Charlie Kimball and the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Team completed day one of the Prix View open test at Phoenix Raceway with 89 total laps and a top speed of 187.488 mph. Click here for photos from the first on-track sessions.
“It went pretty well,” Kimball said. “Changing to the Honda engine and aero kit–there’s so much we have to learn. I think I said before our first test with the Honda, you don’t know what you don’t know, until you do laps. It’s kind of the same thing here on an oval. We’ve done a whole day on a street circuit setup at Sebring then coming here, we’re still learning. We went through a lot of different things, a lot of different aero setups, mechanical setups, just trying a bunch of stuff.” To hear more from Kimball, watch below:
