up on part of that team, and it looks like Sebastien Bourdais...is probably going to be back in the fold there as well."

I thought it was either Bad Bobby OR SeaBass - not both! Doornbos and Bourdais on the same team? In the immortal words of Dick Enberg, "Oh my!" If this happens then move over AGR, there's a new circus coming to town.

Oh by the way, King also fills us in on the latest with Oriol Servia, Buddy Rice and a few others. Lend him your ear.

UPDATE: It appears that once again Mike King's Crystal Balls have failed him. In the past he declared Danica Patrick would win at Michigan in '07 and Sam Hornish Jr wouldn't leave the IRL. I guess we'll add this to the list since reports (thanks meesh) are that Sebastien Bourdais will be driving in F1 again next year.

All of this begs the question: How do I get into Mike King's NCAA bracket?

    as much as I've been chuckling at the whinerfest that NHL would become should these two be teamed up, it looks like we'll just have the photographic memories to play with this season

    Teammates who dislike each other! N-word-ish. Or maybe AGR II!

    Bourdais' deal with NHL was contingent on his return to F1.
    He deserved another season in F1, so I'm glad it worked out for him...but I must admit I'd rather
    have the chance to call races with him part of NHL and the IndyCar Series. I was a bit surprised (as was Dennis Reinbold) to find out Milka was going to fill out the 3 car stable at NHL...but that's the case. My percentage on predictions isn't perfect, but I'm not afraid to go out on a limb every now and again. See you at the track.
