Rising Spanish star to get second PacWest seat?
Also due for a decision is Eddie Cheever who will decide the identity of the second driver in his Indy Racing League team. Cheever is going to race one car but the second is up for grabs and former Jaguar Racing test driver Tomas Scheckter was testing the car this week at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Cheever however says that he is more inclined to go for an experienced racer and we hear that Johnny Herbert is the man most likely to get the drive, although other names being bandied about include Buddy Rice, Dan Wheldon and Jeff Ward.
