Sad news coming out of IndyCar today. From all reports and pretty solid sources, it appears Simona de Silvestro and HVM Racing are at risk to miss the IndyCar season finale at Homestead. Apparently, the team has been locked out of their garage, and security has been posted.
HVM is a small-budget team that was hit hard by some unfortunate accidents this year, and is shoestring all the way anyways. If HVM is unable to make it to Homestead, that will destroy the exciting Rookie of the Year battle that was coming down to the last race between Lloyd and de Silvestro.
It’s times like this as a fan you wish you could do something, but this won’t be the first or last time a racing team doesn’t make it to the end of the year.
It’s a mixed bag today. On one hand, Ana Beatriz will be driving for Dreyer & Reinbold at Homestead. It’d be great if Mike Conway could have made it back in the car for this one, but we’ll see him next season. Now, you have to wonder if we can say the same for Simona.
