Team owner Chip Ganassi told the Associated Press this current storm has been blown out of proportion by the media and is much ado about nothing.
"Every year you've got the same old people asking the same old questions and the fact of the matter is IndyCar racing goes up and down with the rest of the economy. For five people in the press to be wound up about it, it is not really having the finger on the pulse of what's going on," he said Monday. "Everything is fine. We have the same old problems today that we did before Randy got there. A lousy TV package, the same old gravitational problems any sport has today.
"It's the offseason and there's nothing else to talk about So everybody just take a deep breath."

He is not prone to overpromising anything and he has impeccable credibility, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt - for now.
