Ganassi’s Move to Honda Not All That Suprising

INDIANAPOLIS – On the surface, Chip Ganassi Racing’s move back to Honda starting with the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season is shocking.

Chevrolet Strong in Practice on Friday at Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN, NY – I wrote a few weeks ago that Honda would have a short reign on the Verizon IndyCar Series world in the coming weeks. Pocono and Texas were next up and were both two tracks that the Honda drivers could excel at – and they indeed did. They dominated the rain delayed Pocono race only to see a Chevy driver win. Then at Texas, they dominated again in a 1-2 photo finish. But, it would be short lived. The final two races of the season were on all-terrain road courses, and…

INDIANAPOLIS – If there’s any track that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series visits where the Chevrolet teams seem to have a huge advantage over Toyota and Ford, it has to be the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Despite Toyota winning for the first time ever at the 2.5-mile track a year ago, Chevy still has a huge advantage there.
