Chip Ganassi Racing Looks Strong This Weekend in Texas

Fort Worth, TX – We all knew that Chip Ganassi Racing would be strong this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway. Last year, Honda drivers led 488 of the overall 648 superspeedway laps, including all but 11 laps in this very race. They did that without Chip Ganassi Racing. Imagine that stat now with Ganassi on their side. At Indy, they led 181 of the 200 laps two weeks ago. Ganassi driver Max Chilton led a race high 50 laps that day. Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan had two of the better…

Scott Dixon, Honda Fastest In IndyCar Practice at Texas, Carpenter Leads Final Practice

Fort Worth, TX – The green flag flew for the first Verizon IndyCar Series practice session of the weekend three hours later than originally scheduled on Friday, but the new drainage system showed it’s worth because of that stat.

But, the new drainage system and a swift track drying effort allowed practice to begin at 2 pm CT, some three…

At Midway Point of IndyCar Season, These Drivers Aren’t Happy

INDIANAPOLIS – With the checkered flag flying on the two duels in Detroit last weekend, we’ve now reached the virtual midway mark of the season. We’re eight races into the 17 race slate in 2017, and with that being said, this season is about as wide open as its ever been.

Indy 500 Battle Could Be Fight Between Andretti Autosport and Chip Ganassi Racing

INDIANAPOLIS – It looks like it’s shaping up to be another Honda dominated Indianapolis 500. Last year, Honda drivers led 129 of the 200 laps in the 100th Running of the event, and with an aerokit freeze in the offseason, there wasn’t much Chevrolet could do to close the gap between the two manufacturers on superspeedways since. Also in 2016, Honda drivers won two poles and three of the 16 races. Both feats were on superspeedways. They led only 110 total laps away from Indy, Pocono and Texas last year. Obviously, how…

Ganassi Drivers Not Happy Yet With Race Pace for Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS – After Honda pretty much put a whooping to the Chevy teams on superspeedway’s last year, I think with the aerokit freeze in the offseason as well as the addition of Chip Ganassi Racing too, everyone pretty much assumed this year’s Indianapolis 500 would be won by one of the four Ganassi drivers. They had a distinct advantage right? They obviously were well aware of where Chevy was lacking on the superspeedway side of things since they were on that side last year. Now, they get the Honda information and…
