Admittedly this news isn't directly related to Indy Cars, but it does involve Classy Chip Ganassi and the most amusing racing team nickname ever.
Teresa Earnhardt and Chip Ganassi will combine their sponsorship-strapped race teams next season, an effort to stabilize their organizations in a tough economic time.Did you catch that? Chip Ganassi's team is merging with the late Dale Earnhart's team? Chip, Dale. I know Disney owns ESPN, the new network of the N-Word, but...You gotta be kidding me!
The combined team will be called Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates and will field cars for Martin Truex, Aric Almirola, Juan Pablo Montoya and a driver yet to be named.
Both teams said details of the new organization will be announced later.

Incredibly, there's even an official racing game for the team.
