It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Target Chip Ganassi Racing. On the one hand Scott Dixon and Dan Wheldon are tearing up the IndyCar series. On the other hand...
Co-owner Chip Ganassi has shut down Dario Franchitti's race team because of a lack of sponsorship.Diecast Dude asks simply "NOW Will You Please Go Back To IRL?", although the article notes Mr Judd will likely spend the rest of the year racing (ahem) in the Nationwide Series, a.k.a "N-Word Lights".
Longtime sponsor Coors Light left at the end of last season, and Ganassi was unable to secure funding for Franchitti.
Franchitti ranks 41st in the points standings.
"If I keep going I run the risk of dragging the other two teams down. I don't want to do that," Ganassi told the Associated Press. "There's no money. It makes no sense to be running this out of my pocket. I had to put a stop to it."

Poor Dario. Despite the adage to the contrary you can in fact be a good driver and yet not be able to drive everything.
