For 2016 season bodywork updates were issued by both manufacturers to their aerokits. Compared to the Chevrolet aero kit, the Honda kit saw numerous changes, with the front wing being altered from a stacked triple element, to a simpler dual element section, with a new endplate section introduced. In addition, new sidepods were introduced on the road course kit, while a new tyre ramp was introduced with it, and vents were added to the rear wing endplates. In response to the flipping incidents of Chevrolet powered cars at the 2015 Indianapolis 500, domed skids were reintroduced to the series. Zylon bodywork tethers were also added to the cars, to prevent loose bodywork from leaving a car, and striking another competitor, following the death of Justin Wilson, who was struck by loose bodywork.
In 2016 Tony Kannan drove Chevrolet-powered Dallara for Chip Ganassi Racing alongside Scott Dixon, Max Chilton, and Charlie Kimball. He finished the season 7th with 461 points and two podiums finishing 2nd at Road America and 3rd at Texas.
