Lloyd Leaves Ganassi

UPDATE: Lloyd just tweeted "Time for a HER and a quick gym session...."

Sounds like either Alex and HER still have an acive buisness relationship or he's still got a few free cases left over from the Month of May


After a year and a half, it looks like 24 year old Alex Lloyd will be leaving Target Chip Ganassi Racing after tweeting:

"So I have decided to leave Ganassi Racing. I need to explore my options and get into a race car and to do that I need to be a free agent."

"CGR have worked hard to find funding and I appreciate their efforts, I need to get back behind the wheel and this gives me my best chance.

Lloyd, who's the only driver to have won a race on on both the oval and road coarse at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, made 2 Indycar starts with TCG including the 08' and 09' Indianapolis 500's.

What it could mean:

If I were Lloyd, there's no way I would leave one of the two best teams in the IRL without knowing I had a ride somewhere else. Maybe it's here in the Indycar Series, Firestone Indy Lights or somewhere else, but he has got to have something in the works.

After another Robin Rumor came out a couple weeks ago, that Dixon could be leaving for Gil de Ferran Motorsports thus leaving a full season seat open, why would he leave if he thought that he had any shot at it. Either A, Robin Miller is wrong and Dixon is staying. Or B, Chip flat out told the young driver that it's not his.

If the #9 seat does open up, here could be some of the contenders:

  • Danica Patrick
  • Tony Kanaan
  • Will Power
