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.”

Ed Carpenter Racing

In late 2011, Ed Carpenter Racing was created with Ed Carpenter himself assuming responsibilities of both owner and driver with full support from Indiana-based Fuzzy’s Vodka.

Carpenter drove the full 2012 and 2013 seasons in his own car, scoring his first win as both owner and driver in the team’s first season. The Indianapolis native solidified his status as a hometown favorite when he won back-to-back pole positions for the 2013 and 2014 Indianapolis 500s.

Heading into 2014, Carpenter shifted his driving focus exclusively to ovals and hired Mike Conway to compete in the road and street course events. ECR won three races in 2014 – Carpenter at Texas Motor Speedway and Conway at Long Beach and the second of the Toronto doubleheader events. 

ECR combined with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing for 2015, forming a two-car effort known as CFH Racing. Prior to the 2016 season, Carpenter resumed full ownership and Ed Carpenter Racing returned. Full-time driver Josef Newgarden scored three wins in those two seasons, including leading teammate Luca Filippi to the team’s first-ever 1-2 finish.

After three years of driving for ECR during the Month of May, JR Hildebrand stepped into the full-time role in 2017 and scored two podium finishes. Carpenter qualified second for the Indianapolis 500, his third front row start in five years and the team’s fourth. Spencer Pigot, who joined the team midway through the 2016 season as the road and street course driver, retained his role for a second year.

In 2018, Carpenter will race at all oval events in the No. 20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet while British newcomer Jordan King will take over for the road and street courses. Pigot has been elevated to drive the No. 21 Chevrolet full-time and will compete in all Verizon IndyCar Series races.
