    Kimball reaped rewards from Mid-Ohio risk in '13

    Via IndyCar.com July 28, 2014 LEXINGTON, Ohio – Charlie Kimball recounts how angst, trust, commitment and jubilation intertwined as the August 2013 Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio race weekend played out. There was much to digest: *Momentum of a sixth-place finish in the second race of the Toronto doubleheader. *A crash in the practice session preceding qualifications. *The crew responding and Kimball tying his career high of fifth in qualifying. *Overtaking race leader Simon Pagenaud deep on the back side of the Keyhole with 18 laps left. *Leading a field-high 46 laps in the caution-free race when he led a total of 15 laps in his previous 44 starts. *Earning his first Verizon IndyCar Series victory. “Coming back now I remember how the weekend always had a lot of promise but we really didn’t know, and then my crash in practice right before qualifying I didn’t know if the car would be ready. I had a lot of confidence in the guys (to repair it) but we didn’t know for sure,” Kimball said last week during a team test at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in preparation for the Aug. 3 race. “Then qualifying in the top five was like this could show really well, but ...” Kimball, 29, of Camarillio, Calif., points to the depth of competition (a Chip Ganassi Racing car had won the previous four years; three by Scott Dixon), strategy and circumstance as elusive components to race result projections. Strategy was the decisive factor for Kimball, who did not compete at Mid-Ohio in 2012 because of a wrist injury suffered a week earlier in testing at the facility. Engineer Brad Goldberg and race strategist Tom Wurtz broached a go-for-it approach to the 90-lap race on the 2.258-mile, 13-turn layout. “It came down to risk-reward,” Kimball said. “We knew we had a quick car and where we were in fifth we would have to save a lot of fuel to make it on two stops rather than three. Brad said, ‘What are we going to lose if we save fuel and run around and finish 10th? You’re going to get out of the car and hate me. If at least if we try something, go for it, and if it doesn’t work it doesn’t work but at least give ourselves the chance to get that win.’ “Brad and Tom have a good feel for it. So it was here’s the window; here we go.” Kimball’s No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing entry ran in the top five early, led Laps 31-40 and 48-64. “As the race developed I knew we had the right strategy call; we just had to have the right breaks,” Kimball said. “There are very few races like that when you put yourself in a position that, no matter what’s happening, you’ve got a shot.” He pitted for the third and final time on Lap 65 and worked his way back to the front, making the decisive move on Pagenaud on Lap 73 seconds after the No. 77 car exited pit lane. On cold tires, Pagenaud couldn’t hold off the charging Kimball or catch him in the intervening laps. “To get that win and share it with the guys, because it was a lot of their first win as well, meant a lot,” Kimball said. “It’s cool to remember.” This time around, Kimball enters Mid-Ohio with seventh- and fourth-place finishes at Toronto in the Chevrolet-powered Levemir FlexTouch car that completed the stretch of six races in four consecutive weekends. Kimball recorded two top fives (fourth place at Houston 2 matching Toronto 2) among the four top-10s results. The No. 83 car crew earned the Firestone Pit Performance Award for Race 1 at Toronto with a total pit lane time of 29.920 seconds. “To get the two top 10s and the one top five at Toronto was really good momentum-wise,” said Kimball, who moved from 16th in the championship standings to 13th following the Honda Indy Toronto. “I think on the Novo Nordisk side we’ve improved on the street circuits and definitely the guys have gotten really good on pit lane where (at Mid-Ohio) those couple of extra seconds on pit lane make a big difference.” Please click here to read more.

    Did You Know . . .

    Did you now... I love being outdoors! As a SoCal boy, I suppose that might not come as a huge surprise to some of you. I can't get enough of anything that gets me outside, from surfing, snowboarding or mountain biking to just hanging out on the lake or playing wiffle ball with the neighborhood kids. One of my favorite recent trips was a visit to the Grand Canyon with my dad. It's also great to take my Axis Wake A24 out for some quality time on the wake board, when we're not racing. I'm headed to the lake for a long weekend of fun with friends. You can bet that I'll be soaking in every minute of the sunshine! What are your favorite outdoor activities?

    Kimball, Sato earn Top-5s after starting deep in field for Toronto Race 2

    Via MotorSportsTalk July 20, 2014 With today’s same-day doubleheader of 65-lap races at the Honda Indy Toronto, the grid for Race 2 was set on entrant points following Race 1. That meant Charlie Kimball and Takuma Sato would have to try and make their way up front from deep in the field. Kimball started Race 2 in 16th place, while Sato started from 22nd. But both drivers were able to put on good drives and come away with Top-5 finishes – fourth for Kimball and fifth for Sato. As the track started to dry out from mid-race showers, Kimball noted that things got a bit more difficult for him. “The problem with a drying track like that is there’s such a narrow line, and the car had been really good all day – we were making our way through and holding our own in the rain,” he said to NBCSN. “Then as it dried out – we like to go slicks early but we kind of waited and then we caught that yellow [at Lap 44], followed every one in, followed every one out, and picked our way through the guys on wet [tires]. But I just couldn’t get past the 12 car [Will Power] at the end for the podium.” The result is still his fourth Top-5 finish of 2014, however, and it gives him confidence heading into the next race in two weeks’ time at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, where he earned his first IndyCar win last summer. “At one point, I thought, ‘It’s going to be a pretty good day for Chip here’ with third, fourth, fifth and sixth, all in a train in the wet conditions,” Kimball mused. “But it didn’t work out that way. We’ll reload, refocus, go testing, and go to Mid-Ohio. “I’m looking forward to it for obvious reasons.” Click here to read more.

    Live from Trackside - Toronto

    Sunday, July 20 6:30 p.m.  When it really mattered there at the end, the No. 83 Levemir® FlexTouch® Chevrolet was quick. I have to give a huge amount of credit to the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew – they just always seem to get it right with the strategy. It was really nice to see a couple of Chip Ganassi cars up there in front and at one point it looked even better when we were all running third through sixth. It was tough conditions with the rain and concrete patches on the track, but we were able to push through all of the elements and make some passes at the right times. I’ll take the fourth place, especially heading into Mid-Ohio. Thanks again to the fans who stuck it out with us... glad we were able to put on two good shows today! [caption id="attachment_1253" align="aligncenter" width="427"] Team pow-wow before race 2.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1254" align="aligncenter" width="569"]Ready to pit! Ready to pit![/caption] 2:30 p.m. What a day so far! And we still have one more race to go. We're pretty happy with how the first race finished. We picked our way through, made the fuel mileage number we needed to, and made some good on-track passes. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing guys were awesome for pit stops, so we made up time there too. Not only did we advance 11 spots during race 1, but it was an all-Chevy podium with six Chevys in the top-10! The No. 83 Levemir® FlexTouch® Chevrolet is ready for race 2. We'll work to make it a little better and hope to improve a few spots during the race this afternoon. Tune in to NBC Sports Network at 3 p.m. Eastern for more IndyCar action! [caption id="attachment_1251" align="aligncenter" width="320"]Pre-race 1, Sunday edition Pre-race 1, Sunday edition[/caption] Saturday, July 19 7:20 p.m. Well that was... interesting. We started getting some precipitation not too long after qualifying this morning and unfortunately it never let up. Normally we would race on rain tires on a street course but once we got out on track, the spray was too much. After a long wait including some movement of the cars from pit lane to the pit box (and back to pit lane again), IndyCar Race Control cancelled all track activity for the day due to the weather conditions. Here's the just-announced schedule for tomorrow, Sunday, July 20: Race 1: 10:30 a.m. Eastern Live on CNBC (and Sportsnet 360 in Canada) 65 laps, two-wide rolling start Starting order set by Saturday's qualifying Race 2: 4:15 p.m. Eastern Live on NBC Sports Network (and Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific in Canada) 65 laps, standing start Starting order set by entrant points Learn more about tomorrow's two races hereA huge thanks to all of the fans who stayed in the rain and waited for a race today!

The car just wasn't quite where we wanted it to be, and we got caught up in some traffic during our session. We'll start P20 but as we've proved in the past, I know we can move up from there. We have a bit of time before green flag this afternoon, so I'll take the chance to look over data with my engineers, talk with the other drivers about setups and maybe take some downtime to myself. Tune in to race 1 at 3 p.m. Eastern on NBCSN! Friday, July 18 3:50 p.m. The No. 83 Levemir® FlexTouch® Chevrolet made a lot of progress in both practices today. We came in with some unanswered questions and some changes we needed to backtrack on, and after today I think we’re really starting to put the pieces together. This street course surface is definitely a rough one--I can even tell a difference from just last year--so that's taking a bit of time to get adjusted to. I feel confident that we’re heading in a good direction for tomorrow, and I’m excited to see what the car can do on new tires.

Watch both practices live via INDYCAR Race Control at 10 a.m. and 1:55 p.m. Eastern. I'm off to a drivers' meeting, but while you're waiting for practice 1 (because it's Friday and I know you'll be watching from work...), check out this story from the Toronto Star about how I monitor my glucose levels while racing and how I prep for double-headers. Ever wanted to take a tour of an IndyCar transporter? Here's your chance: I gave Sportsnet a quick look inside the Chip Ganassi Racing transporters yesterday, and you can now watch it here. Enjoy! Thursday, July 17 10:30 a.m. It's exciting to have the No. 83 Levemir® FlexTouch® Chevrolet and the whole Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team back here in Toronto. We had success there the last few years, getting my first IndyCar Series podium on the streets of Toronto. It's always a great event--one of the highlights on the calendar for me. Having already been on the podium this year for the streets of Belle Isle in Detroit, I'm looking forward to repeating that, doing a few steps better and picking up a win this weekend in Toronto. Today's agenda is pretty straightforward... lots of time with my engineers, an interview with Sportsnet, and the track walk this afternoon. But I know once things get started for this double-header weekend, we'll get busy quickly! Here's a race weekend schedule (all times Eastern): Friday, July 18 10-10:45 a.m. Practice 1:55-2:50 p.m. Practice and Standing Start Practice Saturday, July 19 10-11:10 a.m. Qualifying #1 (delayed broadcast on NBC Sports Network at 1:30 p.m.) 3 p.m. Race #1 (broadcast live on NBC Sports Network) Sunday, July 20 10-10:30 a.m. Qualifying #2 12-1 p.m. Autograph session (in the INDYCAR Fan Village) 3 p.m. Race #2 (broadcast live on NBC Sports Network) Catch live timing and scoring for all on-track sessions (and live video for practice sessions) via INDYCAR Race Control.

    Let's run 2 in T.O. on same day: Race 1 postponed

    Via IndyCar.com July 19, 2014 TORONTO – The July 19 opening round of the Honda Indy Toronto was postponed to July 20 because of a rain-slicked 1.755-mile, 11-turn temporary street circuit, creating a unique same-day doubleheader. Two 65-lap races -- a two-wide rolling start for Race 1 at 10:30 a.m. (ET) and a standing start for the 4:15 p.m. (ET) Race 2 -- will be contested. Race 1 will be telecast on CNBC and Race 2 on NBCSN. For Canadian viewers, Race 1 will be telecast on Sportsnet 360 and Race 2 will be telecast on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific. Sebastien Bourdais, driving the No. 11 KVSH Racing car, earned the Verizon P1 Award for Race 1. It was his first pole since Sept. 2, 2007, at Assen, Netherlands. The Race 2 starting lineup will be determined by entrant points, which gives the Verizon P1 Award to Helio Castroneves. The driver of the No. 3 PPG Team Penske car takes a nine-point lead over teammate Will Power into Rounds 13 and 14 of the 18-race season. “Obviously, we all wanted to get the race in today, but this was the correct call,” said Castroneves, who qualified third in the No. 3 PPG Team Penske car. “We really tried to start the race but it was clear that we were going to wreck a lot of cars. The PPG Chevy is very fast so whenever we start the race we will be fine.” After a 2-hour, 30-minute delay from the scheduled start, INDYCAR officials and the event owner group made the decision to wait for a more favorable weather forecast July 20. It’s the first Verizon IndyCar Series race postponed because of inclement weather since Sao Paulo in 2011, when 15 laps were run. The remaining laps were completed the next day. The 2010 season opener in St. Petersburg, Fla., was postponed before getting the green flag to the next day. Races at Barber Motorsports Park, Houston and Iowa Speedway have been impacted by rain this season. The Race Director declared a wet start 60 minutes before the command to start engines because of persistent light rain that created puddling. The standing start was scrapped in favor of a single-file rolling start. The 23-car field made several warm-up laps before the Race Director declared a red flag and cars returned to pit lane because of poor visibility and slippery conditions. “They can race in the rain, but it’s once they get up to speed and the spray. You can’t see anything and it would be mayhem,” said team owner Michael Andretti, who won seven times at Toronto. After a 20-minute delay, cars took to the racetrack again and were heading to the green flag when the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car of Power did a half-spin entering Turn 11 and made left-side contact with the concrete barrier. The crew made suspension changes under a second red flag for conditions, and Power rejoined the field.

    Charlie Kimball won't be slowed by diabetes

    Via Toronto Star July 17, 2014 When the checkered flag waved to end the second of a two-race weekend doubleheader in Houston three weeks ago, Verizon IndyCar Series driver Will Power looked positively exhausted. He was out of his Penske Racing car and sitting on the ground, in the shade, pale and appearing to be a candidate for an IV. On the other hand, driver Charlie Kimball positively glowed. He looked as if he hadn’t broken a sweat and, in fact, said in a TV interview he felt so good that he was ready to go out and drive another race the very next day. Get this: Charlie Kimball has diabetes. And Will Power wasn’t the only IndyCar driver sucking oxygen from a bottle after that race, either.

    Kimball, who will be driving for Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing in two more doubleheader races in the Honda Indy Toronto at Exhibition Place Saturday and Sunday, is the first — and so far the only — Type 1 diabetic to be licensed by IndyCar to race in the series.
    And his blood sugar count is part of the race team’s data.
    “I wear a continuous glucose monitor when I’m racing,” Kimball said in an interview this week.
    “So there’s a sensor on my body and it transmits to a display and that display is actually plugged into the car’s data system. So on my steering wheel, I have speed, lap time, oil pressure, blood sugar, water temperature. I have car and body data right there together.”
    Since Kimball was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 22 (he’s 29 now), he hasn’t let it hold him back and has been steadily employed by teams in a number of different series, from British Formula 3 to Firestone Indy Lights to the top of the mountain, IndyCar, where he’s raced since 2011.
    Kimball says that because of his illness, he’s better prepared mentally and has a better understanding of his body in general. “I have to consider everything I eat, I consider every activity I do.” Click HERE to read more.

    Did You Know . . .

    Did you know... racing is in my blood. Of course lots of young kids like to play with toy race cars but as the son of a racing engineer, I often had the chance to play alongside real race cars. I was born in England while my dad (Gordon) was working as an engineer for a Formula One team. Before moving home to California, we traveled around Europe a bit with his job, seeing some of the most famous race courses along the way. By the time I was old enough to steer a go-kart, I was hooked! The rest, as they say, is history. In Pocono this year, I had the chance to check out an '83 Patrick Wildcat chassis, an Indy car chassis designed and engineered by my dad. The Wildcat was driven by not only Gordon Johncock and Johnny Rutherford but also by my current race team owner Chip Ganassi. Read more about my Wildcat experience here.
