So, Panther owner John Barnes (@jbindy4), who owns a Chevy-powered team, busted out Twitter Thursday and said: “@Jbindy4: Today is the day to resolve TURBOGATE! I hope @indcar gets their act together. It has been embarrassing.”
Today IndyCar said "shut your CAKE HOLE" (I'm paraphrasing):
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kurt Busch will race in the Pioneer Hi-Bred 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series on Sunday, May 20. Busch will join an already very long and talented list of Nationwide Series drivers who will all be competing for a spot in Pizza Ranch Victory Lane.

The packages can be purchased from the Milwaukee IndyFest website at www.MilwaukeeIndyFest.com or the Wisconsin State Fair Park box office at 414-266-7100.
