Ed Carpenter Racing

In late 2011, Ed Carpenter Racing was created with Ed Carpenter himself assuming responsibilities of both owner and driver.

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.

Pigot was named the full-time driver of ECR’s No. 21 entry in 2018 and scored his first Indy car podium with a second place at Iowa Speedway. Carpenter, who shared the No. 20 car with British rookie Jordan King – scored his third Indianapolis 500 pole and finished second in the race, which saw ECR expand to three cars as Danica Patrick joined the team to close out her motorsports career.

In 2019, ECR and Scuderia Corsa will combine their efforts to field Ed Jones in 13 of 17 events. Jones will join Carpenter in the No. 20, handling the road and street course events as Carpenter continues to drive on the ovals.

Jones will shift to the No. 64 Ed Carpenter Racing Scuderia Corsa Chevrolet for the Indianapolis 500 as ECR moves back to a three-car lineup. Pigot will drive the No. 21 in his fourth year with ECR and his second season as the team’s full-time driver.
