According to reliable sources, TSO has confirmed that Ryan Hunter-Reay will be racing at St. Pete. That has been called a "done deal". What we haven't confirmed is who he will be driving for, and so far no one wants to tell. We will just have to wait a bit on that.This news is further supported by the words of IRL commercial division president Terry Angstadt on the "Trackside" (unrelated) radio show last night as reported by 16th and Georgetown and Indy Racing Revolution.
Rumor mill says HVM or Vision - but we haven't independently confirmed either, just that he will be racing!
"You could have been in my office the first four hours of [Thursday] morning and you would see a little pressure on that project," he said on the matter. "Inclusive of a very positive conference call with IZOD-PVH yesterday. So absolutely, we've got a lot of people pulling in the same direction."
"It's not there yet, but I hope even by the end of tomorrow, we may very well have Ryan firmed up in a car."
As they say, "Developing..."
UPDATE: Robin says it's Vision Racing.
