Vasser presents former teammate Zanardi for Hall induction
KV Racing Technology co-owner and former CART champion Jimmy Vasser wasn't at Sonoma Raceway for the Open Test.

Vasser was in Detroit where he was slated to introduce former Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Alex Zanardi for induction into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.

Zanardi will join motorsports industry legends Harvey Firestone, Jack Chrisman, Masten Gregory, Brad Lackey, Bud Moore and Robert E. Petersen in the Silver Anniversary class. Also, chassis constructor and technology innovator Bob Riley will receive the Bob Russo Motorsports Heritage Award for his numerous contributions to racing.

Zanardi drove in Formula One before moving to the Target Chip Ganassi Racing Indy car team in 1996, capturing rookie of the year honors and series championships in 1997 and 1998.  More recently, Zanardi has made headlines as an elite Paralympic athlete in handbike cycling, winning a pair of gold medals and a silver while representing his native Italy in the 2012 London Paralympics.
