AP wire services report that Eddie Cheever, who has taken over for the injured Bryan Herta, will drive for A.J. Foyt next year. Herta, who raced for Foyt this year until a season-ending injury, is expected to be announced as the primary driver for Chip Ganassi next year. Ganassi may yet run another two-car effort (thought possibly out of separate garages) as Gugelmin, Ganassi's current #2 driver, is trying to finalize sponsorship matters to race for the team.

Additionally, Newman-Haas is expected to officially announce that Michael Andretti will race for them next year and that the team will be gaining Budweiser sponsorship. Haas is trying to work out the details with Paul Tracy this week for the secong Newman-Haas ride, but Penske has delayed announcement on his option of Tracy until after the season finale at Laguna Seca this weekend.
