Not sure what would’ve changed since then, I can’t read it, but I wouldn’t call it likely at all.

This is a positive development. Given some comments by Dan Andersen recently Lights budgets are somewhere in the $800-900K range, so some additional funding was still required to be brought or found. The tests are a pretty big benefit as well.

With healthy prize packages already in place across the three series, the Indy Pro 2000 champion’s scholarship is currently valued at $609,245. This will now increase to a guaranteed full season contract with an Indy Lights team of the driver’s choice. The agreement will cover all 2021 series-sanctioned race and test events from the season-opener to the finale, entry and test day fees and Cooper tires (per the allowable number of sets).

In addition, the 2020 Indy Pro 2000 champion will be awarded a test with an NTT INDYCAR SERIES team following completion of the 2021 Indy Lights season.

Similarly, the 2020 USF2000 champion will receive a scholarship valued at $328,225, guaranteeing a full season contract with an Indy Pro 2000 team of the driver’s choice including all 2021 race and test events, entry and test day fees and allowable number of sets of Cooper tires. The scholarship value will be increased to include an Indy Lights test at the conclusion of the 2021 Indy Pro 2000 season.

Even clicking all the way through on that, it's too small for me to read and my browser won't enlarge it. Does it have a Tulsa-style disclaimer about not holding the track or IndyCar responsible if you get sick?

No disclaimer; they recommend those in at-risk groups stay home and said they’re rearranging seating and supplying masks and sanitizer. And account holders have until July 6th to go online and verify how much of their order they want to retain.

It sounds like a lot of this is still in the works and they want to get an idea of how many people still plan on attending.
