PLENTY OF VACANCIES: In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin notes "at least five" IndyCar teams are "looking to fill seats, and the list of high-quality drivers scrambling to be in them makes this an unprecedented preparation period in the series' history." As of Thursday, "former open-wheel series champions Paul Tracy, Tony Kanaan, Dan Wheldon and Sebastian Bourdais still were without deals." Also available are Bertrand Baguette, Raphael Matos, Tomas Scheckter and Davey Hamilton, "who seeks a part-time ride." Kanaan, "who has Brazilian sponsorship for a partial program, has talked to several teams, including Dale Coyne Racing and KV Racing Technology." Cavin notes the "problem for many is a lack of funding." However, one driver "secured Thursday was Ana Beatriz," who will "drive the No. 24 car of Dreyer & Reinbold Racing" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 3/4).
