I missed something a couple of weeks ago. Amid all of the hoopla surrounding Tony Kanaan last week, and whether he had already been signed by Arrow McLaren SP (AMSP) for the 2023 Indianapolis 500 or another team – somehow I missed the fact that NTT Data was moving from Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) to AMSP.

It has almost become a rite of passage in the offseason, to look at the changes that have taken place at AJ Foyt Enterprise and proclaim them to be much improved for the upcoming season. That is followed by a similar ritual several months later, of saying that nothing has changed.
