Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing

In its third decade of existence, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing continues to exemplify its hallmarks of performance and professionalism. Indy car racing has always been the foundation of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing since 1992, when 1986 Indianapolis 500 champion Bobby Rahal and Carl Hogan formed the team’s first incarnation, Rahal Hogan Racing.

Rahal and late-night television icon David Letterman formed a partnership in 1996 to create Team Rahal. The name of the team was formally changed in 2004 to Rahal Letterman Racing, to more accurately reflect Letterman’s involvement. Mi-Jack co-owner Michael Lanigan joined the team as a co-owner in 2010.

Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s driver lineup over the years has included a who’s who of Indy car stars: Bobby Rahal, Bryan Herta, Max Papis, Jimmy Vasser, Michel Jourdain Jr., Kenny Brack, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Vitor Meira, Danica Patrick, Buddy Rice, Scott Sharp and Oriol Servia.

For 2020, 2017 Indianapolis 500 winner Takuma Sato continues with the team in 2019 alongside Graham Rahal, who will race in his eighth full-time season driving for his father’s team.
