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. Last year, Honda drivers led 129 of the 200 laps in the 100th Running of the event, and with an aerokit freeze in the offseason, there wasn’t much Chevrolet could do to close the gap between the two manufacturers on superspeedways since. Also in 2016, Honda drivers won two poles and three of the 16 races. Both feats were on superspeedways. They led only 110 total laps away from Indy, Pocono and Texas last year. Obviously, how…

Ganassi Drivers Not Happy Yet With Race Pace for Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS – After Honda pretty much put a whooping to the Chevy teams on superspeedway’s last year, I think with the aerokit freeze in the offseason as well as the addition of Chip Ganassi Racing too, everyone pretty much assumed this year’s Indianapolis 500 would be won by one of the four Ganassi drivers. They had a distinct advantage right? They obviously were well aware of where Chevy was lacking on the superspeedway side of things since they were on that side last year. Now, they get the Honda information and…

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s like the Target sponsored days are back on the Chip Ganassi Racing Verizon IndyCar Series side, as both the No. 9 Honda driven by Scott Dixon and the No. 10 Honda driven by his teammate Tony Kanaan will have the same sponsor this weekend at Long Beach. This time though, it’s obviously not a Target deal, as NTT Data will be the primary colors on both cars for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (4 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network). “This will be a bit of déjà vu…

Tony Kanaan Searching for 1st Long Beach Victory on Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS – Tony Kanaan has won a lot of big races during his 20 year Verizon IndyCar Series career. He’s reached victory lane 17 times, including the 2013 Indianapolis 500, to go along with the 2004 series championship. But, one thing he’s missing from his resume, a win on the streets of Long Beach. Kanaan, has made 13 starts in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach during his career, but the popular Brazilian driver has just five top fives in those races. Furthermore, he has just one podium in those…

Honda’s Lead Session 1 In IndyCar Testing at Barber on Tuesday, Chevy’s Top Session 2

Leeds, Ala – At the onset of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season, everyone assumed that Chevrolet would be the manufacturer to beat this year. Instead, two weeks ago, Honda had other thoughts in mind in the season opener at St. Pete. Honda was surprisingly quick from the get go and dominated that race weekend on the streets of St. Pete. How long would it last though? If today’s test at the Barber Motorsports Park is any indication, then it may last all year. In the opening session, Honda had five…
