IndyCar announced that it’s new areo consultant, Rube Goldberg, has come up with a solution to the “Flyin’ Dallara” phenomenon.  Henceforth both Chevrolet an Honda will be rquired to close off the rear bumper panels on all superspeedways in order to decrease lift in the event a car suddenly reversing direction.  This will effectively create a parachute behind each rear wheel, so, in the event that Mr. Goldberg’s calculations are wrong and the cars fly anyway,  the parachutes will provide for a soft landing, not to mention a distinct reduction in straightaway speed.  When asked why they didn’t simply remove the wheel guards altogether (and be like every other open wheel series) Mr. Goldberg stated that IndyCar always did things the hard way.
