For months, rumors have been floating around of a new manufacturer coming into Red Bull Global Rallycross in 2016. The scuttlebutt encompassed everything from Mini returning, to Chevy entering full time, and Honda designing a brand new Fit exclusively for the series. This week we found out that last rumor hit squarely in the 9 ring, just off the bullseye.

The IZOD IndyCar Series had its annual pre-season safety meeting today at which several changes were announced for the 2010 season.
