2014 Fontana: Ryan Briscoe IndyCar Race Preview


Supporting the Michael Fux Foundation: Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) will support the Michael Fux Foundation for the Verizon IndyCar Series finale at Auto Club Speedway with an additional logo on the No. 8 NTT DATA Chevrolet. The Michael Fux Foundationwas established in 2006 with the mission of helping sick and underprivileged children and their families, primarily from Miami Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Caring Center. The foundation achieves these goals by providing financial support to families dealing with the burden of caring for a sick child, granting children’s holiday wishes, and creating facilities for families to access while their children’s are hospitalized.

New Journeys: Nicole Briscoe, wife of Verizon IndyCar Series CGRT driver Ryan Briscoe, announced that she has signed a new contract with ESPN to become a SportsCenter anchor after her role as host of NASCAR Countdown concludes. Nicole, who joined ESPN in 2008, will start her new SportsCenter role in January and the family will relocate to ESPN’s Bristol, Conn. headquarters. “I'm very happy with the opportunities that have been presented to me,” said Briscoe. “ESPN is where I want to be, and I'm excited about starting the next chapter of my career as well as a new adventure for my family.”

Pit-Fit Culture: Fitness is an important part of a Verizon IndyCar Series driver’s preparation for each race, and Briscoe takes this aspect of his job very seriously. Briscoe has become a firm believer in the cross-fit culture that has taken over the fitness world. He began his cross-fit regiment in the garage of a friend a few years ago and has stuck with him as his practice has grown. When Briscoe is in the Indianapolis area, he attends PitFit Training for driver-focused fitness workouts and when he is on the road he follows his own cross-fit workout plan.

Lap Count: Throughout the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season, Briscoe and NTT DATA Racing have completed 2,124 of 2,145 laps or 99% of the seasons’ laps.

Ryan Briscoe and No. 8 NTT DATA Chevrolet

Going Around in Circles: Of Briscoe’s 13 pole positions, seven of those have been on an oval (Chicagoland 2008, Milwaukee 2009, Chicagoland 2009, Kansas 2010, Texas 2010, Chicagoland 2010, Indianapolis 2012) and of his seven wins, four of those have been on an oval (Milwaukee 2008, Kentucky 2009, Chicagoland 2009, Texas 2010).

Briscoe, on Fontana: “It’s hard to believe that it’s already the last race of the season. We had some bad luck in Sonoma, but NTT DATA Chip Ganassi Racing is ready for a last chance to redeem ourselves. We did really well at the last oval we raced on in Milwaukee and we were able to pull some helpful data from the test on Wednesday, so I have a good feeling about this one.”
