NASCAR team owner Chip Ganassi had surgery Sunday to repair a broken clavicle – the injury sustained while Ganassi was cycling in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday. The team said the surgery was successful and Ganassi is expected to be in Richmond, Virginia, this weekend for the final race to set the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff field at Richmond International Raceway . Ganassi sent out the following message on social media: "Ok ok. I fell off my bicycle Saturday. Thank you Dr Jim Bradley for putting me back together!" Ganassi driver Jamie McMurray is currently the top-ranked driver without a win and sits 12th in the Chase Grid. Should he qualify for the Chase and he just needs to start the event at Richmond to do that, he would be the first Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates post-season entry since Juan Pablo Montoya made the Chase in 2009. The team's other driver, Kyle Larson , is ranked 19th but could earn an automatic Chase berth with a win in Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM)

Team owner won at the Brickyard in 2010 with driver Jamie McMurray Indianapolis Motor Speedway holds a special spot in Chip Ganassi's heart, as a backdrop to his five starts as an IndyCar driver to his five wins as a car owner -- one in NASCAR and four in the Indianapolis 500. The track's rich history, the sense of place -- all are palpable when his team sets up camp in Gasoline Alley for a race weekend in either series. But despite his fondness for Indy, Ganassi insists there's not a Target-red marker to circle the Speedway's place on the NASCAR calendar for emphasis. With seven races left to get his drivers Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson in position for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs, the 57-year-old team owner said each event carries its own importance. "I don't think there's any extra pressure. If there's any pressure at all, it's every race," Ganassi says. "There's a certain amount that goes with every event, but I mean, Indy is in some sense a big event and I know our guys like big events. In another sense, it's just another race and we want to approach it the same way, but we're certainly excited about going there." The sense of time and place is also meaningful for McMurray heading into Sunday's Crown Royal Presents the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard (3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, IMS, SiriusXM), an event he won as part of his banner season of 2010, his first with the team that is now known as Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates. In some ways, McMurray says, his Brickyard victory seems like a distant memory but in other ways not as much. Ganassi's longest-tenured driver said he often frames events now in relation to his children's ages. At the time of his Indy win, his wife, Christy, was pregnant with the couple's first child, Carter -- now 4 1/2 years old. Their status as happy parents-to-be comes through in all the photos from Victory Lane and the traditional kiss of the yard of bricks at the start-finish line, but so is the joy shared by Ganassi and Sabates savoring their first stock-car triumph at the birthplace of Indianapolis-style racing . The venerable Speedway certainly remains cherished, but McMurray said the approach doesn't change for this weekend. "I don't remember Chip ever mentioning anything about this race being more important to him than any other race, even though he has the background with the IndyCar team and has the shop based there," McMurray said. "It was a really big deal for us to be able to win there in 2010 -- the pictures, the memories … I loved getting to watch the TV footage afterward of how excited Chip was with Felix being able to win there. But honestly, I don't remember him ever mentioning anything about we need to put more effort into this weekend over any other." Some extra effort will be necessary this weekend, if only because a new, high-drag aero package awaits Sprint Cup teams. To help teams adjust to the rules changes, Friday practice has been expanded to three sessions totaling four hours and 40 minutes, an increase of one hour, 25 minutes from 2014. The extra time might be welcome for crew chiefs such as Matt McCall , in his first year overseeing McMurray's No. 1 Chevrolet. A raised rear spoiler and other aero devices are expected to produce closer, almost pack-style racing at Indianapolis this weekend and at Michigan International Speedway next month but McCall said he's reserving judgment on how cars will react until his team can log track time. "Obviously, you've got wind tunnel data to think you know what it's going to be like, but until they actually make some laps …," McCall said, trailing off with a slight shrug. "I think a couple of cars put the package on at the Chicago test (last week), so with a little bit of feedback, we'll be able to pay attention to that. Still, once you get most of the cars on the race track, you'll get a better idea of what will happen. "It's different, so that's sort of good. Any type of change that'll get your mind thinking a different way, I'm all about it. Sometimes the setup gets so repetitive that it's the same every single week, so pretty cool to have a chance to play on something different." NASCAR officials instituted a low-downforce package two weeks ago at Kentucky Speedway, producing a harder-to-handle car that placed greater emphasis on driver input. The result was the most competitive Sprint Cup race -- measured in green-flag passes -- in the series' five-year run in the Bluegrass State. The widely different trim of the Indianapolis package may be signaling a shift toward track-specific setups, all in the hope of promoting better racing with tailor-made aerodynamics. With that concept just beginning to take root, Ganassi said it's still too early to weigh potential benefits against possible drawbacks. "I have mixed feelings about it and what I've found, I had some feelings about the Kentucky package that really were unfounded concerns, I realized later," Ganassi said. "So I want to be careful what I say about Indianapolis and kind of go in with an open mind. I think in one sense, it's a bit of an equalizer in that no one's tested that package there. So it's going to be interesting to see what happens and it could be an advantage for us." FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
Team will field two Ford GTs in full IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in 2016 Chip Ganassi has achieved legendary status as a team owner in NASCAR, sports cars and IndyCar racing , with victories in many of the world's most prestigious races, including the Daytona 500 , Indianapolis 500, Rolex 24 At Daytona and Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. Ganassi joined top Ford executives in announcing an ambitious new program for the Ford GT race car at a press conference Friday in Le Mans, France, ahead of this weekend's 24 Hours of Le Mans. With Ford's backing, Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates will field two Ford GTs in the full IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in 2016, beginning with the Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 30-31. The team also will field two cars in the FIA World Endurance Championship. All four cars are expected to compete in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans, marking the 50th Anniversary of Ford's overall victory in the prestigious endurance race. "At Ganassi Racing , we've won 17 major championships over the years; over 160 races," said Ganassi . "We've won the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500 , the 24 Hours of Daytona and the Twelve Hours of Sebring, but we've never run at Le Mans. I can tell you, we want to win this race, and when Ford presented us that opportunity, a chance to compete here, well, what race team wouldn't want to be a part of that?" The seeds for this opportunity with Ford were sown in 2013, when the team announced a new partnership with Ford to supply the team's Riley Daytona Prototypes with 3.5-liter, twin-turbo, V-6 EcoBoost power. Only those on the inside had any inkling that this racing program was doubling as a development program for an engine that will power not only the new Ford GT race car, but also the production version of the Ford GT race car that was launched to overwhelming fanfare at the North American International Auto Show this past January. A couple of weeks after that new car was introduced, NASCAR stars Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray combined with IndyCar stars Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan to win the Rolex 24 At Daytona in Ganassi's No. 02 Ford EcoBoost/Riley DP. "We spent the last year and a half getting a better understanding of each other's strengths, while jointly developing the engine that will be in the race car and the road car," Ganassi said. "We're very proud of that." Ganassi isn't the only one. IMSA CEO Ed Bennett was in the audience for Friday's highly anticipated announcement and was equally proud of the attention given to the technology transfer story. "It's an exciting time with a really exciting car," Bennett said. "The fact that the engine technology was developed in the Daytona Prototype the last couple of years with the EcoBoost V6 and now it's being applied to this car, it's the ultimate validation of what a racing program can do." Everybody will get their first opportunity to see what this new racing program can do for the first time next Jan. 30-31 in the 54th Rolex 24 At Daytona. "It shows a clear commitment from Ford for sports car racing , and it's obviously a fantastic, significant development for the TUDOR Championship," Bennett said. "We couldn't be more proud that the first place this car will race is at the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona, which will also be the first chance to show off the new Daytona Rising upgrades to the facility. "A brand-new facility, and a brand-new Ford GT racing program – for all that to happen together, in a 24-hour environment – will be very exciting, and very special."

RELATED: Pit crew rankings after Chicagoland After the second race of the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway , PitTalks.com ranks the 16 Chase teams' pit crews For more pit crew news provided by PitTalks.com come back throughout the Chase. No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Kurt Busch Rank: 1 (+1) Wins: 2 -- Richmond and Michigan Notes: The No. 41 crew did what any great crew does: They just stayed consistent. After struggles among the other top three teams after Chicago, this group finds themselves in the No. 1 spot. From the hunter to the hunted ... welcome to the top, boys! No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota pit crew for Matt Kenseth Rank: 2 (+4) Wins: 5 -- Bristol, Pocono, Michigan, Richmond, New Hampshire Notes: This crew was the best team with the worst ranking at the beginning of the Chase. Well, they have now moved into the No. 2 spot with a great day on pit road and a second week in a row with solid stops. No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota pit crew for Denny Hamlin Rank: 3 (-2) Wins: 2 -- Martinsville, (All Star Race), Chicago Notes: After two weeks the No. 11 crew falls out of the No. 1 spot. They struggled on Stop 3 with a slow left rear change. With that they fall to the third spot for this week. No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Kevin Harvick Rank: 4 (+3) Wins: 2 -- Las Vegas and Phoenix Notes: This team was fast during stops Sunday, and we moved them up a few notches in the rankings. There was some concern that the car didn't get filled on the last pit stop, but due to the fact that many others ran out of gas, too, I don't think it was the crew but more the circumstances. No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Jamie McMurray Rank: 5 (even) Wins: 0 Notes: This crew is hard to rank. The car is not running good enough to see them pit under pressure, and they are not being given the chance to potentially move up. They're just kind of staying put in the fifth position. No. 22 Team Penske Ford pit crew for Joey Logano Rank: 6 (-3) Wins: 3 -- Daytona, Watkins Glen, Bristol Notes: This crew had some really fast stops and some really slow ones in New Hampshire. On two separate stops they had trouble on the rear, losing positions on both. That lands them three spots back from third to sixth. No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota pit crew for Carl Edwards Rank: 7 (-3) Wins: 2 -- Charlotte and Darlington Notes: For the most part, this group had pretty good speed on their stops. A penalty on the gas man during the third stop for having equipment out of the box is what lands them three spots back. No. 2 Team Penske Ford pit crew for Brad Keselowski Rank: 8 (even) Wins: 1 -- Fontana Notes: This team had a really good week on pit road and under normal circumstances they would have moved up a few spots. With some top teams moving back and no problems on the teams directly in front of them, they find themselves staying put in the eighth position. No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Ryan Newman Rank: 9 (+1) Wins: 0 Notes: This group seemed to have a pretty solid day in helping Newman to a top-10 finish. Being that they pitted the night before in Kentucky and pitted Sunday on 3 hours of sleep, I have to give them an "atta boy" nod and they move up one spot. No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota pit crew for Kyle Busch Rank: 10 (-1) Wins: 4 -- Sonoma , Kentucky, New Hampshire, Indianapolis Notes: This team had a lot going on this week and I think they handled it all pretty well. They lost one spot on Stop 2, but other than that they seemed to have adjusted to their new front changer quite well. No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet pit crew for Jimmie Johnson Rank: 11 (even) Wins: 4 -- Atlanta, Texas, Kansas, Dover Notes: This team did nothing bad this week but didn't seem to do anything great. They suffered a flat tire during the race but were able to get their driver back on the track quickly and help salvage a sixth-place finish. No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet pit crew for Jeff Gordon Rank: 12 (+1) Wins: 0 Notes: Solid day by the No. 24 crew and no mistakes. They had a better day than their Hendrick teammates, so we moved them up a spot. No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet pit crew for Dale Earnhardt Jr . Rank: 13 (-1) Wins: 2 -- Talladega, Daytona Notes: Not a terrible day by the No. 88 crew, but they seemed to have a slow first stop and a slow two-tire stop toward the end. Running out of gas at the end didn't seem to help things but we can't put that on the pit crew. Many other cars ran out, as well. No. 15 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota pit crew for Clint Bowyer Rank: 14 (even) Wins: 0 Notes: Without enough information on their stops, we can't move them up or down on just a guess. The No. 15 crew stays at the 14th spot and if they don't win this week, it might be the last ranking they get. No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Martin Truex Rank: 15 (even) Wins: 1 - Pocono Notes: This team got two new tire changers this week and from what we could tell, they averted a mass destruction. Just because they didn't have a major screwup doesn't mean they did anything great, either. We left them at the 15th spot for this week. No. 27 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet pit crew for Paul Menard Rank: 16 (even) Wins: 0 Notes: We wish we had more to judge off of for this team. They finished 15th and ran mid-pack most of the day at Loudon. They need a win to advance or this could be their last ranking, as well. For more pit crew news, visit PitTalks.com
Michael Waltrip Racing co-owner Rob Kauffman talks about future plans to integrate MWR with Chip Ganassi Racing with whom he has purchased interest.
Dylan Kwasniewski will also get behind wheel of No. 42 Team owners Chip Ganassi and Harry Scott Jr. announced a formal merger of their partnership in the NASCAR XFINITY Series on Thursday, forging a single-car team under the new name of HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi for 2015. The team announced that Kyle Larson , the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year, and NASCAR Next alumnus Dylan Kwasniewski will be among the drivers of the No. 42 Chevrolet.

Larson, 22, scored two wins for the team last season under its former Turner Scott Motorsports umbrella, breaking through at Auto Club Speedway in his home state of California for his first victory in the Nationwide Series, which will be backed by XFINITY in 2015. Larson prevailed again at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May. Kwasniewski competed in a full rookie season on the Nationwide Series circuit last year, driving 28 of 33 races in Turner Scott's No. 31 Chevy and the rest in the No. 42. The 19-year-old Las Vegas native won the pole position for the season opener at Daytona International Speedway and wound up 11th in the final 2014 standings. Ganassi , a former IndyCar driver who became a team owner in the premier NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2001, fielded teams in what is now the XFINITY Series from 2004-08, netting six wins among four drivers -- Reed Sorenson , Jamie McMurray , Casey Mears and Juan Pablo Montoya . The team will operate out of the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates race shop in Concord, North Carolina. Scott also announced a partnership with road racer Justin Marks for a four-car operation in the developmental NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks will field entries for returning driver Scott Heckert and three rookie contenders -- William Byron, 17; J.J. Haley, 15; and Dalton Sargeant, 16.
