TRYING TO SECURE A FULL FIELD: The AP's Michael Marot reported IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard yesterday "offered to help find sponsors, engines and any other assistance" to make sure the traditional starting field of 33 cars is full for this year's Indianapolis 500. Bernard said, "We haven't had a race since 1947 that didn't have that many cars and we have to do everything we can to make sure we get 33." Marot noted with just 33 driver-car combinations and the Chevrolet and Honda engines "almost all divvied up, filling spots with new cars will be a challenge" (AP, 5/13).
