The first post Super Bowl INDYCAR news comes from the Hidekit Mutoh camp, as he is moving back over the Pacific Ocean. Mutoh’s best finish in an IndyCar was 2nd at Iowa in 2008, best Indy 500 finish was 7th in 2008, and his best season was 2008 when he finished 10th in the standings. Mutoh drove for Andretti for 2008 and 2009, and moved to Newman/Haas in 2010. In my opinon, the best part of Hideki being in the IndyCar series, was yelling his last name for over 10 seconds.
The news is below:

Honda has announced that Hideki Mutoh will end his IndyCar Series stint and switch to Japan's Super GT category for 2011.

The 28-year-old has competed in America since 2007, when his second place finish in Indy Lights led to a promotion to IndyCar. He spent two years with Andretti Green Racing before joining Newman/Haas last year, with a second place at Iowa in 2008 his best result.

Mutoh will now be paired with Japanese Formula 3 N class champion Takashi Kobayashi in an Aguri Suzuki-run Honda in Super GT.

With Mutoh leaving the series, KV Racing's Takuma Sato looks set to be Japan's sole full-time representative in IndyCar this season.
