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.

INDIANAPOLIS – Charlie Kimball has been the topic of conversation a lot recently due to his recent spats on track with Will Power. Granted, in my eyes, those were circumstances of bad luck as they’ve realistically been racing deals. Was the criticism unfair? Absolutely. But, the bottom line of it has been that Kimball has had some disappointing finishes this season with results of 18th, 21st, 15th and eighth respectively.
