Chip Ganassi Racing Managing Director Mike Hull has revealed that the team nearly signed Ryan Hunter-Reay to their IndyCar Series programme 18 years ago.

Hunter-Reay was left without a drive in the NTT IndyCar Series for 2022 and was not able to secure a drive for the Indianapolis 500 despite being a former champion

RHR has joined Ganassi as an advisor for IMSA and Hull says that it was due to politics within the sport that they weren’t able to reach a deal with Hunter-Reay.

It would have been a great pairing to have Scott Dixon and Ryan Hunter-Reay together in the one team.
