IndyCar: Chip Ganassi bags multi-year DHL primary partnership

Logistics company switches from Andretti Autosport to Alex Palou’s entry from next season.

IndyCar’s Chip Ganassi Racing have secured DHL as the primary partner of Alex Palou’s entry from next season.

Confirmed:

  • DHL signs multi-year deal with Chip Ganassi Racing
  • Logistics company leaves Andretti Autosport after more than a decade

Context:

Considering his remarkable run in IndyCar, it’s interesting that this will be Alex Palou’s third primary partner in the space of three years. NTT Data exited at the end of the 2022 season, in anticipation that its long-time partner would join it at Arrow McLaren, but the Spaniard reneged on his agreement with chief executive Zak Brown and remained with Chip Ganassi. American Legion, Palou’s primary sponsor in 2023, will remain with Chip Ganassi next season but switches to the entry driven by Linus Lundqvist.

Comment:

Team owner Chip Ganassi said: “I am extremely proud to welcome DHL to the Chip Ganassi Racing family. It is an honour to partner with an organisation that shares our fundamental values of teamwork, growth, responsibility and the pursuit of excellence.

“Together, we are committed to embodying those values both on and off the racetrack. I am looking forward to Alex and the No 10 team defending their 2023 title with DHL onboard. The road ahead holds great promise and potential, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Coming next:

Palou will start his title defence with new partner DHL on board at the Grand Prix of St Petersburg on 10th March.
