Verizon IndyCar Series team owner Chip Ganassi has been inducted into the Motorsport Hall of Fame of America.
The Target Chip Ganassi team owner who led his team to the championship in 2016 with Scott Dixon winning his fourth Verizon IndyCar Series. Ganassi commented on his induction by saying:
I always liked motorsports and I always appreciated the different forms of it, I started out in go-karts and snowmobiles and dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles. So I always enjoyed different kinds of motorsports and I always appreciated the winners and champions in all those different forms. Just the fact that they’re on a motorcycle versus an Indy car or a snowmobile instead of a Cup car, they’re still champions and the competition is just as fierce at every level. That’s why I’ve always enjoyed the different forms of the sport.
Ganassi went on to say:
No team owner, no team representative can do it on their own, It takes a team and I’ve been lucky to work with some great people over the years.
