Twenty entries that will each receive $1.2 million as part of IndyCar's Leaders Circle program have been revealed in a bulletin, with the remaining cars split by finishing order, the Indianapolis Star reported late Thursday.
Entries that finished in the top 22 in 2011 points earned 18 spots. Andretti Autosport received three spots for its planned three-car lineup (cars 26, 27 and 28), and KV Racing Technology also received three spots for its similar arsenal, although KVRT hasn't yet confirmed its final driver lineup.
Dragon Racing (Sebastien Bourdais) and Ed Carpenter Racing (Carpenter) earned a spot apiece in the program after making strong presentations to series officials. The other spots, numbers 21 and 22, will be split among the outside members at each race. A maximum of $1,280,000 could be earned if a car was to be the highest non-Leaders Circle member per race.
