Chip Ganassi Racing has tapped Formula 2 standout Marcus Armstrong to compete in the NTT IndyCar Series in 2023, piloting the No. 11 Honda entry in the road and street course events.

Armstrong, who upon joining Chip Ganassi Racing will make his North American professional debut, has raced in the FIA Formula 2 Championship for the last three seasons, where he’s secured four victories and eight podiums.

“I’m ecstatic to be a part of the IndyCar Series, especially with Chip Ganassi Racing because it is such an iconic and successful team. I have an extraordinary opportunity in front of me to learn from people that have been performing at the absolute highest level in this sport,” said Armstrong. “As a Kiwi, I’ve always watched Scott Dixon succeed in the championship with this team, so on a personal level, this is quite special for me. I am a hard worker that looks to improve every single day. With the knowledge and personnel that this team has, I’m very excited to take on this new challenge.”

“Marcus driving the No. 11 car for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2023 is exciting. As a 22-year-old, what is in common to others who have climbed into INDYCAR with CGR is that at that age he already knows how to win,” said Mike Hull, Managing Director of Chip Ganassi Racing. “That’s been repeatedly proven at the highest global level. Besides talent, the intangible that he brings creates measurement through opportunity.”

A native of Christchurch, New Zealand, Armstrong launched his racing career by driving go-karts at 10 years old. Winning five national championships in go-karting, the driver made the jump to Formula 4 in 2017, where get captured the Italian Formula 4 championship.

In 2018 and 2019, Armstrong competed in Formula 3, where he secured a total of four victories, four pole positions, and 16 podium finishes.

The 22-year-old driver is scheduled to make his Chip Ganassi Racing debut on the Streets of St. Petersburg on March 5, becoming the first driver in team history to pilot an entry carrying the No. 11.

Chip Ganassi Racing will share an update on the driver of the No. 11 Honda entry for the oval races on the NTT IndyCar Series schedule, at a later date.
