'Nothing like it': Michael Cannon reflects on returning Foyt to front of the Indy 500 grid

'nothing like it': michael cannon reflects on returning foyt to front of the indy 500 grid

INDIANAPOLIS -- At the one race and track on the IndyCar schedule where advantages in engineering can make the difference between eternal glory and a year full of what ifs, Michael Cannon has been the talk of the paddock.

AJ Foyt Racing's technical director, hired away from Chip Ganassi Racing for the start of the 2023 campaign, oversaw the return to glory of the team's Indianapolis 500 program a year ago -- one that delivered two cars to the Fast 12, put one car on the inside of Row 2 and had Santino Ferrucci contending in the final laps. Just months later, the series learned that Team Penske had struck a deal for a technical alliance with Foyt, a deal seen initially as a goodwill gesture from the series' owner to try and give a lift to his lifelong friend's fledgling IndyCar team.
