IndyCar Edit

For 2005 Briscoe drove for Chip Ganassi Racing. Chip Ganassi struggled through the season even with Scott Dixon and this was to be a largely dissapointing year for the team. Ryans best result was an 8th place at the Nashville oval. At the Chicagoland oval Ryan was involved in a massive crash.
