Chip Ganassi Racing was the first Verizon IndyCar Series team to hit the track in 2017, with all four of its drivers testing Thursday at Sebring International Raceway in central Florida.

The team was scheduled to test at Sebring on Dec. 9 but didn’t turn a wheel due to rain and wet track conditions. Mike Hull, the team’s managing director, called Thursday’s makeup test a very productive day and important since CGR is returning to Honda this season after three seasons with Chevrolet.

“We ran all four cars today, all day until dark,” Hull said. “Each car had a pretty large list individually. There were some common items on the list but a lot of individual items. Being a team with four cars and having a new product to test with this being our first test day with all four cars, we got a lot accomplished today. We learned an awful lot. We explored the opportunity we had to get it done today without any issues.
