    SUNDAY, APRIL 23 RESULTS Warmup: P18, 1:48.7621 Race: P15 RACE STATS Finishing position: 15th Starting position: 15th Laps led: 11 Pit stops: 4 Average speed: 108.248 mph Cautions: 2 for 7 laps total Lead changes: 8 among 5 drivers Championship standing: 20th IN CK'S WORDS "Overall we tried an alternate strategy and I don’t know if it gained us many spots, but it was worth the effort for sure. I think without the length of that last yellow, we definitely had the speed in the 83 car to go forward and pass some of those guys who were trying to save fuel. It’s too bad we didn’t have a dry warm-up this morning, because we could’ve validated some of the changes we made overnight. We obviously found a lot of speed compared to qualifying yesterday – I think my fast lap was well within the top 10 today. The pit stops were great – we definitely made up ground there. I’m proud of the guys’ efforts getting through these first few races with me. We have some momentum now heading into the Phoenix and then hopefully that will get even stronger heading into the month of May."

SATURDAY, APRIL 22 RESULTS Practice 3: P18, 1:07.9375 Qualifying: P15, 1:07.7033 IN CK'S WORDS "We just missed it a little bit on balance going to the Firestone alternates. We just didn’t quite have the lap time out of the car that I thought we could’ve had, but overall I’m frustrated for the guys because they worked so hard this weekend. I think the No. 83 Tresiba Honda was better yesterday afternoon and we just didn’t quite get it right today. We’ll make it better for warm-up tomorrow and then ideally have a smart clean race, stay out of trouble, settle into a rhythm, and let the race come to us."

FRIDAY, APRIL 21 RESULTS Practice 1: P19, 1:09.0779 Practice 2: P6, 1:08.1996 IN CK'S WORDS "The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team made some good changes between sessions today. I could tell within the first lap or two that the car was a lot better this afternoon. It was really night and day from the first session. This morning we were working from data picked up from the test last month, but the grip level changed a lot. We made a damper change and found a good amount of speed. I’m confident the No. 83 team will come back tomorrow for another strong qualifying." FROM PIT LANE IMG_0401 Click here to view more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA and INDYCAR.

    Kimball: Time to move on, bank results that match No. 83 team's pace

    Via NBC Sports First-lap incidents in the first two races of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season have left Charlie Kimball and the No. 83 Tresiba Honda team reeling and in need of a simple, clean weekend at this weekend’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, NBCSN). Kimball’s one of six drivers in the 21-driver field who has qualified in the top-10 in both races so far, with ninth at St. Petersburg and seventh at Long Beach two very solid runs. In fact the Long Beach grid position is the best of his seven-year, 100-plus start career on street courses, supplanting an eighth at Detroit race one last year. To read more, please click here.

It’s just so unique. It’s always up and down, literally and figuratively, at Barber—the highs and lows of the elevation plus both high speed and low speed corners. Trying to master both is what makes it a challenge and can make or break your weekend. We had really good practice and qualifying sessions in Long Beach, making improvements every time we went out. Sooner or later, our luck with change and things will fall into place. More than anything, I’m ready to reward the 83 team for all of their hard work day in and day out. As always, we’ll keep our heads down and focused on our own goals." [caption id="attachment_3864" align="aligncenter" width="626"] Photo via INDYCAR[/caption]

    Live from the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

    SUNDAY, APRIL 9 RESULTS Warm-up: P9, 1:07.4733 Race: P21 RACE STATS Finishing position: 21st Starting position: 7th Cautions: 3 for a total of 11 laps Lead changes: 6 among 3 drivers Championship standing: 21st Notes: The No. 83 car was involved in an incident with car No. 12 on lap one at turn 4. Damage sustained to the No. 83 car forced the team to retire early. IN CK'S WORDS "To say I am frustrated with how today’s race went would be an understatement. I thought I was clear of the 12 but I obviously wasn’t. He turned me and put me in the wall pretty heavy. I am really disappointed for the guys – they worked so hard to get the car to a good place for today’s race. The No. 83 Tresiba Honda was fast and I thought we had a lot of potential for a solid result in today’s race." FROM PIT LANE Click here for more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA and INDYCAR. SATURDAY, APRIL 8 RESULTS Practice 3: P12, 1:07.5470 Qualifying: P7, 1:06.5404 IN CK'S WORDS "Obviously after yesterday I am really pleased to qualify seventh today. I think we made the car a lot better overnight which showed this morning. We were able to make some more improvements for qualifying, so pretty happy with that but being within a hundredth of making the Firestone Fast 6 is a new version of frustrating. I think tomorrow we should have a good car, put together clean stops a clean race through the first couple laps, and settle into a rhythm. I know my guys will get the job done really well in pit lane; we just have to put the laps together and get the fuel mileage we need and see where we end up at the end of the day."

I know the 83 team is going to work hard tonight to figure out what’s going on and be ready for tomorrow. We found a little bit of speed at the end there, but we weren’t on fresh tires so we’ll look at it. I’ve got a little bit to learn overnight, and it’s nice to have fast teammates with Scott and Tony being a little quicker. We’ll look at their data and learn from that. I’m a little frustrated because I always want to come out and start Friday off right but as Dario says, it’s all about recovery."

Following along with this year’s INDYCAR theme of “NEXT,” the computer-generated images are the next evolution of the car’s development process and provide more detail than concept sketches released in January.

    Ganassi gets reacquainted with Honda on famous Indy oval

    Via IndyCar.com It’s been four years since Scott Dixon drove a Honda-powered Chip Ganassi Racing car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and he’s nine years removed from winning the Indianapolis 500 with that engine manufacturer. So while the setting was familiar on an unseasonably warm Friday in March, this wasn’t just another test session for Dixon or Ganassi teammates Tony Kanaan, Charlie Kimball and Max Chilton. The much-publicized offseason engine switch from Chevrolet means Chip Ganassi Racing has been playing catch-up. To read more, please click here.
