Scott Speed? (F1) Jaques Villeneuve? (F1 Champion), I would watch it if he were entered for sure. Kimi Raikkonen, I would buy tickets to see this. Others: J.P. Montoya, T. Stewart.

Give me Speed, Villeneuve, and Raikkonen and it would be a total success. No other drivers need be entered. But, Montoya and Stewart would complete my top five. Each very aggressive drivers in their own open wheel time. Very good and successful as well. The best of the best should be the focus by Indycar's committee. I don't want to see former cart and indycar drivers that are recent so/so's. I want to see the best from the best. F! and past champions are a must, who can race anything they step into.

True...true... I'd like to see Villeneuve, Paul Tracy (if he has to be one of the 5, if he is not a regular by then which I hope he is), Zanardi would be totaly cool as well, Montoya, and Tony Stewart (all of these guys are former Indycar champs!), Raikkonen, even Micheal Andretti! Many great possibilities, I hope we get most of these great drivers, awesome idea by Indycar!

Montoya should really do this. He has the skill and would be a shoe-in at Gannassi.

Other drivers I'd like to see in this race are Raikkonen and Kubica.

I wonder how it will turn out in the end and if many high profile drivers dare to give it a shot. So far some of the (lesser) F1 and GP2 huys who have tried driving these cars in the last couple of years have had downright disappointing results (Doornbos, Sato, Viso, Conway). Wilson is the only real exception (on road courses). Meanwhile the NASCAR guys probably mostly suck on a streetcourse in an openwheel car (like Carpenter), so it's hard to say who has the talent and experience with these cars except Montoya and some old IndyCar/CART drivers.
