The 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season saw the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team return to form following several tricky seasons for the Zionsville-based team.

In 2023, the team had Graham Rahal, Christian Lundgaard, and Jack Harvey to start the season, it was a tough season for Harvey who left the team in August, with Conor Daly replacing the Englishman for some races in the No.30 Honda. Speaking at the time, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team co-owner Bobby Rahal said:

“First, I would like to thank Jack Harvey for all of his efforts on behalf of RLL for the last year and a half. He committed fully to the team but for whatever reason, we weren’t able to achieve the results that he or the team deserves and we wish him well in the future. We will use the final three races of the season to gauge other racing talent. I’m very pleased that Conor has agreed to join us in St. Louis. He’s been strong there and I feel that he can bring value to the team while also providing us with a strong effort. I look forward to having him with us.

It was a disappointing month of May for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with Graham Rahal failing to qualify for the Greatest Spectacle In Racing, however, Rahal would make the start of the race with Cusick Motorsports when he filled in for the injured Stefan Wilson. While Graham failed to qualify for the race, the team ran an extra car for English driver, Katherine Legge who returned to the series after over a decade away driving the No.44 Hendrickson Honda.

Following several internal changes to the team, the 2023 season turned around for RLL and in July, Christian Lundgaard scored his debut NTT INDYCAR SERIES victory at the Honda Indy Toronto.

At the Gallagher Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course in August, Graham Rahal started the race from pole position and came home in second place just behind winner Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda.

Christian Lundgaard had a great season for the team scoring two NTT P1 Awards and the victory in Toronto finishing the year in eighth place on 390 points.

For 2024, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing will continue with three cars full-time with Graham Rahal and Christian Lundgaard joined at the team by Pietro Fittipaldi.
