All I have for here is that Boston is going to get a track in the streets and Road America might come back.

Big news for Alex Zanardi for 2016. The man that lost both his legs in a horrifying crash in 1999 could get a chance to race in the 100th Indy 500. Teams looking at him are KV Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing.

First set of Silly Season news came out so here we go

Andretti Autosport: Michael plans to keep all 4 drivers. RHR is safe for 2016, Marco is close, Munoz is father, and Justin Wilson could come back or not. No further plan for Silvestro.

AJ Foyt- Both drivers might not come back

Bryan Herta- Gabby Chaves might come back but no contract plans yet.

Josef Newgardan could move to another team or stay with CFH. He has gotten calls from Chip Ganassi Racing. This can help Luca Filippi get a full time ride for CFH.

Chip Ganassi Racing: Dixon and Kimball are safe for 2016 and Kanaan is planning for a renewal. Karam and Saavedra could loose their rides if Newgardan signs with Ganassi.

KV Racing: Bourdais is safe for 2016 but Coletti is endangered for loosing his ride in he can't get more points in the championship.

Rahal Letterman: They plan to run two car again to race along side Graham Rahal. No words on who.

Schmit Peterson: James Hinchcliffe is going to return to the car after the 2015 season. James Jakes plans to sign back since he is the perfect fit for the no. 2 car in the team. Ryan Briscoe plans to run full time in sports cars.

Penske: Everyone is returning.

Indy lights team Carlin Racing plans to move up to Indy Car to run full time after their success in Indy Lights. They plan to get Ed Jones to move up with former F1 driver Max Chilton looking to join up with them.

Conor Daly looking for a full time ride.

Dale Coyne: They plan to run one full time car next season. No plans on who.

Oh yeah and Grace Autosports plans on becoming the first full female team for the 100th Indy 500 with Katherine Legge joining in. They want to run full time after getting funding at the Detroit Grand Prix but they don't have sponsorship yet to run full time. The Indy 500 is their main goal right now. Katherine races in the Tudor Championship and is a former Indy Car driver. She races with Schmit Peterson in this year's Indy 500 and finish 26th.

Road America is back on the schedule for 2016 with the new addition of the new Boston Street Course. There is still talk about Indy Car going back to Phoenix (Jeff Gordon Speedway) and Homestead for 2016.

Sadly after the amazing race at Auto Club, they have dropped out of the 2016 schedule due to Indycar wanting to keep their drivers safe. Other tracks they might drop out is NOLA and Milwaukee. NOLA is because it's unfinished and the time of the year the race was set in. Tracks that might be added are Phoenix, and Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City.

Pigot and Brabham said they are ready for a full time ride in Indycar are Pigot tested a Penske car and Brabham in a Andretti car. There is probably no chance of them getting those rides but there is other rides that they could get next season. Some of those are CFH if Josef leaves, Rahal wanting another car, and KV if they release Coletti.

Actually they dropped Auto Club due to scheduling conflicts. And NOLA is confirmed to not be on the schedule for next season.

Oriol Servia is set to race in Justin Wilson's #25 car in his honor. This can help him get a ride in 2016 but not in a way that anyone would want to get a ride.

Alright so here is the plan for Josef Newgardan. He can go:
A) Go to Chip Ganassi Racing and race for the 4th car on the team along side Dixon, Kaanan, and Kimball
B) Go to Penske Racing. How that would work with all 4 cars in contacts? Penske could drop one of his drivers which 2 drivers that could be endangered of loosing their ride with Penske are Power and Castroneves. The wouldn't drop Pagenaud since they just got him this year and Montoya since he probably would race 1 more year before he retires and nearly got Penske the championship.
C) He stays at CFH and nothing else happens and we live happily ever after.
