A.J. Foyt Enterprises

AJ Foyt Racing has been competing at the top levels of motorsports since December 1965. With team owner A.J. Foyt driving, the team won two Indianapolis 500s (1967, 1977) and three national Indy car championships (1967, 1975, 1979). Foyt won 35 of his record 67 victories driving for his own team.

Since Foyt’s retirement from driving in 1993, the team has continued to win, claiming two more Indy car titles (1996, 1998) and eight race victories, including the 1999 Indianapolis 500 with driver Kenny Brack.

Larry Foyt, A.J.’s youngest son, gave up a driving career in NASCAR to join the team in 2006. Appointed team president in 2015, he has been the driving force behind many of the team’s improvements in recent years.

AJ Foyt Racing will field two full-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES entries in 2021 with four-time INDYCAR SERIES champion Sebastien Bourdais racing the famed No. 14 Chevrolet and Dalton Kellett racing the No. 4 Chevrolet.
