Sage Karam will make an unexpected fill-in appearance at Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates for this weekend’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Brickyard Grand Prix, as he’ll sub for the injured Memo Rojas in the team’s No. 01 Ford EcoBoost Riley.

The team said Rojas was ruled out of action due to a nagging back issue.

Alexander Rossi has been named reserve driver of Marussia having left arch rivals Caterham just before the recent German GP.

The team says that Rossi will step in if one of the other drivers has a problem, and he will also do some FP1 sessions – which means that he will probably be seen in action in Austin.

Fernando Alonso could be contractually free to walk away from Ferrari.

Technically, the Spaniard remains under contract to the struggling Maranello team until the end of 2016.

“I’m sure he is very frustrated,” Niki Lauda told the Spanish newspaper El Pais earlier this week. “But he can’t just go to McLaren because he has a contract that he can’t get out of unless he’s sacked. Sometimes you choose a car and you’re wrong.”

Mercedes team chairman Lauda, however, may not be right.

NFL star Reggie Wayne has been eagerly awaiting his return to the football field after tearing his ACL last season. So when his opportunity came on Wednesday, it’s only fitting that he made that most of it.

The Indianapolis Colts wide receiver rolled up to training camp in the back of a two-seater IndyCar driven by American racer and hometown hero Ed Carpenter.

“I want one of these,” Wayne told reporters after hopping out of the high-powered machine. “I don’t know how I’m going to get one, but I enjoyed every single bit of that. That was fun. I’m a guy that likes speed – this is one way to get that speed in me so I enjoyed every bit of it.”
