An Indianapolis native, Ed Carpenter is an oval specialist. Driving for his team, Ed Carpenter Racing, Carpenter is scheduled to race on the oval tracks in the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. His goal each season is to win the Indianapolis 500, ideally as a driver, but he also would be thrilled to have a teammate win. Entering this season, Carpenter has three INDYCAR SERIES race wins and four poles. Away from the track, you might see Carpenter at a local Indianapolis sporting event since he is a fan of the Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana Pacers and his alma mater, Butler University.
