FORT WORTH, TEXAS (TICKER) -- With some of the top teams in the Indy Racing League IndyCar Series mired in the back of the field with engine issues, Chevrolet is taking action to turn around its program before it's too late.
IRL newcomers Toyota and Honda have beaten Chevrolet like a rented mule this season. Faced with a horsepower gap - and an even bigger perception problem - the American automaker is hoping to solve it with European engineering.

If IRL is going to be a big time series, they need to have the manufacturers there to compete. the worst thing about this is GM has always only piddled around with racing and never committed the big dollars needed to win. Maybe Ford will just give up on CART and come into the IRL
The GM teams are the ones who have been in IRL from the start, helping Tony form his league. It's just too bad that they are the ones who are suffering most from GMs engine troubles.
