Carlin Racing’s Max Chilton says that he is considering his options for the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season if Carlin decides against running a second car full-time.

Racer.com reports that Chilton, who is competing in road and street course events with Carlin including the Indianapolis 500 is looking at Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s third car after the 2020 Indianapolis 500 winning team announced last week that they will run the No.45 Honda full-time in 2022 with primary sponsorship from Hyvee however, Paddock Eye understands that if Chilton does in fact join Rahal it would be full-time as team co-owner Bobby Rahal is not interested in running the car with two drivers.

It is understood that Jack Harvey who will leave Meyer Shank Racing at the end of the season will join Graham Rahal at RLL next season, however, any Rahal deal for Chilton would depend on Takuma Sato leaving the team which would free up the No.30 Honda but it is not yet known what the two-time Indianapolis 500 winner will don next season.

Carlin made their NTT IndyCar Series debut in 2018 with two full-time drivers after Max Chilton and Charlie Kimball joined the team from Chip Ganassi Racing however, in 2020, Carlin announced that they would run just one car due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic with Chilton sharing the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet with Conor Daly.
