    SUNDAY, AUGUST 20 RESULTS Race: P16 RACE STATS Finishing position: 16th Starting position: 3rd Pit stops: 7 Average speed: 183.28 mph Cautions: 3 for 17 laps total Lead changes: 42 Total race passes: 590 Championship standing: 17th IN CK'S WORDS "I’m really disappointed. I think the car had more in it than our results show. We had a mistake on that first pit stop but we recovered well from that, then got caught up in other people’s mess. That’s what happens when you run back there. At the end of the day, though, we didn’t have the car to keep moving forward. We were just kind of hanging out; the balance wasn’t there. It was really disappointing and frustrating, especially having so many friends from Novo Nordisk here today. Qualifying third, running that first stint in fourth, a great restart in the middle of the race… all of it makes this result that much harder to swallow."

SATURDAY, AUGUST 19 RESULTS Practice 1: P13, 217.05 mph Qualifying: P3, 219.369 mph (2-lap average) Practice 3: P18, 213. 916 mph IN CK'S WORDS "I honestly didn't expect our run to be that good. I'm really proud of that effort from the whole crew. Everyone from Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing really put their heads down between practice and qualifying and made some pretty significant changes that put us right there in the window. Having watched the 10 car run before us I knew the speed was there, we just had to go out and get it. Honestly I'm relieved with how much better the car was and I'm just really proud of my guys."

Pocono Raceway is such a unique track, by design. You really have to tackle each of its three corners very differently, which is what makes it so challenging. That aspect plus the 500 miles equals a rewarding race when you can get it all right." [caption id="attachment_4261" align="aligncenter" width="626"] Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA.[/caption]

The car was on a knife edge and I wasn’t confident enough in the car to really make the most out of it when we had clear track. We fought traffic a lot, but that’s what happens when you qualify mid-pack. Really a frustrating day. The bright spot was definitely the guys in pit lane. They work so hard day in and day out. I’m glad they’ll be getting a couple of weekends off now moving forward. I hope they can relax and get some time with their families, because when we come back to Pocono we’re going to be hungrier than ever."

SATURDAY, JULY 29 RESULTS Practice 3: P12, 1:04.8202 Qualifying: P13, 1:04.9930 IN CK'S WORDS "Pretty disappointed with qualifying, honestly. We made some big improvements this morning and then we seemed to lose our way a little bit this afternoon. We were within about three hundredths off transferring through to the top 12, which would’ve given us another shot to make the car better. I know there’s more in it for tomorrow, but we missed it a little bit, I missed it a little bit. The nice thing is that we have two sets of Firestone alternates, sticker alternates, plus the scrubbed set from qualifying to use tomorrow. We just need a little bit of strategy and I think we'll have every opportunity to finish up front." FROM PIT LANE IMG_0758 Click here for more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA and INDYCAR. FRIDAY, JULY 28 RESULTS Practice 1: P18, 1:05.7952 Practice 2: P15, 1:05.2065 IN CK'S WORDS "Overall it wasn’t a good day at all for the No. 83 car. We missed the setup a little bit and we missed the timing. We really could’ve used that little bit of track time we lost this afternoon with the rain to get the car a little better. The nice thing is that the 9 car is quick, so we'll have their data to learn from. I’m really encouraged by the stops in pit stop practice – the guys really crushed it today. We’ll carry that momentum forward to figure out what we need to do to qualify well tomorrow and finish up front on Sunday."

It’s such a staple on the IndyCar calendar for both drivers and fans. The atmosphere is more like a backyard barbecue or tailgate, with so many people camping and having picnics on the hillsides while watching the race. As for the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team, we’ve had a few strong qualifying sessions at Mid-Ohio, making it into the Firestone Fast 6 these past few years, so we’ll try to keep that going. It’s great to see the continued support from Honda at this event too. With the right strategy, a fast car and maybe a bit of luck, hopefully we can see the No. 83 Tresiba Honda on the podium this weekend."

    Kimball predicts "incredible" IndyCar race on resurfaced Gateway

    Via Motorsport.com Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda driver Charlie Kimball says the repaving work on the 1.25-mile oval at Gateway Motorsports Park will create a great race for the Verizon IndyCar Series. Kimball turned the first ceremonial laps on the new track surface that track owner and CEO Curtis Francois called for following several instances of cut tires during the IndyCar test in early May. After driving a Honda Accord street car around the track in Madison, Ill., Kimball told IndyCar.com: “I think it's awesome. The investment made to repave and update the surface is significant. "The fact that we're coming back in August to a much smoother racetrack than we tested on is going to create a lot better racing for Verizon IndyCar Series cars under the lights."

    Kimball takes first laps on new Gateway surface

    Via IndyCar.com Though the St. Louis area was under an extreme heat advisory, that did not stop Verizon IndyCar Series driver Charlie Kimball from getting a sneak peek of the newly paved Gateway Motorsports Park racetrack. Kimball, who drives the No. 83 Tresiba Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing and tested at the track at the series’ open test in early May, was on hand today to take the ceremonial first lap on the new asphalt, which will undergo final touches prior to an Aug. 3 team and tire test ahead of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline race weekend Aug. 25-26. "It’s fantastic to be able to see the racetrack and see it in progress and be able to appreciate the crew that is laying the asphalt in a 98-, 100-degree day," Kimball said. "It’s pretty special. It’s great to get the excitement going about the race in August here in late July." To read more, please click here.

    Charlie Kimball to visit Gateway on Thursday

    Via NBC Sports Motor Sports Talk Chip Ganassi Racing’s Charlie Kimball will visit Gateway Motorsports Park on Thursday for a media appearance and will take a ceremonial lap of the repaved 1.25-mile oval. Following a test in early May that saw several cars suffer cut tires, Gateway officials opted to completely repave the facility ahead of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline on August 26. The project began after the June 17 Drivin’ for Linemen 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and was completed earlier this week. To read more, please click here.

I felt like we were behind the eight ball all weekend. We were making positive changes to the car, but we weren’t seeing the improvements on track during practice or qualifying. The race just didn’t play out for our strategy and we didn’t catch the yellow we needed. Regardless it was nice to have the Novo Nordisk Honda up front for a few laps. We’ll just refocus and head to Mid-Ohio where the 83 car has some good memories." FROM PIT LANE Click here to view more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA and INDYCAR. SATURDAY, JULY 15 RESULTS Practice 3: P18, 1:00.7340 Qualifying: P17, 00:59.9820 IN CK'S WORDS "Honestly kind of a frustrating session. If we would’ve run that lap time in the second group, we would have advanced to the top 12 but instead we’re on the ninth row. It’s going to be a long day tomorrow. I think the Firestone alternates aren’t holding up quite as long as the Firestone primaries, so that’ll definitely play into what we do strategy-wise. We’ve got to work the strategy and take advantage of the opportunities that are in front of us. We’re making the car better, but we just didn’t find as much lap time as we were hoping to find."

FRIDAY, JULY 14 RESULTS Practice 1: P20, 1:02.8693 Practice 2: P18, 1:01.5214 IN CK'S WORDS "Honestly we're just struggling for lap time at the moment. The car's not great, but we seem to make it better and not go a lot quicker. I'm pretty frustrated, but the nice thing is we've got Scott's data to look at tonight. We'll learn from that and make sure the No. 83 Novo Nordisk Honda is fast tomorrow." FROM PIT LANE IMG_0712

    How engineers make the Indy cars fast so drivers can race them

    Via The Toronto Star  It will be the drivers who’ll get most of the attention when the Honda Indy Toronto rolls into Exhibition Place this weekend – and rightly so. They’re the ones out there risking their lives. But, as they’ll be the first to acknowledge, they can’t do what they do on their own. How fast they go and how well they do depends on the efforts of a whole team, as well on their own skills. And the other key player in that team is their race engineer. Just what does a race engineer do? To find out I asked Todd Malloy, a 20-year veteran on the IndyCar circuit. Full disclosure: that last name is not a coincidence. Todd, I’m proud to say, is my son.
