SATURDAY, JUNE 25 RESULTS Practice 3: P19, 1:44.146 Qualifying: P11, 1:43.2649 IN CK'S WORDS "I can’t say that I’m happy with 11th, but I’m pleased with the improvement. I think it shows how much we improved with the simple fact that we’re eight spots better than we’ve been all weekend in any session and just finishing up qualifying when it counts. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing guys stayed with me and kept working on the car and working on me. We got lucky with the yellow in the first session, but we’d done the lap time when we needed to and that really played well for making it into the next segment. We’ll keep an eye on the weather and see if it’s going to be wet in the warm up tomorrow, but we’ll go from there and see what we want to do in the race as far as the alternate and primary Firestones. We really need to decide which one is going to last. I know 50 laps doesn’t sound like much, but around here that’s still 200 miles."

FRIDAY, JUNE 24 RESULTS Practice 1: P20, 1:45.3892 Practice 2: P21, 1:44.4625 IN CK'S WORDS "I'm really disappointed with today's sessions. It's not anywhere near as fast or competitive as we want to be. Fortunately our teammates are doing well, so we'll take a look at what they are doing and where we can learn. I'm just really struggling with the sensation of grip around here for some reason. We'll make it better over night--I think we already have a couple of good ideas, so we'll go from there. We find a little bit of speed and lap time in the corners--that's the good thing about a lot of corners. Tomorrow is a new day. We'll be right there ready to compete."

    Firestone 600 completion plan announced

    Via IndyCar.com INDYCAR announced today its plan for resuming the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway that was suspended June 12 after completing 71 of its scheduled 248 laps. The Verizon IndyCar Series race will be completed Aug. 27. The No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda driven by Conor Daly and No. 21 Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet driven by Josef Newgarden will not be permitted to participate in the continuation due to the extensive chassis and engine damage each sustained in a crash on Lap 42. James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports is the race leader after 71 laps. Cars continuing in the race will be permitted to use the chassis and engine of their choice for the completion day. Tire allotment and fuel quantity for the completion are yet to be determined. Pre-race aero setups from the June event will be mandatory for the August completion, though INDYCAR may make changes prior to the completion based on the weather forecast for race weekend. The remaining 177 race laps will be run at the conclusion of the Aug. 27 schedule that includes: - A mandatory systems check (an out/in lap only); - A 25-minute practice session: Cars will be split into two groups, each group receiving 10 minutes of practice time with a five-minute break in between; - A driver autograph session on the track’s concourse; - Completion of the race in the evening. Texas Motor Speedway will be announcing its plans for ticketing, credentialing, camping and various other fan-related and facility-based items in the coming weeks.

You just feel the speed at the end of every straight and going into those long corners; it’s unlike anything else on the schedule. After a weekend off, the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team will be working hard to make the most of the KOHLER Grand Prix and earn some points for the Verizon IndyCar Series Championship."

    Firestone 600 postponed after 71 laps; will resume on Aug. 27

    Via IndyCar.com The Firestone 600 will have to wait another day for its completion. Another two months, in fact. The scheduled 248-lap event at Texas Motor Speedway – the ninth race of the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season – was stopped after 71 laps today by heavy rain. INDYCAR and track officials announced that the race was suspended and will be completed Aug. 27 as a night race. “We certainly want to come back and have a full race for the fans here in Texas,” said Jay Frye, INDYCAR president of competition and operations. “The people at TMS do a great job, so what we will do, per our rulebook, is start the race from where we stopped. So we will come back and start the race from that point. “This is unique. It hasn’t happened for a little while, but there are a lot of unique things here and we’ll look forward to coming back Aug. 27.” The race was originally scheduled for Saturday night, but lingering wet track conditions from daylong rain prevented it from starting. The 22-car field took the green flag at 2:48 p.m. ET today, but was able to complete only 71 laps on the 1.455-mile oval before storms returned. A race must complete at least half its lap distance to be considered official. To read more, please click here.

We had a solid car at TMS last year, with a top-10 finish, so we’ll be looking to improve on that. Props to the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew for the quick turn-around this week. It’s been a long stretch for the Verizon IndyCar Series but I know I have a great team behind me."

We had a much faster car in that first practice session, so we're not exactly sure what happened in that run to make us so much slower. Where you qualify is definitely important here, but it's not the end-all-be-all on any oval. Tonight's practice will be really important for everyone, but especially us since we'll be starting further back and will need to work harder to move through the field."

The No. 83 Tresiba® Chevrolet was definitely better than a 16th place finish. We got caught out by a yellow on that last stop. It’s really unfortunate with the pits closed – you’re just kind of racing to the luck of a yellow flag. We just missed it a little bit today. It’s disappointing, but we’ll come back stronger in Texas. I’m excited about getting back to Texas Motor Speedway where we finished seventh last year and had a really good test earlier in the year."

It’s hard to really describe the day because so much went on. We tried a bunch of strategies. The 83 guys on the stand were awesome – just trying to do something to get us in the best track position. I was racing guys hard, and honestly the No. 83 Tresiba® Chevrolet was better than eighth. It just didn’t quite work out on strategy. Between the rain drops, the way the yellows fell and who we were racing, we got a little bit caught up there. It was a tough day. Any time you’re racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series with such tight competition it’s not going to be easy, especially at such a physical track like this one. A big thanks to the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team and really all of Chip Ganassi Racing – I know they’ll be here late tonight getting the cars ready for the second race tomorrow."

FRIDAY, JUNE 3 RESULTS Practice 1: P14, 1:16.709 Qualifying 1: P8, 1:15.6712 IN CK'S WORDS "Frankly I’m really happy with the 83 team bouncing back after a tough practice session. We had a few different gremlins this morning – just things we haven’t ever seen before that we needed to deal with before qualifying. Overall I’m very happy to come away starting on the fourth row. I think we have a good opportunity to make moves forward during tomorrow’s race, and hopefully we can learn something from today’s qualifying that we can take away for qualifying for Sunday’s race."

The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team has had some success on Belle Isle in the past, and I think we’ve been consistent this season on the street courses. I’m looking forward to getting back into the No. 83 Tresiba Chevrolet in a few days in the Motor City for the double-header."

We had some bad luck early on after picking up some debris from a crash and needing to make a front wing change, but we just put our heads down and started working our way back up one at a time. The No. 42 Tresiba® Chevrolet was strong today as were the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing guys.

We were still working with some downforce levels during the session, but we’re feeling confident with where we are with the race car. I loved seeing all of the fans come out today– I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many people out here on Carb Day. Today was just a preview of how great the race is going to be and I can’t wait to get out there and take the green flag for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500."

We did a lot of laps today, I think it was around 100, working on the race car and working in traffic. We’re just figuring out what it’s going to take to get up front and stay up front. Obviously starting 16th we have a few cars to pass before we can get in striking distance. We’ll spend the next few days going over data from all of the Chip Ganassi Racing cars trying to figure out how to get the No. 42 a little quicker in traffic and a little quicker out front on its own."

The No. 42 Tresiba® Chevrolet was a little less reactive to the conditions, which was nice because we fought the wind quite a lot yesterday. That’s the great thing about Chip Ganassi Racing – you get a lot of data to learn from especially with guys as good as TK and Dixon. Overall regardless of how today went, we have a really good race car. We’ll work on the race setup tomorrow and Friday, and just keep with the mentality that it’s not where you start, it’s where you finish."

We had three really good runs, making the car better and trimming downforce and drag out of it, so we know what we have when it's time for qualifying tomorrow. Unfortunately the last couple of runs got interrupted with the yellows, but I've got a lot of confidence in the No. 42 car.

We made a lot of progress on balance and grip. We tried some things that didn't work, but circled back and the 42 car came alive again. I feel like we're going in a good direction to be able to work in traffic, as far as grip, which is the most important thing. We went out to do some qualifying work late this afternoon, and I can tell it's going to be tight. It'll be fun to get the extra horsepower out of the Chevy engines tomorrow, and we'll see what the Team Chevy aerokit brings on Saturday and Sunday."

I think a lot of guys were excited to get back out on track, especially after getting rained out yesterday. It was a beautiful day at IMS and the No. 42 car ran pretty well. We did a lot of work on the race setup in traffic and I was pretty happy with where we ended the day. We made some changes that made the car better, and we made some changes that we decided weren’t the right way to go. Overall I think Chip Ganassi Racing has a solid foundation to learn from heading into the next couple of days. Looking ahead, we’ll probably do a couple of race work runs to start the day and then we’ll start getting a solid eye toward qualifying this weekend."

But once we start practice, once I strap into the car, it's all business. We have to try to ignore all of the extra pomp and circumstance this year, and instead go out and do what we try to do every race weekend--win. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team had a really good 500-mile race last year, and I think that little taste of success at the Speedway motivates us even more this year."

Thanks to the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Teams crew for sticking with me today and making a lot of improvements to the car before qualifying. It's only 50 laps tomorrow here at Road America... but with the long course, I think there will be plenty of action to see!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool is it to be at Road America?! I'd give it at least a 15! It's great to see so many IndyCar Series fans out here already, too! One practice session (11 a.m. CT) before qualifying at 3 p.m. CT... Catch it live via RaceControl.IndyCar.com, or on NBC Sports Network at 4:30 p.m. CT. [Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA]

What's four miles long, with 14 turns, that has IndyCar Series fans AND drivers counting down the minutes until the green flag flies? The #KOHLERGP at Road America! Are you tuning in from home or heading to Elkhart Lake to catch the action live?

Happy Father's Day to my dad, always by my side at the track or from afar. And to all family members of the fathers on the Chip Ganassi Racing Teams: thank you for your patience and support as he spends countless hours working hard with us at the shop and race track!

It's true--for the first time in a few months, you won't find me at a race track on a Saturday or Sunday. Instead I'll be relaxing on my Axis Wake Research boat with friends! But don't worry, there's plenty of racing to watch... Help me cheer on my Chip Ganassi Racing Teams teammates this weekend!
