Chip Ganassi Racing head into what is their 30th season in the NTT IndyCar Series season full of confidence for a strong 2020 season.
The team have expanded from a two to a three car full time programme following the arrival over the off season of NTT IndyCar Series sophomore Marcus Ericsson who will drive the No.8 Huski Chocolate Honda.
The team have retained the highly rated Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda following a strong 2019 debut season in the series.
Ganassi also have five time series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda. The Iceman has been tipped by IndyCar to score his sixth title this year.
Having an extra car brings with it greater scope for further success in 20w0 for Chip Ganassi Racing as the team have extra technical data they use to help move them forward.
Marcus Ericsson has also disquinshed himself as great at setting up a car as proven when he scored his podium last year in Detroit.
Speaking ahead of the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg, team owner Chip Ganassi said:
It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years. I’ve been lucky to have great people, great partners and great drivers work with me in that time. I always tell people I had a fossil fuel-fired youth having raced karts, motorcycles, Indy cars and sports cars. I could have never in my wildest dreams imagined owning a race team back then and it’s incredible to see where it is now. I’m not going anywhere, and I think we have a lot of wins and championships left in us. I can’t wait for the 2020 season to open for us in St. Petersburg and to see what it brings. We always begin with the same two goals in mind for each season: win the Indianapolis 500 and win the NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship.
