TEAM INFO

Chip Ganassi created his own one-car INDYCAR SERIES team in 1990. Today, his racing empire includes entries in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, IMSA and Extreme E. 

Chip Ganassi Racing's open-wheel teams have amassed 14 championships and more than 120 wins, while overall his teams can claim 21 championships and more than 240 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 2022, Chip Ganassi Racing has expanded to a four-car lineup. Swede Marcus Ericsson returns for his third 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. Defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Alex Palou will power the No. 10 NTT DATA Chip Ganassi Racing entry, Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is his second season, but first as a full-time driver in the No. 48 Carvana Chip Ganassi Racing entry, with 2004 INDYCAR SERIES champion and 2013 Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan joining the team for the Indianapolis 500.
