IN HIS OWN WORDS:

(About working teaming with Scott Dixon): “Scott is a legend of Indy car racing. Been so successful over the years. He's one of if not the best person you can learn from. So I'm really going to take advantage of that, try and scrape every bit of knowledge out of him, and take it to my advantage. There is a wealth of resources in this team, it's really going to be helpful. I think Scott is also a great guy off the track. Looking forward to working with him.”

Chip Ganassi Racing

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

Chip Ganassi Racing’s open-wheel teams have amassed 11 championships and more than 100 wins, while overall his teams can claim 18 championships and recently earned its milestone 200th win when it won the GT Le Mans class at the 2018 Rolex 24 at Daytona.

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 Verizon 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 2018, Chip Ganassi Racing has a two-car lineup with Dixon in the familiar No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing entry and 2017 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Ed Jones in the No. 10 NTT DATA Chip Ganassi Racing entry.
