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 and NASCAR Cup Series

Chip Ganassi Racing's open-wheel teams have amassed 13 championships and more than 100 wins, while overall his teams can claim 20 championships and more than 225 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, claimed the 2015 title on a tiebreaker after claiming a win in the season finale, continued the championship legacy with his fifth championship in 2018, and solidified his legendary status with his sixth championship in 2020.

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 2021, Chip Ganassi Racing has expanded to a four-car lineup. Swede Marcus Ericsson returns for his second season in the No. 8 Huski Chocolate Chip Ganassi Racing entry. Scott Dixon continues his quest for his seventh championship in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing entry. Spaniard Alex Palou joins the team in the No. 10 NTT DATA Chip Ganassi Racing entry, Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson begins a new chapter of his legendary motorsports career in the No. 48 Carvana Chip Ganassi Racing entry for the road/street events, with 2004 INDYCAR SERIES champion and 2013 Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan taking the reins for the four oval events.
