NTT IndyCar Series team owner Trevor Carlin has confirmed that he spoke with IndyCar president Jay Frye at the 2019 season ending Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey with regards to how the bigger teams in the series can run many full time cars in the series which Carlin says makes it more difficult for teams like his to attract sponsors and compete against the larger teams.

Carlin entered the NTT IndyCar Series in 2018 with two full time drivers with Charlie Kimball and Max Chilton however for the 2019 season Max Chilton decided that he no longer wanted to compete on rivals so did only road and street courses.

The team also ran Charlie Kimball on a partial schedule with Conor Daly and Patricio O’Ward driving for the team during the season.

Carlin has warned IndyCar that the sport runs the risk of having just three teams with Team Penske, Chip Ganassi Racing and Andretti Autosport in the future if things don’t change in the series soon.
