DRR are a Chevy team and Rahal Honda so I would imagine they go back to Hildebrand or Karam if Stef can’t go. They have a backup chassis on site.If he can't go would Rahal try to get in there?
There are a lot of different possibilities. They could nominate their own driver, or they could sell the tub to Rahal who could run it. That or they could withdraw it and Rahal would move forward as the first alternate.If he can't go would Rahal try to get in there?
Stefan Wilson is being transported to the hospital after a practice incident with Katherine Legge. Was placed on a stretcher but gave a thumbs up as he was loaded into the ambulance. He was spun around and nosed into the turn 1 wall reminiscent of a lot of the 1992 wrecks.
It was definitely tubbed, they’re prepping an unraced spare chassis now.Pruett is reporting Wilson's tub might be damaged.

I appreciate the integrity.Graham Rahal explains why he never had any thought to explore buying a seat into this year's Indy 500 after failing to qualify Sunday.www.yahoo.com
That’s pretty much where I’m at. It’s a bit disappointing since it takes away from Bump Day but it makes a lot of sense for a number of reasons.Ngl, I really don't like it.
However, why put another driver that has not had any seat time out there at this point?
Fifth Third and United Rentals will join Graham on the 24 and the team implied Cusick’s/Wilson’s sponsors will move over to the team’s other entry with RHR on the 23, which was previously unsponsored.D and R gets their car in the race, Rahal gets to race, and I am sure some of Rahal's sponsors will be on the car. It's not ideal, but it was probably the best solution to an awful situation.

Gigabrain Kat wound up getting all of her teammates into the 500
I don't see why he should or would refuse the offer. He wasn't trying to buy the ride or getting someone else removed from an earned spot and he was willing to accept his fate. If he would have refused the seat it still wouldn't fix Wilson's misfortune.Not buying but accepts a gift. Yeah it’s the same. Not earned.
