SONOMA, Calif. (AP)

Chip Ganassi says a report that several team owners are lining up investors to buy IndyCar is ''news to me.''

Ganassi is one of the most powerful owners in IndyCar, and likely would be privy to such talks. Speed.com this week reported owners want to take control of IndyCar in a bid to oust CEO Randy Bernard.

IndyCar is owned by the Hulman-George family, and Bernard reports to a board of directors.

Ganassi said Friday at Sonoma that he believes the future of IndyCar is bright, and fans don't care who owns the series.

He also said he believes team owners and IndyCar are closer to a resolution on the cost of spare parts. Chassis manufacturer Dallara steeply raised the prices on parts, one of the most contentious issues between team owners and Bernard.
