Ganassi Cars Lead IndyCar Practice at Texas

FORT WORTH, TX – I wrote earlier in the week that the Chip Ganassi Racing cars would be the ones to beat this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway.

INDIANAPOLIS – Everyone loves a good Cinderella story. This year, with it being the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, an underdog winning the big race would get the same amount of pub as a No. 16 seed winning over a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Now, don’t get me wrong, all of these 33 drivers are better than a No. 16 seed in the NCAA Tournament as they all have a great amount of talent and deserve to be here.

INDIANAPOLIS – Two weeks ago, Gabby Chaves didn’t have a ride for the Indianapolis 500.

INDIANAPOLIS – All week long, it’s been the dominance of Andretti Autosport at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway stealing the headlines. Entering today, there’s been two days of practice for the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, and the five Andretti drivers have dominated both days. But on Thursday, they got some company.
