Silly season news fell to earth today in Texas and Indianapolis, as A.J. Foyt Racing announced its expansion to a two car effort for the 2015 IndyCar season. Yeee-haw! Now A.J.’s got twice the number of drivers to yell at. Twenty three year old rookie from Bradford, England Jack Hawksworth who drove for BHA this year will pilot the number 41 car. Other than Indianapolis, Foyt hasn’t regularly run a second car in years and longtime sponsor ABC Supply is behind the effort. The expansion for the Honda team is interesting news and puts the new shop in Speedway, Indiana announced a couple of weeks ago in perspective. The fact that Sato’s back for another year with the team is also news and could be easily overlooked. More to come in IndyCar News Week in Review.
