Chip Ganassi Racing

Chip Ganassi created his own one-car Indy car team in 1990. Today, his racing empire includes entries in the NTT IndyCar Series, NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and World Endurance Championship.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s open-wheel teams have amassed 12 championships and more than 100 wins, while overall his teams can claim 19 championships and more than 200 wins.

Chip Ganassi Racing solidified its place in open-wheel racing history, becoming the first team to amass four consecutive CART championships with Jimmy Vasser (1996), Alex Zanardi (1997-98) and rookie Juan Pablo Montoya (1999).

Following a switch from CART to the NTT IndyCar Series in 2003, Ganassi and driver Scott Dixon captured the championship. Dixon claimed his second title for Ganassi in 2008, while Dario Franchitti won three straight series titles from 2009-11, allowing the team to amass another four consecutive Indy car titles. Dixon won his third title with a dramatic rally in the final third of the 2013 season and claimed the 2015 title on a tiebreaker after claiming a win in the season finale.

In 2010, Ganassi was responsible for the first American auto racing “Triple Crown” (Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 wins) and added the first-ever “Chip Slam” of motorsports to his resume with a victory in the 2011 Rolex 24 At Daytona (holding all four major titles at one time).

For 2019, Chip Ganassi Racing has a two-car lineup with Dixon in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing entry and Rookie of the Year candidate Felix Rosenqvist in the No. 10 NTT DATA Chip Ganassi Racing entry.
