Mark Miles, president of Hulman and Company, the parent company to the Verizon IndyCar Series and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has said that the series fully support McLaren’s bid to enter the series full-time in 2019.
Speaking to the IndyCar website following the news that Fernando Alonso will not race in Formula One next season, Miles said:
Today’s announcement certainly has fueled excitement among INDYCAR fans who hope that Alonso will compete throughout the championship in 2019. “McLaren is working to put all the necessary arrangements in place, and we are supporting their efforts. I don’t expect this to be resolved until closer to the end of this year.
