The Verizon IndyCar Series will take to the 7/8-mile Iowa Speedway for Sunday’s Iowa Corn 300 (2 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network). After Saturday’s first practice session and qualifying to set the field for tomorrow’s race, it’s clear that Sunday’s winner will likely come from the Andretti Autosport, Team Penske or Chip Ganassi Racing camps. Shocker, I know.

Ganassi/Penske Camps Looking To Keep Chicagoland Strength

Both Team Penske and Chip Ganassi Racing are hoping to continue their recent Chicagoland Speedway success in Sunday’s Overton’s 400 (2:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). While the seven drivers between both teams have combined to make just one trip to victory lane through the first 16 races of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, they’ve been quick in recent memory at the 1.5-mile track that we’re racing at this weekend. Since 2011, Brad Keselowski has finished no worse than eighth in his last seven starts on the Joliet…

Chip Ganassi Racing Group Qualifies Well, But Finishes Haven’t Been There In Sonoma

The 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season hasn’t gone the way that Chip Ganassi Racing would have liked. We’re 15 races in and neither of the drivers have won a race yet. Jamie McMurray has finished outside the top 15 in 11 of those 15 races and Kyle Larson is coming off of a sub 25th place finish at his best track in Michigan. A win seemed like it could be in sight two weeks ago and now it’s packed back away again. But, if they can finish where…

Larson Surprisingly Struggling This Weekend In Michigan

Heading into this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Michigan International Speedway, everyone assumed that Kyle Larson and Chip Ganassi Racing would be the ones to beat. Larson, has been dominant in his four career Cup Series starts at Michigan. He’s won three of them, including all consecutively. His worst Cup finish on the 2-mile, D-Shaped oval is third. Back in Fontana, a track like Michigan, Larson brought his No. 42 Chevrolet home runner-up. Last weekend in Pocono, he finished second again. He heads to Michigan on the…

Michigan Can Be Ganassi’s Strength This Weekend

Lets be frank here, the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season hasn’t been the kindest to Chip Ganassi Racing. Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray have yet to visit victory lane through the first 14 races as the Larson has five finishes of 16th or worse and McMurray with 11. But, all that could change in Sunday’s race at the Michigan International Speedway. While Chevrolet has been down in power all season long, most credit of those struggles going to the new car, this could be the week that one…

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. But, here Scott Dixon is fourth in the standings and well within striking distance. That should be scary for the rest of the field. Chip Ganassi said on Fast Friday that he’s happy with where they are right now and they haven’t even entered their normal…
