Chip Ganassi Makes History With McMurray, Franchitti


Congratualtions are in order for one Chip Ganassi.

The legendary race team owner became the first man in history to win both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 as a car owner in the same year. NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray won the Daytona 500 in February, while IZOD Indycar driver Dario Franchitti won the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

Ganassi has been one of the best car owners in auto racing for a very long time, with multiple wins in the Indianapolis 500 and the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and as of this year, a Daytona 500 win. This piece of history just further solidifies Chip’s position as one of the best owners in racing.

Congratulations Chip Ganassi! You’ve earned this.
