Chip Ganassi on 2018 lineup: 'It's going to look the same'

Chip Ganassi says his organization is "going to look the same" next year as Silly Season rumors swirl around the NASCAR garage.

The statement came Thursday morning when Ganassi was asked on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's Tradin' Paint about how confident he was for 2018 when it came to his current stable of drivers, crew chiefs and sponsors.

Coming off his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win at Michigan, series points leader #42-Kyle Larson, 24, is an elite driver drawing plenty of commentary on his future. Larson has three career wins and is locked into the playoffs for the second straight year.

Ganassi could have both of his drivers among the championship contenders. Not to be overlooked by his teammate, #1-Jamie McMurray has quietly been putting together one of his best seasons. After compiling 12 top-10 finishes in 2016, McMurray has already knocked down nine top 10s through the first portion of 2017. He sits seventh in the point standings.
