2014 Milwaukee: Charlie Kimball IndyCar Race Preview


Diabetic Living Feature: Charlie Kimball was featured in the 2014 Fall Issue of Diabetic Living Magazine along with his endocrinologist, Dr. Anne Peters. The piece focuses on Dr. Peters and how she helps athletes like Kimball compete in their respective sports while managing their diabetes.

Superstitions or Routine?: Many athletes follow a set of strict superstitions before a big day, but Kimball has put his focus on a routine that addresses both his nerves and his health. His routine starts early by eating a similar breakfast every race day and then eating an identical pre-race meal, consisting of plain chicken with pasta, fruit, and salad. Once he has made it to the grid for pre-race, he goes through a typical preparation routine of getting his helmet ready, chatting with the team, and listening to the National Anthem, but he also makes sure to check his blood sugar levels one last time before getting in the car. The last thing Kimball does before the race starts might be considered a superstition by some – he makes sure to enter the cockpit on the same side every time he gets in the car.

The Origin of the No. 83: Charlie Kimball’s car number (83) has a very special meaning to not only him, but also his father, Gordon, and team owner, Chip Ganassi. In 1983 Chip Ganassi had his best finish at the Indianapolis 500 while driving a car that was designed by engineer and car designer, Gordon Kimball.

Keeping It In The Family: The driver of the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen Chevrolet is not the only Kimball with racing in their blood. Kimball developed his passion for racing after watching his father, Gordon, work as a design engineer for racing powerhouses, McLaren and Ferrari. Kimball’s sister, Rachael, has also made a career out of the sport, working with the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.

Charlie Kimball and No. 83 Novo Nordisk Team

Left Turn Only: Throughout Kimball’s four season Verizon IndyCar Series career, he has qualified in the top 10 six times (Texas 2011, New Hampshire 2011, Kentucky 2011, Texas 2013, Fontana 2013, Iowa 2014) and he has finished in the top 10 eight times (New Hampshire 2011, Indianapolis 2012, Fontana 2012, Indianapolis 2013, Pocono 2013, Fontana 2013, Texas 2014, Iowa 2014) on ovals. While his first podium came on a street course in the streets of Toronto, Kimball’s second podium of his career came on an oval at Pocono Raceway in 2013.

Kimball, on Milwaukee: "I'm looking forward to getting back out on an oval this weekend and competing at the Milwaukee Mile. The Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team has been so strong lately once the green flag drops with solid pit stops, a quick race pace for the No. 83 NovoLog FlexPen Chevrolet, and the right strategy calls. I know I can count on them when it's needed. We haven't always had the best luck at The Mile, but I think Chip Ganassi Racing as a whole is on the upswing. After a good result in Mid-Ohio and a successful test at Sonoma, we can really come back strong these last few races and earn some points toward the championship."
