    Kimball looks to build on consistency

    Via IndyCar.com Coming off a Verizon IndyCar Series season in which he equaled his best championship finish, Charlie Kimball feels that he can do even better in 2017. The driver of the No. 83 Tresiba Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing ended the season ninth in the standings on the strength of 11 top-10 finishes, including season-best fifth-place showings in the two races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway – the INDYCAR Grand Prix on the road course and the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil on the 2.5-mile oval. Consistency was a key theme in Kimball’s season. He finished 15 out of 16 rounds – contact knocked him out of the season opener a lap short of the finish – and led all drivers in laps completed with 2,066 of a possible 2,070. He also celebrated his 100th career series start in the season finale at Sonoma Raceway. To read more, please click here.

    First oval test wraps up for No. 83 team

    Charlie Kimball and the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team left the "Prix View" open test at Phoenix Raceway with 240 laps on the 1.022-mile oval, their first oval test sessions with Honda as a partner for 2017. "We're just learning about how the new Honda engine and aero kit reacts to changes and working through race and qualifying setups," Kimball said. "We did a little bit of race work yesterday during the day and then trimmed some down to get closer to a qualifying setup last night. We spent the afternoon of Day 2 doing some qualifying work just trimming downforce out and trying to get the drag out of it. We need to see how the car reacts in both speed and what we need to do on the engine side, but also the balance of the car and any adjustments we need to make before we come back on the race weekend." The 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season kicks off on March 12 at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. The Series returns to Phoenix Raceway on April 29 for its fourth event of the year. "There's so much we have to learn, so we're just trying to get as much information as possible before we come back during the season," Kimball said.

    First look: Prix View open test

    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:

      The test session resumes at 1 p.m. Mountain/3 p.m. Eastern today, with live streaming available at RaceControl.IndyCar.com. [caption id="attachment_3733" align="aligncenter" width="626"] Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA - Click for full gallery.[/caption]

    Inside the rink: Charlie Kimball, Honda take on NHL All-Star game

    Via NBC Sports Motor Sports Talk Editor’s note: Charlie Kimball, driver of the No. 83 Tresiba Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing Teams, took over the Verizon IndyCar Series Instagram and Snapchat social media accounts during the NHL All-Star Game at STAPLES Center this weekend in Los Angeles. Honda is the official vehicle of the NHL. While there, Kimball was also keeping apprised of his Ganassi and Honda teammates racing at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Kimball recounts his reflections of the weekend on ice and watching the cars metaphorically on ice, when speaking to MotorSportsTalk editor Tony DiZinno. — One of my many interests outside the cockpit is watching hockey, and so to have the opportunity to take in the NHL All-Star Game presented by Honda not far from my hometown in Los Angeles was something I really appreciated having the chance to do.

    All-Star game visit a treat for hockey fan Kimball

    Via IndyCar.com Growing up in Southern California, Charlie Kimball wasn’t much of an ice hockey fan, but that changed when he attended his first NHL game. “When I was 11 or 12 years old, I went with my dad to my first LA Kings and first NHL game,” the Verizon IndyCar Series driver said. “From that day on, I was hooked! Of course it’s fun to watch these games on TV, but to see it in person, it’s such a fast-paced sport and it pulls you in. In that way, it’s similar to Indy car (racing). Kimball, who drives the No. 83 Novo Nordisk backed Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing, is still a fan of the Kings and even attended a game at Staples Center earlier this season as a guest of Kings captain Anze Kopitar. Kimball will be back at Staples this weekend as a guest of Honda at the NHL All-Star Game. He’ll attend several events during the weekend. In addition to the 3-on-3 tournament that highlights the All-Star weekend, Kimball and his wife Kathleen will attend event including tonight’s NHL 100 Gala, which honors the league’s 100 greatest players, alongside celebrity hockey fans such as Michael J. Fox, Keanu Reeves and “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek. To read more, please click here.

    INDYCAR announces multiyear contract extension with Firestone

    Via IndyCar.com INDYCAR announced a multiyear contract extension today with Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC (BATO), continuing its longtime partnership with Firestone as the official tire supplier of the Verizon IndyCar Series. The announcement extends the tire brand’s involvement in open-wheel racing that dates to Ray Harroun’s Firestone-equipped Marmon Wasp winning the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911. "Firestone is part of the fabric of INDYCAR and its commitment to evolving performance, innovation and safety in the Verizon IndyCar Series has been remarkable," said Jay Frye, INDYCAR president of competition and operations. "The Firestone brand has been part of our sport for more than 100 years and continues to be an integral partner in the growth of INDYCAR on and off the racetrack." Firestone has been involved in racing competitions since the early days of the automobile, particularly at the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. Alexander Rossi’s win at the 100th Running of the Indy 500 last May was the 67th for Firestone – more than all other tire manufacturers combined – in the iconic race. Firestone, which returned to Indy car racing in 1995 following a 20-year hiatus, has been the sole supplier of Verizon IndyCar Series tires since 2000 and provides teams with a known, stable and reliable platform for the future of INDYCAR.
