Penske/Ganassi Have Struggled In Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

It would be a dream weekend for either Team Penske or Chip Ganassi Racing if they could win the Indy-Charlotte double in the same day. So far, it’s never happened. For some reason, as much success that Penske and Ganassi have had at Indy, they’ve struggled in the Coca-Cola 600 (6 p.m. ET/FOX/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Jamie McMurray for Ganassi does have three straight top 12 finishes at Charlotte, but he hasn’t been a true contender to win though. Plus, so far in 2018, McMurray hasn’t exactly had the most success.

Dixon, Jones Eyeing To End Chip Ganassi Racing’s Drought In Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network)

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s hard to believe, but as we head to Sunday’s 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) neither of the two Chip Ganassi Racing drivers have led a lap through the first five races of the Verizon IndyCar Series season.

Chip Ganassi said on Fast Friday that he’s happy with where they are right now and they haven’t even entered their normal…

527 Laps Have Been Run In 2018, Ganassi Has Led 0 Of Them, Pagenaud 3

INDIANAPOLIS – A main stat that sticks out to me when taking a step back and looking at the Verizon IndyCar Series season thus far has been just how quiet Chip Ganassi Racing has been in 2018. Out of the 527 laps run in the four races this year, CGR drivers have led a combined zero of them. That’s shocking. Penske has led the most at 195 circuits led with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports next with 133. Dale Coyne Racing also has led 103 laps led, all by Sebastien Bourdais. Andretti Autosport…

Dixon Eyeing 1st Barber Win, Jones Looking For 1st INDYCAR Victory

Zero. That’s the amount of laps led the Chip Ganassi Racing duo have led in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season. But, don’t take them too lightly through. If a little bit of luck went on their side, both Scott Dixon and his new teammate Ed Jones could very easily be the championship favorites right now. Dixon, has been very quiet out of the gates. But, he finished sixth and fourth respectively in the first two races of the season, and if not for an ill timed caution last weekend…

Chip Ganassi Racing Could See Both Cars Strong This Weekend in Richmond

The start to the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been quiet for both Chip Ganassi Racing drivers.

Team Penske, Chip Ganassi Racing Struggle In INDYCAR Season Opener at St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla – In the offseason, Team Penske and Chip Ganassi Racing shed three combined cars from their driver lineup. With a new car coming out for the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season, would having a lighter garage hurt them?

Team Penske had won seven of the last eight Firestone Grand Prix of St. Pete poles. They…

Ganassi Teammates Ed Jones, Scott Dixon Confident Heading Into Qualifying on Saturday

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla – Chip Ganassi Racing has just one career Verizon IndyCar Series win on the streets of St. Pete. In fact, Scott Dixon wasn’t the one to bring home the win either. That went to Dario Franchitti. Yes, Dixon has never won on the 1.8-mile Florida street course before. But, that could change in Sunday’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Pete (12:30 p.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) though.

Out of the current 15 tracks that the series will visit in 2018, Dixon has won at least one race on all but four of them. In fact, you really can’t count Portland because the series is making their first visit back to the Pacific Northwest track in over a decade and Dixon has made just two career starts there, scoring a pair of seventh place…

Chip Ganassi Racing Hoping For Addition By Subtraction For 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – For the first time since 2010, Chip Ganassi Racing is back as a two car Verizon IndyCar Series team. They also brought in a new driver in Ed Jones too and paired him with veteran driver Scott Dixon. But, for 2018, Ganassi is hoping it to be a season of addition by subtraction. The team expanded to a four car organization for 2011 when they brought in Graham Rahal and Charlie Kimball to complete the driver lineup. Unfortunately, in the seven seasons they ran four cars, it never really…
