(after winning the 2013 Indianapolis 500): "I wanted this all my life. ... I was looking in the stands and it was unbelievable. I'm speechless. This is it. I made it."
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 fields two full-time Verizon IndyCar Series entries in 2018 with an all-Brazilian lineup featuring 2004 series champion and 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan, who will drive the famed No. 14 ABC Supply Chevrolet, and rookie Matheus “Matt” Leist, who won the Freedom 100 Indy Lights event in 2017, in the No. 4 ABC Supply Chevrolet. Entering its 14th season, ABC Supply is currently the longest active team sponsor in the series.
