Ganassi to stay in the IRL

Chip Ganassi says that he is not planning to switch his team from the Indy Racing League into the rival Champ Car World Series next year. There had been speculation that Ganassi might change camps because Toyota is pulling out of the series. Ganassi says that he is now in talk with Honda about a supply of engines and it is believe that Team Penske is involved in similar discussions. Honda is going to have to increase its engine supplies considerably as both Toyota and Chevrolet are pulling out at the end of the year, leaving Honda to supply everyone.
