    Diabetes diagnosis was 'speed bump, not road block' for Indy car driver

    Via Del Mar Times When Charlie Kimball was first diagnosed with diabetes, he had little understanding of what it even was. “I had no knowledge,” he said from his home in Indianapolis. “I had no family history of it and was very lean and healthy, yet when I was diagnosed I had lost 25 pounds in five days.” Making the diagnosis even more troubling for the 29-year-old was the fact that Kimball is a professional athlete — an Indy car driver who competes in the Verizon IndyCar Series with Chip Ganassi Racing, to be precise. Kimball thought he was finished racing, but instead he turned into an advocate who rose above his diagnosis and is trying to spread his story. Kimball did just that as a guest speaker at the Taking Care of Your Diabetes Conference, which took place Nov. 8 at the San Diego Convention Center (part of the organization is based in Del Mar). “I’m biased, but the diabetes community is among the strongest in the world,” he said after the conference. “A lot of people say that my story inspires them — but hearing other people’s stories keeps me going as well.” Fully embracing his role as an advocate to raise awareness, Kimball has talked with more than 10,000 people about his path from initial confusion about the disease, to a deep understanding of diabetes and how to live with it. “The day I stop learning about diabetes is the day I hang up my helmet,” he said. “I think that I’m a better driver and athlete because of my diabetes and not despite it. I’m better prepared, mentally and physically. I simply understand and listen to my body a lot more, just like mechanics who spend hours to make sure the race car is right.” Understanding and learning how to listen to one’s body is the one skill that those recently diagnosed with their disease must learn, and Kimball said that after a while, it becomes a normal occurrence: “All of the things you have to do for diabetes — like testing your blood sugar — becomes part of your routine, just like checking the news or brushing your teeth.” To read more, please click here.

    Order up: Entrants place deposit for aero kits

    Via IndyCar.com Order up. Verizon IndyCar Series entrants have submitted a 25 percent deposit of the $75,000 package price with their aerodynamic bodywork kit order to respective suppliers Chevrolet and Honda. Manufacturer track testing of prototype components opened Oct. 6 and continues through Jan. 18, 2015, which is the same date as homologation. Production will ramp up to meet the March 1 deadline for one road and street course/short oval kit to be delivered to each entrant. The speedway aero kit, according to the INDYCAR timeline, will be delivered by April 1. The balance of the package cost is due before delivery. The initial team on-track test is scheduled for March 16-17 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala., and the road/street course package will make its competition debut March 27-29 in the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. The 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on May 24 will mark the debut of the speedway aero kit. “The manufacturers will give them a good product and I don’t think it will take long for (teams) to get their heads around it and have good racing at St. Pete,” said Derrick Walker, INDYCAR’s president of competition and operations. “It will be an exciting start to the season.” Six ovals, five street circuits and six road courses constitute the 2015 schedule, which begins March 8 in Brasilia, Brazil, and concludes Aug. 30 at Sonoma Raceway in California.

    Tech Tuesday: The pit lane hub

    When you rely on technology as much as we do within the Verizon IndyCar Series, it helps to have one central hub close by on pit lane. Whether you call it the pit box, pit stand, pit stall, or perhaps "that shaded area where engineers gather to stare at screens," it's a vital part of how we execute a successful race weekend. Once we roll into a race market, the pit stand is unloaded from the transporter and then set up on pit lane in a series-assigned location. Unfortunately it's not as easy as just popping out the sides like a camper. You probably have noticed the tall poles shooting out from each pit stand--these hold the antennas for car telemetry and radios, a mini weather station, and typically a camera to record pit stops. The cabinets of pit stalls house our electronics, everything from crew radios to various telemetry tools. All of these electronics require power, of course, so there are also a good deal of cables to unwind and set up on pit lane. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing engineers and crew members do a great job of keeping everything tidy and sorted properly during setup so they can focus on the car once the track is green. I have two team engineers, one race strategist and one Team Chevy engineer stationed at my pit stand during each on-track session. The engineers can hook up their laptops to the pit stand to receive instant feedback on the car through the telemetry. This allows them to check car data like fuel mileage, steering, tires, and throttle. I have an extra laptop solely for the purpose of checking my blood glucose numbers from pit lane (like I can do from the cockpit). The pit stand also has a couple of stationary monitors installed for timing and scoring, weather forecasts, and live TV feeds. Everything has its place at the pit stand... just one part of our ever-evolving sport! Click here for a cool graphic and more info on pit boxes via IndyCar.com.

    Tech Tuesday: Laying down rubber

    When we're running speeds of 200-plus mph, it's important to know we have the most reliable tires on our feet, so to speak. Thankfully, the Verizon IndyCar Series has a long-standing relationship with Firestone Racing both on the track and off (learn more here). The tires on an IndyCar are far more than just bits of rubber... there is a ton of research, technology and innovation behind each one. Firestone Racing sends engineers and technicians to the track to collect data on the tires before, during and after each on-track stint. The race teams don't get to keep their race-worn tires, as these are sent back with Firestone for further post-race evaluation. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the tires, which ultimately improves our performances! And all of that data doesn't stay at the race track, either. Firestone uses the information learned via IndyCar on the development of their consumer tires, too. If you watch an IndyCar race, you'll hear the broadcasters talk about the three different types of Firestone Firehawk racing tires. - Primary ("black"): used on ovals, street circuits, and road courses; more durable but less grip - Alternate ("red"): used on street circuits and road courses; softer compound; allow for more speed but quicker to wear out - Rain: used on street and road courses; treaded to increase grip in wet track conditions Each tire compound is different, which gives us a slightly different car to work with on track--affecting everything from lap times to handling corners.

Twitter: @charliekimball, @racewithinsulin, @CGRTeams The car: No. 83 Chevrolet, Novo Nordisk primary sponsor The driver: Kimball, of Camarillo, Calif., turned 29 on Feb. 20. … Married in September to Kathleen Thompson, the couple resides in Indianapolis. … Diagnosed in 2007 with type 1 diabetes, Kimball returned to racing in 2008 – claiming a podium finish in his first race. … Received a Jefferson Award for public service in 2012 for spreading the word about diabetes awareness and management. … His father, Gordon, worked with several Indy car and Formula One teams. Season finish: Placed 14th in Verizon IndyCar Series standings – four points out of 13th. Five positions lower than 2013 season. The gist: Kimball has made 68 Verizon IndyCar Series starts over four seasons in the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing car. … He earned his first series victory in 2013 at Mid-Ohio. … He competed in Indy Lights in 2009 and 2010, earning four runner-up finishes in 13 starts in the latter. Season stats: Kimball led the Verizon IndyCar Series in positions advanced relative to his starting position (see chart below). He recorded a best finish of third at Belle Isle2, moving up 17 positions, and had 10 top-10 finishes overall. … He had a late April through early June stretch of five top-10 finishes in six races, and had a four-race stretch from mid-July through early August of consecutive top-10 finishes. Closed the season with 16th-, 21st- and 12th-place outings. … Season-best qualifying of sixth came in two of the final three races – both on ovals (career-best qualifying is fifth in 2013 at Barber, Mid-Ohio and Auto Club Speedway). … Was running at the finish in 15 of the 18 races. Year over year: 2013 best qualifying of fifth at Mid-Ohio and Auto Club Speedway (12.8 average), best finish of first at Mid-Ohio (10.9 average). 2014 best qualifying of sixth at Milwaukee and Auto Club Speedway (16.3 average), best finish of third at Belle Isle2 (12.6 average). Video: Charlie Kimball reviews his season He said it: “(About leading series in positions advanced) We had a great car and were able to overtake and maybe didn't make the most of it in qualifying. The last three races I think we took a step forward in that realm. I think that shows marked improvement over early in the year in qualifying, but also shows that we never give up. We just fight as hard as we can all the time."

    Charlie Kimball is touring the country for Diabetes Awareness

    Via Sports Talk Florida  Tom Veit spoke to IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball about the upcoming season. Charlie is spending the day in Philadelphia talking about diabetes and overcoming it. He will be touring the country doing this to kick off Diabetes Awareness Month. So I understand you’re up in Philly right now? “I am. I’m here going to be spending a little time at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia this afternoon meeting kids and talking to them about having diabetes, overcoming the challenge and living my dream as a race car driver. Kicking off November and Diabetes Awareness Month and I’ll be all over the country talking about diabetes and racing.” Will we see you here in St. Pete in March? (for the St. Pete Grand Prix)? “Yeah I’m looking forward to it. It was great to have the 2015 Verizon IndyCar schedule announced yesterday. The domestic opener back here in North America starting with the Grand Prix in St. Pete. It’s one of the favorite stops for all of the IndyCar paddock on the schedule because it’s kind of like the first day of school. Everyone has seen each other a little over the winter but everyone kind of hibernates as much as possible and catches up with vacation because the racing schedule is so busy and then we come down to St. Pete and the weather is always great and the race track is fun. The whole Bay Area is so much fun so we really enjoy coming down there and going racing.” To listen to the full radio interview, please click here.

    From Pocono to Sonoma: Exciting run to '15 title

    Via IndyCar.com Sonoma Raceway, which hosted the penultimate Verizon IndyCar Series race of the 2014 season, will be the site of the 2015 championship-deciding race. The 85-lap GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on Sunday, Aug. 30 (4 p.m. ET on NBCSN) will mark INDYCAR’s 11th contest on the 2.385-mile, 12-turn permanent road course and the first time since Nov. 11, 2007, that a non-oval has hosted the season finale. Sebastien Bourdais won that race in Mexico City to claim his fourth consecutive Champ Car title. Will Power, who earned his first Verizon IndyCar Series championship this season, finished second in the race. Justin Wilson placed second in the championship standings. “Our road course will be an outstanding venue to decide the series championship, and it will be a terrific way for our fans to wrap up the 2015 racing season in Sonoma,” said Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway president and general manager. “We look forward to working with the folks at INDYCAR and Verizon to make this a championship event second to none.” The Verizon IndyCar Series champion has been decided in the finale the past nine years. “Sonoma is one of those tracks that has really embraced INDYCAR. In our new way of doing business, we have a lot more pre- and post-event meetings with our promoters and work hand-in-hand with the promoters on ways to potentially enhance the show,” INDYCAR president of competition and operations Derrick Walker said. This past August, Power, driving the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car, set the Sonoma Raceway lap record of 1 minute, 17.4126 seconds in qualifying for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma. Scott Dixon overtook Mike Conway on Lap 83 of 85 to score a dramatic victory. “Sonoma will be an outstanding place to end the Verizon IndyCar Series season,” said Power, the reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion who has won at Sonoma in 2010, ’11 and ’13 and started on the pole four times. “It’s an awesome venue with fans that really love our sport. It’s in one of our truly great race markets with superb weather. Sonoma Raceway is one of my absolute favorite tracks and I'm really excited for the season to end there. I think it will be a good change of pace from the previous years." Tickets go on sale Nov. 17 at www.racesonoma.com or by calling 800-870-RACE. The Pocono INDYCAR 500 fueled by Sunoco on the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway tri-oval moves from early July to set up the finale. The Sunday, Aug. 23, race (2 p.m. ET on NBCSN) will be the third consecutive year that the raceway, which had been the site of memorable Indy car races from 1971-89, has hosted the Verizon IndyCar Series. "We have been bombarded with questions from race fans regarding the Verizon IndyCar Series' return to Pocono next summer," track president/CEO Brandon Igdalsky said. "Our staff evaluated fan feedback and this, with cooperation from everyone at INDYCAR, we were able to find different date on the 2015 calendar, which we feel works better for everyone involved."

    IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball and Diabetes Awareness Month

    Via WISH-TV Indy Style Since November is Diabetes Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time to find out about one of the heroes within the diabetes community. Today on Indy Style Andi Hauser talks with IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball. For many, that’s Charlie Kimball the first licensed race car driver with diabetes to win an IndyCar race. Charlie discuses his challenge, how he’s worked to overcome them, and offer advice to others. As race car driver Charlie Kimball wraps up his fourth season in the Verizon INDYCAR Series, he has secured ten top-10 finishes including a podium 3rd place finish in Detroit this year. For the more than 29 million people living with diabetes in the United States, Charlie’s story is proof that it’s possible to pursue your dreams, even with diabetes. For many patients and their families, the diagnosis can be daunting. For Kimball, his diagnosis 7 years ago (October 16, 2007) almost caused him to give up his dream of racing at the highest level. However, Charlie worked with his health care and racing teams to develop a system to help his trackside diabetes management. In addition to taking insulin with a newly-launched prefilled pen, Charlie also watches his diet and uses a monitor that tracks his blood sugar levels to ensure his diabetes is managed before and during his time in the race car. In honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month, Charlie is sharing his inspiring story and discussing how he manages his condition in order to compete at the highest level.

The most diverse schedule in motorsports includes events on technically challenging road and street courses, short ovals and superspeedways that is sure to deliver another exciting year of competition. In 2014, Will Power of Team Penske earned his first Verizon IndyCar Series championship in a season that featured a record-tying 11 different race winners. The Verizon IndyCar Series champion has been determined in the final race the past nine seasons. ABC will telecast six events, including both days of Indianapolis 500 qualifications and the 500 Mile Race, while NBCSN will telecast 13 events. All races will be broadcast by the IMS Radio Network through its affiliates, including SiriusXM Satellite Radio, the INDYCAR 15 app and www.indycar.com. “The Verizon IndyCar Series calendar represents another step forward in our strategy to grow the series,” said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co., the parent of INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “There were several factors that led to the positive momentum we experienced in 2014 and we will continue to execute on those initiatives – continuity in our broadcast schedule, strategic growth of our schedule and improvements to how we promote our events. The continued support from our television partners at ABC and NBCSN, and the ongoing collaboration with promoters, teams and sponsor partners gives us a lot of confidence about our future.” The Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana on Sunday, April 12 (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN) at NOLA Motorsports Park near New Orleans is the other new venue on the schedule followed by the 41st Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (April 19, NBCSN) and a return to scenic Barber Motorsports Park (April 26, NBCSN). The Month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will kick off with the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis (May 9, ABC) and will be followed by Indy 500 qualifications (May16-17, ABC). NBCSN will telecast Carb Day activities May 22 that include the final practice session and the Freedom 100 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires race. The month culminates May 24 with the Indianapolis 500. The Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix returns as a doubleheader event (May 30-31, ABC) and is followed by the night race at Texas Motor Speedway (June 6, NBCSN). The race on streets of Toronto has moved (June 14, NBCSN) to accommodate the Pan American Games, and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Aug. 2, NBCSN) retains its familiar date. Pocono Raceway moves from early July to be the lead-in race (Aug. 23, NBCSN) to the championship finale and part of a four-race oval swing at Auto Club Speedway (June 27, NBCSN), the Milwaukee Mile (July 12, NBCSN) and Iowa Speedway (July 18, NBCSN). “Returning to Pocono in 2015 is great news,” said Tony Kanaan, 2004 Verizon IndyCar Series champion who won the 2014 season finale at Auto Club Speedway. “The ‘Tricky Triangle’ is a very challenging racetrack for us and it provides great racing and excitement for the fans. Continuity is the key word to rebuild our fan base for that region and INDYCAR and Pocono are working very hard and thankfully making it happen. I’m obviously happy to be able to return in 2015 and finish the strong race we had in 2014.”

    Tech Tuesday: More than an earbud

    My latest Tech Tuesday feature fits a lot of important technology into a small package: driver earpieces. You're probably familiar with the fact that Verizon IndyCar Series drivers wear earpieces in order to listen to team strategists, engineers and spotters during a race. But did you know, our earpieces also contain tiny sensors used to measure the G-forces in relation to the impact of a crash. The INDYCAR-manufactured system uses accelerometers as sensors for the vertical, lateral and longitudinal G-forces. Following a crash, the safety crew and engineers can extract the data to a black box (yes, like an airplane!) to examine and improve safety features for drivers. While of course we'd rather stay way from incidents, it's cool to know that even the smallest pieces of technology can make a big impact for IndyCar safety. To learn more about our earpieces, visit INDYCAR 101. [caption id="attachment_1565" align="aligncenter" width="626"] Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA[/caption] Click here for more Tech Tuesday posts.

    Tech Tuesday: A slightly modified steering wheel

    Today's Tech Tuesday post is steered toward (sorry, I had to!) IndyCar steering wheels. You probably have a couple of buttons on your street car's steering wheel, perhaps radio volume, cruise control and a Bluetooth sync button. But if you hop into a Verizon IndyCar Series car, you'll find at least a dozen buttons and switches. From the cockpit, these buttons and switches allow us drivers to talk directly to our engineers, adjust fuel maps, slow down on pit lane, overtake with push-to-pass, take a drink of water... and even go in reverse (which, hopefully, doesn't need to be used often). All of this technology packed into one small piece of equipment has quite a big price tag. Steering wheels can cost up to $25,000 each! The dash on our steering wheels could be considered the main communication tool between a driver and his or her race car. The dash will display everything from lap times and speeds to gearbox temperatures and fuel mileage. If something doesn't feel right with the car, those readings can help determine or confirm the issue. My dash is slightly modified in that I can also view my blood glucose levels. Thanks to a continuous glucose monitor I wear on my skin every race weekend, my numbers are transferred to the dash (and the engineering stand). Just like I monitor my car's performance, we can also monitor my body too. Isn't technology great?! Check out INDYCAR 101 for more details on an IndyCar cockpit, including videos!
