Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan

The formation of Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan was announced on February 5, 2018. It is led by veteran driver and team owner Dale Coyne, 1996 Indy car champion Jimmy Vasser and sports marketer James "Sulli" Sullivan.

Dale Coyne Racing has a long and storied history in Indy car racing. Starting in 1984 as an owner/driver, Dale Coyne ran seven seasons in CART. In 1990, he focused his efforts on the tutelage of several up-and-coming drivers. In July 2009, the team celebrated its first win with Justin Wilson at Watkins Glen. Wilson would also win at Texas Motor Speedway in 2012, and Mike Conway added a third in the first race of the 2013 Belle Isle doubleheader weekend.

Rookie Carlos Huertas made a surprising run to the checkered flag to win the first Houston race in 2014, notching the team’s fourth career triumph while Bourdais marked his return to the team by winning the 2017 season opener at St. Petersburg and the first race of 2018 as well.

Vasser and Sullivan previously successfully collaborated and were partners at KV Racing Technology and KVSH Racing, The combination won six races including the 2013 Indianapolis 500 with driver Tony Kanaan and five more over the next three years (2014-2016) with Bourdais behind the wheel.
