More good vibes about the new car, this time from the testing at Barber.

"Overall, things are running really well and the Honda engine has been really good," Rahal told SPEED.com. "The car has a lot of grip and there's still a long way to go. The car's impressive. Over the past couple years, the times I'm running now here are way quicker [based on using similar tires].

The great Sarah Fisher engine controversy is over, just as people were getting themselves worked up into a good lather over it.

She'll have what may be best engine of all, the Honda.

And it's thanks to Rahal Letterman Lanigan, who gave Fisher their second engine. Not sure if it's generosity, or if Rahal couldn't find a full season sponsor for his second car. Also, this is payback for Sarah helping Graham Rahal in 2010.

Great news for the series. Folks are running out of things to get mad about!

You just knew that a team ready to go was not going to sit out. Especially a female owned team. That would have been the final kiss of death.

I'm sure Dallara will find something to piss and moan about.

Good news. Rubens Barrichello signs a two-year deal with KV racing. He joins Kanaan and Viso.

IIRC KV had been a pretty crashy outfit. Maybe now they can finish more races.

Oh man, those guy shed parts like my dog sheds hair. I hate to see it too. I've always been a big fan of JV. I hope RB brings them good fortune.

Heard that on the news in that twilight between falling asleep and being awake. Glad to know it wasn't a dream. This excites me, I like Rubens, it will get me to watch IRL a bit this year. I hope he does well.

In so I can find it after the name change.


Nice to see Reubens over here, and I'm glad Sarah got the engines she needed. I always felt there was more to her story then I heard. As many have said she was a fan favorite, but always seemed to be missing the right equipment.
