Ganassi is weird top team. Only one competitive car, pay drivers, and the only other top level talent now leaves for a lower level team. Odd. Though I'm sure spam will be a top level team moving g forward, just seems odd that ganassi can't even keep 2 competitive drivers together, whereas Penske does 3-4. Also, this means no additional entry for Johnson? Its dixon and ericson full time only with Johnson part time?

Remember when ganassi had Kanaan park it mid race without the car being damaged? That was odd, too. I just dont get that team sometimes. Other than having an all time great for a long time now.

Johnson is only going to do the road and street courses. However, I would be surprised if he didn't race in the 500.

I don't think Mrs Johnson is so keen on him doing the 500. Every time I've heard him asked it's hinted around as the reason

McLaughlin is set for a full-season in 2021, with Team Penske running a four-car lineup.

Big feather in Scotty's cap although sad to see him go as because he's left, there's nothing tying Penske to DJR so Roger's sold his share of the Supercars team back to Dick Johnson and Ryan Story. Especially since Supercars Gen3 cars are Mustang v Camaro, ie: US cars. Back to topic, shall be interesting to see how he goes with ovals since he'll go very well in the road courses.

Would his time in Indycar be a way to enter NASCAR? (as this is one is ultimate goals)

He's got to pick one or the other, trying to get to used to entirely different cars and driving styles won't go well. Think the Captain will decide for him, fast in Indy he's staying in that series for the Southern Hemisphere eyes and a new generation to continue that tradition. Not like the upside down drivers aren't at the front of the field already but give him a year to grow while Dixie and Power are getting closer to moving on.



Sato staying with RLL to no one's surprise really. Sounds like extension for 21 only. https://racer.com/2020/10/24/sato-signs-rll-extension/

Jimmie's car will be the 48 Carvana car, livery to be unveiled later. It's only entered for the street and road course events, no ovals on the program. https://racer.com/2020/10/24/carvana...nassi-indycar/

It's entered as Carvana Chip Ganassi rather than just under his banner, guessing extra money gets you better perks. Penske does that in sportscars to separate the pit boxes, didn't know they had to pit together as a team if 2 cars under the same banner. Don't think Indy has that rule though.

Not yet but Geico already was running an ad within their ad. Insurance company ad with a diamond company ad within it.

Hey, someone has to pay the network management multiple 10s of millions per year. And yet a couple networks ate claiming poverty now and may have to leave cable to make their own streaming service to provide "quality" entertainment for us. Looking at you Discovery and ESPN.

Thought i heard Ganassi's #48 would enter for a full season with a different driver doing the Oval tracks...

Also, interesting that McLaughlin went the Indy Car route, not NASCAR like Marcos Ambrose...

All the rumors were a split program on the forums and comments sections but never even hinted at in articles. I'm guessing this is a Jimmie only deal and they aren't paying for an oval runner.

If you have the Penske choice learn to drive an Indy car over Nascar. Road course heavy and they're much more dominant of a team in Indy. Ovals didn't seem great for Ambrose, he was getting better but was much further in front on the road courses

This isn't really to do with IndyCar as such but Power would like a crack at Bathurst with McLaughlin.

Well Marco better be making the speaking tour rounds or something in the off-season. Sato's attempt at a move late in the race, and Marco's performance all season, cost him the million bucks in Winner's Circle payout. And about 15-20% of the budget for 2021.

Ericsson to remain at Ganassi.
Not really a surprise I think?
