INDYCAR fans, your long national nightmare will soon be over: Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing reportedly has an engine deal.

Fisher's situation had been garnering an increased amount of attention in recent weeks, with bloggers and mainstream media chiming in on the matter. Things had been getting iffy for the team in regards to making the grid for next month's season-opener at St. Petersburg, as all three engine makers hadn't given SFHR a motor for various reasons.

SFHR won last season at Kentucky Speedway with Ed Carpenter, who has since moved on to his own team as a driver/owner.
