IN CK’S WORDS
“It’s my favorite time of year… May in Indianapolis! I’m ready to move into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and continue working toward our goals on track. It’s no secret we’ve had a rough start to the season, so this is our chance to turn things around. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team had a super solid race car last year, starting from the front row, so we’ll be taking what we can learn from that and seeing where we can improve. Last year’s cooler temperature on race day really threw us through a loop. The weather is always something we can’t control, so it’s how we react and adjust that counts.”
