Chip Ganassi Racing’s Charlie Kimball won at Mid-Ohio
in 2013, becoming the first professional driver with Type II
diabetes to score a victory in a major championship.

GOING WITH GABBY
Bryan Herta replaced
Hawksworth with Chaves,
a 21-year-old Colombian
who grabbed the Indy
last year (LEFT). BHA is a
small dog with a lot of bite
(Hawksworth finished third
and sixth at Houston last
year), and Chaves drives
with controlled abandon.
Could be a fun season!
HAWK, MEET SUPER TEX
What do you get when you match 80-year-
old Texan A.J. Foyt with a skilled, 24-year-old
Brit? Beyond hilarious hi-jinx, you expect to
see them contend for victories. Hawksworth
is no secret across the pond, and Larry
Foyt’s group is making Dad proud with some
fast cars of late. A breakout year ahead?
COUNTING THE YEARS
He’s made the most of his opportunity with
Ganassi Racing, entering his fifth season
with four top-fives from 2014, a Mid-Ohio
win from 2013 and the respect of everyone.
Good news is he’s set with Ganassi for the
long-term; sponsor Novo Nordisk reenlisted
during the offseason with a multiyear deal.
