Marcus Ericsson

Andretti Autosport announced Aug. 23 that Marcus Ericsson will join the team’s 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver lineup alongside confirmed teammates Colton Herta and Kyle Kirkwood.

2022 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge winner Ericsson, from Sweden, will take on his sixth season of NTT INDYCAR SERIES competition in 2024 looking to add to his four race wins and 10 podium finishes. In addition to his INDYCAR SERIES success, Ericsson raced for five seasons in the FIA Formula One World Championship, has claimed championships in both British Formula BMW and Japanese F3 and has race starts in both British F3 and Formula 2 (formerly GP2).

“I’m very happy and proud to be joining Andretti Autosport next season,” Ericsson said. “Andretti is one of the most legendary names in motorsports, so it is definitely a dream come true for me to join this team. I want to thank Michael and Dan (Towriss) for putting their trust in me, and I can’t wait to get to know everyone in the organization.

“It’s a very exciting new chapter in my career, and I’m really looking forward to getting to work achieving our goals together. Exciting times are ahead, and I’m thankful for this opportunity.”

Ericsson, 32, is sixth in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES standings this season with three races remaining and won the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding. He also finished second in the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, falling just short of becoming the first back-to-back winner of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” since Helio Castroneves in 2002.

“Like everyone else, we have paid close attention to Marcus’ success in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and have been impressed with how quickly he proved that he belonged with the frontrunners in what is arguably the most competitive INDYCAR field ever,” said Michael Andretti, chairman and CEO, Andretti Autosport. “It’s no secret that we want to win races and championships and to do that we need drivers like Marcus, who have that natural talent and determined drive. We are excited for the winning mindset that Marcus brings to the table, and I’m eager to see what next season has in store for us.”

More information on Ericsson's 2024 entry, including car number and partners, will be provided later.

Ericsson will join Andretti Autosport after spending the last four seasons at Chip Ganassi Racing. CGR issued a statement after Ericsson’s move to Andretti Autosport for 2024 was announced:

“Chip Ganassi Racing wishes Marcus Ericsson all the best in his future endeavors. In his time with CGR, the No. 8 team secured four victories, notably the 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Chip Ganassi Racing looks forward to finishing the year strong and remains dedicated to upholding our winning tradition. The team will announce driver updates in due course.”
