Stewart supports another "double" for Busch


Former Verizon IndyCar Series champion Tony Stewart said he would endorse another attempt at "the double" from Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch.

"I'm 100 percent supportive if he wants to do that again," Stewart said. "I thought for somebody that had not been in an IndyCar to go over there, and as tough as the IndyCar Series is right now, to have a performance like that was unbelievable. He did a phenomenal job."

CFH Racing lands deal with State of Indiana


Indiana Secretary of Commerce Victor Smith joined CSH Racing co-owners Sarah Fisher and Ed Carpenter in announcing a partnership in which the state will be an associate sponsor on CFH Racing cars for the Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis, the Indianapolis 500 and the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season-concluding GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma.

"Indiana is recognized as the motorsports capital of the world and we're building a reputation we like to say as 'a state that works,'" Smith said during the brief ceremony at the Performance Racing Industry trade show at the Indiana Convention Center. "This Hoosier team has delivered on the racetrack and it mirrors our state's success in building an economy and business environment that is attracting billions of dollars in investment."

Motorsports in Indiana is a multimillion dollar industry that employees thousands of individuals. IUPUI, a university in downtown Indianapolis, has the only motorsports engineering undergrad and graduate programs in the nation, and the Dallara IndyCar Factory next door to the CFH Racing facility supports multiple motorsports platforms.

Chaves wins awards, races in Colombia


Gabby Chaves, the 2014 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires champion, was named Colombia's "Driver of the Year" and "Star Driver" a few days after he teamed with Juan Gonzalez and Juan Alzate to win the 6 Hours of Bogota sports car race Dec. 6 at Autodrome Tocancipa in Colombia.

The trio covered the 250 laps on the 1.68-mile circuit with a two-lap advantage over the second-place team. Chaves also co-drove to victory in the Super GT class (fifth overall) with Juan Piedrahita (seventh in 2014 Indy Lights standings with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports with Curb-Agajanian), Diego Mejia and Oscar Tunjo. Chaves co-drove to the class victory in 2013.

"I am very happy to be closing out 2014 with a bang," said Chaves, a native of Colombia who lives in Miami. "The 6 Hours of Bogota is regarded as one of the most important endurance races in South America, and to be able to not only win the overall race but in two classes is just amazing.

"I drove a total of four hours in two different cars. Hopefully such a great season can help facilitate my transition into the Verizon IndyCar Series for 2015.

"I'd like to thank all the INDYCAR, Mazda Road to Indy and Andersen Promotions staffs for being so helpful regarding the scholarship and my negotiations for 2015."

Hunter-Reay prepares to take on world at Race of Champions


It might be a fun, get-to-know-you all-star event, but once helmets are strapped on it transitions to a serious competition.

That's Ryan Hunter-Reay's assessment of the Race of Champions, which he'll participate in Dec. 13-14 at the Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados.

The event brings together some of the world's greatest drivers from major disciplines - the Verizon IndyCar Series, Formula 1, World Rally, Le Mans, MotoGP and NASCAR - for head-to-head contests in identical machinery on a parallel course.

Hunter-Reay, the reigning Indianapolis 500 Mile Race champion, competed in the Race of Champions in Thailand following his 2012 Verizon IndyCar Series championship season. The event was not held in 2013.

"It is all fun and casual, and everybody is patting each other on the back until you line up next to each other and it's like the championship is on the line," said the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., resident who will enter his sixth season with Andretti Autosport in 2015. "You have an opportunity to beat some of the best drivers in the world."

Ganassi confirms Kanaan, Dixon for 2015 IndyCar season


Tony Kanaan, who closed his first season with Chip Ganassi Racing Teams with a victory in the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season finale at Auto Club Speedway, will return to the No. 10 car with NTT DATA as the primary sponsor.

The 2004 Verizon IndyCar Series champion and 2013 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race winner recorded five podium finishes in the final seven races of 2014. He'll continue the legacy of the No. 10 car, which boasts 20 wins by Kanaan, Dario Franchitti (13) and Dan Wheldon (6) dating to 2006.

"I can't wait to begin working with everyone at NTT DATA," Kanaan said. "I know and have worked with them before so this will be great. As for the team, we really started to come together at the end of last season and although we ended on a high note with the win in Fontana I think we had a legitimate chance to win a few more times. We have a year under our belt working together now and I expect to be contending more consistently in 2015."
