    Thanking firefighter, finishing 10th, makes Kimball's day at Long Beach

    Via IndyCar.com Charlie Kimball had a memorable day at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach – on and off the racetrack. In addition to scoring Carlin’s first top-10 finish in just its third start in the Verizon IndyCar Series, the 33-year-old Californian welcomed a firefighter who battled the Thomas Fire that damaged much of Ventura County in suburban Los Angeles, including much of the Kimball family’s avocado ranch, in December. Mike Fuller, who works at Station 54 in Ventura County, was one of 8,500 firefighters who combated California’s largest wildfire in history, which spread over 283,000 acres. An avid racing fan who had attended previous Long Beach races, Fuller brought nephews Jace, 3, and Harrison, 11, to Long Beach on Sunday. The chance to meet Kimball and the AMR INDYCAR Safety Team at the Carlin transporter before the race made for a one-of-a-kind experience. To read more, please click here.

I’ve had some success there in the past, and we have a little data from the open test last month to get us up to speed when the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet rolls out for practice one. Barber is unique with its elevation and technical demands, and it really requires some patience to make your moves at the right time and place. Last weekend’s top-10 was a big morale-booster for everyone on the Carlin team, myself included. I think if we can carry this momentum throughout the weekend and make some progress in qualifying, we can definitely put ourselves in a good spot at the checkered flag on Sunday."

We just keep making progress and it’s nice to finally be able to have a result to show for it. It was awesome to see how hard the team worked to put together a good race car, and I can honestly say that the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet was the best car I’d had around here. We got a little lucky with yellows, but we’ll take some luck with a new team building our foundation in INDYCAR. A lot of credit to the guys though – they’ve worked so hard since October to make this happen. A top-10 finish is a start, and hopefully moving forward we can qualify better so we don’t have to work so hard to get back into the top-10."

SATURDAY, APRIL 14 RESULTS Practice 3: P20, 1:08.0696 Qualifying: P23, 1:09.7481 IN CK'S WORDS "I’m really disappointed, honestly, because we made such good progress this morning. I felt really good about the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet after this morning’s session, but we just struggled to get any good lap times out of the tires and find any grip. We’ll go back and figure out what it needs for the race and dial up the strategy. There’s always something going on around here as far as yellows, strategies, and fuel, so I’m optimistic. Max did a really nice job in qualifying, so we’ll go back and compare our data to see where we need to be for tomorrow."

FRIDAY, APRIL 13 RESULTS Practice 1: P22, 1:10.001 Practice 2: P20, 1:10.1694 IN CK'S WORDS "We worked through a lot of changes today. Max was pretty good this morning, so we went more his direction with the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet. We had a couple of issues in the first practice, but we got those cleaned up for the second practice and introduced a few new issues in the second practice that we’ll need to fix overnight. We had a yellow flag on what was going to be my best lap early in the second session. We can learn from what we did today and get everything ready to go for qualifying tomorrow. I think the conditions tomorrow are going to be pretty similar to today and then cooler on race day, so we’ll just have to adjust best as we can and move forward from there."

The No. 23 team made a lot of progress from race one to race two, and even more from the green to checkered last weekend in Phoenix.

Part of it is that the conditions are a little bit easier and everyone is going quicker as the track temps cool down. We didn’t roll off the trucks setup-wise exactly where we wanted to be, so we’re just trying to get the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet back to where it needs to be for tonight’s practice. This last practice is going to be really important for getting ready for tomorrow night’s race with the conditions being similar to race conditions. We just have to keep making forward progress and make the car better, because anything can happen over 250 laps."

It's nice that we have some track data from the open test in February, so we'll be using what we learned to quickly get up to speed as soon as we arrive in the desert. Since the checkered flag in St. Pete, we've had just one day on track, testing at Barber, but we've really worked to maximize every single lap as a learning opportunity.

    Kimball welcomes chance to help steer Carlin

    Via Motorsport.com Charlie Kimball says that the switch to rookie IndyCar squad Carlin Racing, from one of the series superteams, Chip Ganassi Racing, offers him a great opportunity to grow. Carlin has become one of the legendary teams in junior formulas in Europe over the past 20 years, but it was 2015 when it first expanded to America with an Indy Lights team. The squad has won 12 races in the Lights series over the past three years, took Ed Jones to the drivers’ title in 2016, and this year has graduated to the Verizon IndyCar Series.

    Charlie Kimball feels right back at home with Carlin Racing

    Via NBC Sports Charlie Kimball was just 20 years old when he began racing for Trevor Carlin in 2005 in British Formula 3. Fast forward 13 years and the now 33-year-old Kimball has reunited once again with Carlin, who owns Carlin Racing, one of three new teams to enter the Verizon IndyCar Series for the 2018 season. “It feels like coming home, honestly,” Kimball told NBC Sports on Wednesday. “Racing for Trevor back in 2005 was one of the greater experiences of my young racing career at that point.” Kimball spent that season driving for Carlin Motorsport in British Formula 3, earning five wins and finishing second in the championship to teammate Alvaro Parente.

    Via IndyCar.com The Verizon IndyCar Series may be on a four-week hiatus from races, but the competition never stops. Beginning today at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, Indy cars are slated to test five times in the next 10 days – with the following four days at Indianapolis Motor Speedway – in a late-March rush of series open and engine manufacturer testing. Two days on the IMS oval – an open test on Tuesday, March 27 and an Indy 500 rookie orientation and veteran refresher day on Wednesday, March 28 – will stream live on IndyCar.com and INDYCAR’s YouTube channel.

At Carlin, you don’t come to the track to finish 19th and 20th, our goal really is to be fighting for race wins and podiums. We came into this weekend with limited knowledge and experience in the series, but I’d say we probably doubled or even tripled our knowledge on the Indy cars here in St. Pete. I’m looking forward to going back and getting with the engineers, learning, digesting, and figuring out what we need to do in the future. We’ve got a couple of tests before the Phoenix race and we tested there a few weeks back, so I know that we’ll be more competitive at the next race and continue to work our way forward."

The No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet has run without any mechanical issues this whole race weekend so far and that’s a credit to the work of Trevor (Carlin), Colin (Hale), and all the mechanics at Carlin. We’re making progress, we’re learning. With new bodywork, there’s a lot to learn aerodynamically and mechanically for everyone. We’re making good progress and we’re learning quickly.

When you’re starting from scratch informationally, any time you do a lap you make progress. We actually made quite a bit of progress today and we learned a lot. We have a good direction to head tomorrow and obviously tomorrow is when it counts with qualifying, so we need to try and maximize the setup on the car. I know the guys at Carlin have already made a monumental effort to have such a trouble-free day on our first day at a race track for a race and I know tonight we’ll work to make it even better for tomorrow.” FROM PIT LANE [caption id="attachment_4633" align="aligncenter" width="626"]Photo courtesy of Bucher Photos Photo courtesy of Bucher Photos[/caption]
