    INDYCAR Adds Additional Practice Day to '500' Schedule

    Via IndianapolisMotorSpeedway.com April 14, 2014 INDYCAR announced today an addition to the practice schedule and further definition of the qualification format for next month’s 98th Running of the Indianapolis 500. The schedule change features an extra day of on-track activity with the addition of a Verizon IndyCar Series practice session on Monday, May 19. In March, INDYCAR announced an enhanced qualification format to increase the excitement level and on-track action during qualifications. The weekend will culminate on Sunday, May 18th with the Fast Nine Shootout, which will determine the coveted Indianapolis 500 pole position and the recipient of the Verizon P1 Award. The practice session on May 19th will be held from 12-5p.m. (EST) and the extra day of on-track action will be open to the public like any other practice day during May. Tickets for practice are available at just $15. “On Sunday teams will be completely focused on qualifying, so we added another practice session to give them a sufficient amount of time to test their race setups,” said Derrick Walker, INDYCAR President of Competition and Operations. “Previously a majority of teams have utilized most of Sunday for full-tank running, so it was important for us to continue to give them that opportunity after qualifications are complete.” “The addition of a post-qualifying practice will be beneficial to the teams as they prepare for the Indianapolis 500, and will also be an exciting, action-packed afternoon of track activity for fans,” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles. “We are also thankful to the many staff, businesses and the local law enforcement community for the cooperation in adding another new element to the Indianapolis 500 activities.” INDYCAR also confirmed an update to the qualification format that allows a competitor that suffers a hardship in qualifying at the conclusion of Saturday, May 17th an opportunity to make the starting field during Sunday qualifications. This revision would also permit teams that want to bring new entries forward after qualifying on Saturday an opportunity to compete for a position in the race. In both cases, these teams would be restricted to the last row of the field. To read more, please click here.

    Live from Trackside - Grand Prix of Long Beach

    Sunday, April 13 4:45 p.m. We’re not yet sure what exactly happened today with the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen Chevrolet car. We still need to get the car back and look over all of the data to figure out the exact problem. We started the race out exactly as we planned by picking up a lot of spots early and getting through the standing starts cleanly. From starting 19th to running sixth by the halfway point, it shows we had a strong car. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew did a great job in pit lane by getting me in and out quickly and just as the yellow fell. We had the right pace and the right tires to run a good race today, but it just didn’t go our way with mechanical issues. The team did a great job today and even though it wasn’t the best end to our weekend in Long Beach, I’m confident going into Barber in a few weeks. I'm staying in California for one more night before heading to Texas Motor Speedway with the team for testing on Wednesday. If you're near TMS, be sure to stop by!

    11:20 a.m. Happy race day! I felt more comfortable in the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car this morning during warm-up than I have all weekend... a good sign for the race for sure. We were able to sort a few things out with the setup last night and I think it's made a difference. There were lots of bits and pieces to consider at this track (a different Firestone Tire compound, racing with Chevy here for the first time, dampers, etc.) but with the combined experience and expertise of three other teammates, the Chip Ganassi Racing engineers and Team Chevy, I think we'll be ready to race once the green flag drops.

    Saturday, April 12 3:40 p.m. Well, we'll start from P19 tomorrow and will focus on moving up from there! It wasn’t the result that Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing would like for qualifying and we have some more work to do on the cars. I have a lot of confidence in my engineers and the crew that they’ll give me a really good car for the 80 laps tomorrow. The Chevrolets seem to be really good on the standing starts so I have a lot of confidence in that aspect of the race. We’ll come up with a great race package tonight and be ready to race from where we start. To start the day, I did a quick photo shoot for Diabetic Living magazine with my endocrinologist, Dr. Peters. Because she is the best (really, she is!), they are doing a big story on her for their fall issue. They were kind enough to include me as well! I always look forward to seeing Dr. Peters and having her expertise on hand at the track (and just a phone call away too, of course). [caption id="attachment_725" align="aligncenter" width="284"]Photo courtesy of Mark Harmel Photo, http://www.harmelphoto.com Photo courtesy of Mark Harmel Photo, http://www.harmelphoto.com[/caption] Since this is a "home" race, I've been able to say hello to a ton of friends and family throughout the race weekend. I've even seen some fellow Rio Mesa graduates ("Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan!"). I really can't thank everyone enough for the support! I'm off to a drivers' meeting then dinner with my parents. Early bed time tonight! Tune in tomorrow at 4 p.m. Eastern (1 p.m. Pacific) to catch the race on NBC Sports Network.

Thanks to all of the fans for coming out on a Friday. Just finished up with an autograph session, and met lots of fun locals and fans who traveled here too. I think our two practice sessions were a good starting point for our first day in Long Beach. We didn’t end up putting a new set of tires on the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen Chevrolet, when most of the field did. We’re really looking forward to having a new set of tires ready to go start out the day tomorrow and then we’ll hopefully be able to gain quite a few spots in qualifying by saving our tires for the right time. I think we’ve already made the car quite a bit better than it was this morning, so we’ll just come out tomorrow ready to go! IMG_0067 IMG_0068 IMG_0070 9:15 a.m. It's another beautiful morning in Long Beach! I just finished up with a drivers/team managers meeting. We had a good couple of hours to spend with the engineering group yesterday before the track walk. Even though the actual layout is similar from year to year, the track surface and curbs do change a bit on a street course like this. It always helps to get that first-hand look at the track before getting into the car for practice. Speaking of practice, I'm about to suit up for our first session at 10. Catch live timing and scoring via Race Control. To get an inside look into my recent hospital visits, check out the Orange County Register and Long Beach Press Telegram! Thursday, April 10 8:15 a.m. Good morning from Long Beach! After St. Petersburg, I had a few days of meetings and work at the shop before heading out to the Best Coast to spend some time with family and friends at the beach. It was really nice to have some downtime, but I'm ready to be back in the car for sure! I came down to Long Beach yesterday for a couple of appearances with Novo Nordisk at local hospitals--Miller Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital of LA. I'm headed to Children's Hospital of Orange County and the Allen Diabetes Center in Newport Beach today, with engineering meetings and the track walk in between. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team is working hard to bounce back from a very educational first race at St. Petersburg, and I know that the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car will be much quicker in Long Beach. I’m really excited to see the Chevy power through the streets of Long Beach and to see what we can do here as a team. It’s always exciting to go back to the Grand Prix of Long Beach as a competitor, because I spent so many years attending the race with my father as a spectator. It’s just a special feeling to be back in my home state of California and to be supported by so many of my friends and family. This race holds so much prestige and tradition and I’m just happy that I get to be a part of it. Here's our race weekend schedule (all times Pacific/local): Friday, April 11 10 a.m Practice 2 p.m. Practice 4 p.m. Autograph session (in the IndyCar paddock; open to the public) Saturday, April 12 10 a.m. Practice 11:45 a.m. Q&A at the Team Chevy booth (in the Lifestyle Expo/convention center) 1:15 p.m. Qualifying Sunday, April 13 9 a.m. Warm-up 1 p.m. Grand Prix of Long Beach race (live on NBCSN) Live timing and scoring for all on-track sessions available via Race Control. 2013 IndyCar Long Beach

    Grand Prix driver tames diabetes along with road courses

    Via Orange County Register April 12, 2014 ORANGE – The brown-haired, brown-eyed boy in a green Transformers T-shirt sat cross-legged in the middle of his hospital bed. The room was quiet. Jonathan Aranivia stacked Legos to build the base of a spaceship, an IV tube snaking from the inside of his left arm and two bandages bookending a faded temporary tattoo of a cartoon character on his right. He sipped a diet soda through a straw between snapping blocks into place. He was also expecting a visitor who’d bring hope. Two days earlier, Jonathan of Pico Rivera had been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. His body was failing to produce insulin. He was being cared for at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Doctors told him his diet would have to change: no sugary soft drinks, less candy, less “fun stuff.” They said he’d need to learn how to check his blood sugar with finger pricks and help his body convert food to energy with daily injections of insulin. His mother, Tahtiana Keel, is still overwhelmed by Tuesday’s news, tears rolling from her tired eyes when she starts to talk about it. She wants to tell her son that everything will be OK, that they’ll manage it together and that his new normal will result in a long, healthy life. But she couldn’t see what that would be like until a woman drew open the curtain on their side of the dimly lit room. At the foot of Jonathan’s bed stood a 5-foot-10, fit, slender, 29-year-old man with strawberry blond hair and tight beard. He wore a racing-team navy polo shirt and gray slacks. He had thrill-seeker eyes and a big, electric smile. “Hi, Jonathan, I’m Charlie, and I drive race cars,” said Charlie Kimball, who will compete Sunday in the 40th Long Beach Grand Prix, a Verizon IndyCar Series race.

    Charlie Kimball makes new fans at Miller Children's Hospital

    Via Long Beach Press Telegram April 11, 2014 Racecar drivers have their own pre-race rituals. Some isolate themselves to block out all distractions, some prefer to go out and blow off steam a few nights before the action. Charlie Kimball has a pre-race ritual, too. He heads to the local hospital. That’s exactly what he did Wednesday afternoon in Long Beach, spending the second half of his day with the patients and staff at Miller Children’s Hospital. If that sounds like a unique way of getting prepared for a race — and it is — it’s because Kimball is a unique racer, having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes seven years ago, at the age of 22. “I had a lot of fun,” said Kimball of his trip to Miller. “It’s always neat to get that chance to interact when you’re in town.” Kimball visited the hospital last year as well, and has made a habit of stopping in to talk to local kids around the country. He admitted it’s a little different way of getting focused. “It’s fulfilling for me,” he said. “The job I do on the track is very similar to other drivers — put my helmet on and go to work. But because having diabetes is so personal to me, the work I do as a driver with diabetes rather than just an IndyCar driver, it’s important to me.” To read more, please click here.

    Kimball finds traction in adversity

    Via Orange County Register April 9, 2014 The dashboard in Charlie Kimball’s race car is just a little different than those of his competitors. “It’s all right there together: speed, lap time, oil, blood sugar, water levels…” Kimball is more than just a driver. He’s an innovator. He’s a role model. He’s an anomaly. Kimball is the first licensed IndyCar racer to suffer from Type 1 diabetes, which he was diagnosed with in 2007. He will compete in his fourth Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday. And while he’s in Long Beach, Kimball will continue to walk both paths that he has laid out for himself: being a competitive driver and motivating others to overcome their own personal barriers. Kimball paid a visit to Miller Children’s Hospital pavilion on Wednesday. Kimball’s ailment has transformed itself from an impediment into a springboard. Talk about finding a silver lining. “I believe that I’m a better athlete and driver because of diabetes. It forced me to be better prepared physically and better with my nutrition.” To read more, please click here.

    Novo Nordisk Fights to Strong Finish in St. Petersburg

    Via ChipGanassiRacing.com March 31, 2014 - Results (with starting pos.) from the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg 1. (4) No. 12 Power, Chevrolet 2. (3) No. 28 Hunter-Reay, Honda 3. (10) No 3. Castroneves, Chevrolet 20. (20) Charlie Kimball, No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen Chevrolet Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing (NNCGR) driver Charlie Kimball finished 20th at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on the streets of St. Petersburg. The NNCGR team saw difficulties ranging from mechanical issues to less than ideal track conditions throughout the weekend. The No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car experienced a spin in the last turn of the 1.8-mile temporary street circuit during qualifying on Saturday afternoon, which would place Kimball in the 20th position in the starting lineup for the 110-lap race on Sunday.

    Live from Trackside - Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

    Sunday, March 30 6:30 p.m. Starting and finishing 20th wasn't the plan today, but I learned  a lot throughout the race. It was encouraging that we had that much pace in the car but it was obviously disappointing that we had some mechanical issues early in the race. We lost quite a bit of ground dealing with those throttle issues. Overall though the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen crew really fought hard today and had some really clean pit stops. I have complete faith in the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew and the Chevrolet team that they’ll figure out the issue we faced today and get us ready to have a great race in Long Beach. IMG_0064 11:30 a.m. We had a pretty good warm-up session. We went out right at the green flag and immediately came in for a few pit stop practices--nice job by the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing guys. We also worked on a few different things for fuel which will help with our strategy later today. As we get going, we'll just focus on consistency to get the best result possible. 9:15 a.m. Good morning... it's RACE DAY! I love saying that, especially after a long off-season. It's a beautiful day in St. Petersburg. Unlike the past few days, the sun is shining and the sky is blue. So that means we'll have to plan for different conditions for the race today than we were dealing with for practice and qualifying. We'll be smart at the start of the race--it's always a bit crazy in Turn One here so we'll definitely try to stay away from that. Then we'll just do our best to stay on the right strategy and work our way up! Warm-up begins at 9:45 a.m. Eastern... catch live timing and scoring HERE. Saturday, March 29 8:45 p.m. Qualifying didn’t go exactly according to plan, but the whole No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen crew is excited for the race tomorrow. We are a resilient group and I know we’ll bounce back. We’ll make some changes tonight and develop a plan for tomorrow and be ready to go at green flag. Just finished up with a really great dinner with some Novo Nordisk and Ganassi friends. Always enjoy spending time with them during race weekends. Now, it's off to bed! Thanks for the support. 3:40 p.m. IndyCar just sent out an update... if the weather cooperates, we'll qualify at 5 p.m. Eastern. Thanks to all of the fans here in St. Pete for sticking it out with us! And thanks to those at home for following along. The No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car will be ready to go! Blog1 2:10 p.m. Well, we are definitely on a weather delay here in St. Pete. We've had some severe weather alerts in the area so fans and teams have taken cover while we wait it out. Firestone tires are the best in the business, but I'm not sure even their rain tires would help us out too much right now! Assuming we don't get to qualify today, tomorrow's race will be set by the 2013 entrant points. So, we'd start 10th. For now, the delay gives us more time with the engineers and team. If you haven't done so already, be sure to read this piece from today's Tampa Bay Times on the relationship between drivers and engineers. Thanks to Jim for talking to me and my engineer Brad! 11:45 a.m. Unfortunately we didn't quite have the right setup for morning practice but I think with Ryan topping the chart, we'll have some good data to look at and learn from before qualifying. The weather is a big unknown at the moment--the forecast is showing rain and storms for this afternoon, so we'll have to adjust as the time comes. Check out live timing and scoring HERE for qualifying at 2 p.m. Eastern. I'm in Group 2 for Round 1. Blog2 8:30 a.m. Starting out day two well-rested and ready to go for qualifying! We'll be in group two along with Dixon, so we'll be able to work together there a bit. Hopefully with the rain the track comes back grip-wise. As we get closer to qualifying later today, we'll be paying close attention to the weather forecast and see how that plays out. For qualifying we'll work to max the alternate tires and make the most of what we have. Follow along all day via Race Control at IndyCar.com! Friday, March 28 4:00 p.m. We had a really good first day. The No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car made a lot of progress and we got some great data from our teammates. I have full confidence that we’ll come back tomorrow strong. For now, I have a pretty open afternoon which means more time in the engineering office! Blog3 Blog4 12:45 p.m. Grabbing a quick lunch before we head back out! We didn't quite get everything accomplished that we wanted to in practice 1, but I'm confident moving forward that we'll be making gains in practice 2. We came back and looked at the data for the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car, as well as the 8, 9 and 10 cars, so we have some good information to go on. We'll go out for this next session looking to move up the time sheet and learn for qualifying tomorrow.

    Thursday, March 27 1:00 p.m. Good afternoon from St. Petersburg! I made a visit to WTSP-TV Studio 10 this morning to chat with host Jerome Ritchey. He closely follows IndyCar racing so he’s always a lot of fun to talk to before we get the race weekend started. To check out the segment, click here. After a quick breakfast, I’ve been spending time at the track with my engineers before the track walk later today. We always say it's a long off-season, but with it being such a tough winter in Indy, I'm more than ready to be back at a race track. That said, the whole Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team worked really hard throughout the off-season at the shop, in the gym, in the engineering office, to get us ready. With the additions of Ryan and Tony, we have just that much more experience and data to draw from, along with Scott's championship-winning team. It's been great working with Team Chevy in just the few tests we've had so far, and I think we can only build from here. I've had my ups and downs here at St. Pete, but we've always had the speed. We'll work on getting the right setup for qualifying from the start, and I know the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen car will be fast during the race. Thanks for the support throughout the off-season! Can’t wait to meet you at the track this season. Don’t forget to follow @racewithinsulin on Twitter… my Pit Lane Reporter (PLR) is back for updates during on-track sessions!

    Race engineers also serve as driver's chief psychologist

    Via Tampa Bay Times March 28, 2014 ST. PETERSBURG — A race engineer for an IndyCar series team has to have great mechanical skills, knowledge of the latest technology and the willingness to work long hours. So engineering is your obvious college major for that career path, and that's all you need to worry about, right? "Psychology," Brad Goldberg said. Goldberg has been the race engineer for Charlie Kimball's No. 83 IndyCar for Chip Ganassi Racing since the driver's 2011 arrival in the series. "People ask, 'What do you do as a race engineer?' My first comment is chief psychologist," Goldberg said. "Why? Fundamentally, the driver is telling me a feeling, what he's feeling in the car. So I have to get in his head to understand exactly, 'What is he saying?' " "He can look at the data and see what I'm thinking, what I'm feeling," Kimball said. "Then I understand because of our conversations all weekend, I know what he's thinking and what he needs from me on the racetrack." Working on a driver's mental state, then, is a big part of the job.

    Barber showers bring Team Chevy powers

    The Verizon IndyCar Series open test went well earlier this week. It was a little unfortunate about the weather being damp and cool and to not get as much running as we would have liked, but we still made the most of it and definitely took some steps forward.

    We'll get four Chevy V6 twin turbos to use all season. Race engine number one was in the car at the open test and it ran great (more about their 2014 engines here). We are really excited to be a part of Team Chevy. While at Barber, I got a chance to hear a little about what Chevy Performance has coming down the pipeline in the coming years, both in their street cars and their race programs. We're enjoying working with Ilmor, Pratt and Miller as well as Chevrolet Racing.

    We may have missed getting the best lap time when the track was at its best, as it was cool and damp toward the end of the day, but overall the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen team is excited about heading into St. Pete... I know the whole Chip Ganassi Racing team is ready to go!

    The season opener is coming up quickly and I'm not complaining one bit! To hear more about the upcoming season, listen to last night's interview with Drafting the Circuits here.
