Chip Ganassi Racing has secured the coup of bringing DHL into the team on a multi-year deal. The logistics company will be the primary sponsor on Alex Palou’s number 10 machine for the 2024 NTT IndyCar season. His former primary sponsor American Legion has moved over to the number 8 machine of Linus Lundqvist for next year.

DHL has been in the series for over a decade already. They were on the car when Ryan Hunter-Reay won his championship in 2012, and it was the case when the driver from the United States won the Indianapolis 500 two years later.

Most recently they were the primary sponsor on Romain Grosjean’s Andretti Autosport machine and Jamie Chadwick’s car in Indy NXT. An association with the Andretti team of over a decade has come to an end.

“I am extremely proud to welcome DHL to the Chip Ganassi Racing family,” said Chip Ganassi.

“It is an honor to partner with an organization 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 on board. The road ahead holds great promise and potential, and I can’t wait to get started.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Chip Ganassi Racing, an organization that has a rich history of success, deeply rooted in principles shared by DHL, such as a commitment to supporting the communities we call home, and the relentless pursuit of excellence by investing in our people who embody speed, passion, and dedication,” said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express Americas and Head of Global Sponsorships.

“As we sponsor this winning motorsports team with Alex Palou behind the wheel, we look forward to many winning moments both on and off the track in the months and years to come.”

“It’s super exciting to announce our new partnership with DHL, a global leader in logistics. Representing such a successful and widely recognized brand is a true honor,” said Alex Palou.

“Their iconic yellow and red colors not only stand out, but they also remind me of my native Spain’s colors. As our team looks back at our remarkable success last year, we are eager to carry that momentum forward and aim for a third title with the support of DHL. I am especially thrilled to hit the ground running alongside the dedicated men and women of our 10-car crew in 2024.”
