34 cars set to race at Vegas

In all there are seven British drivers confirmed for the race: Franchitti, Jay Howard, James Jakes, Alex Lloyd, Mike Conway, Pippa Mann and Dan Wheldon.

Update: It was also confirmed that Sebastian Saavedra will return to Conquest Racing in the seat of the #34 car for Vegas. "It's good to be back," he said. "I don't like to watch the races from a couch and now I'm ready to make my second finale with Conquest Racing ... I've learned more in a season in IndyCar than what I've learned in my whole racing career."

Britain's Dillon Battistini took charge of the car at last week's Kentucky Indy 300, but he retired two-thirds of the way through the race with the team citing driver fatigue as the reason.
