    Default Alonso to run 2017 Indy 500

    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Call me crazy, but I like his chances to drink the milk.

    A lot will depend on weather I think... Rossi had a few races under his belt to get acclimated. Alonso will just have May (and a special practice/test). If the weather is good and he gets lots of track time it will help.
    Especially if it was like last year with all the race condition testing going on. He'll be able to run in traffic, practice the draft/tow with his teammates... measure the Chevys... etc...

    Definitely there's no doubt an Andretti car can win. ...Unless Chevy is sandbagging and has a beast of an engine to unleash come May.

    Alonso is saying all the right things and was great during his interviews from Barber yesterday. Definitely moving the needle to have him coming to run the 500 next month.
    He's making himself somebody you root for with the attitude he's showing.
