News and Views on Drivers Chasing Open-Wheel Stardom

Road to Indy test entrants

According to a spreadsheet that hit my inbox today, the Oct. 28-29 Chris Griffis Memorial ‘Road to Indy’ test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway has 43 cars entered between the three feeder series, with seven more entries in limbo. Those numbers seem to be in question, though, as more information arrives. Stay tuned for final numbers and updates.

Hopefully, the entries remain — or grow — when the teams begin to unload their cars this week. I’ll try to update the list below as additional information becomes available.

The USF2000 National Championship and Star Mazda Championship provided driver and team information. My Indy Lights contact hasn’t provided any information at this point. Per today’s spreadsheet:

  • USF2000: Seven teams, 14 cars with four additional entries on the fence.
  • Star Mazda: Five teams, 7 drivers and 13 cars with one additional entry on the fence.
  • Indy Lights: 10 teams, 16 cars with three additional entries on the fence.

Make the jump to see who will be testing with whom in the USF2000 and Star Mazda ranks.
