Ganassi adds another Kiwi in Armstrong to IndyCar lineup


AP Auto Racing Writer

Chip Ganassi Racing has signed New Zealand driver Marcus Armstrong to join its IndyCar lineup next season. Armstrong spent the last three seasons in Formula One feeder series F2 and will drive the No. 11 for Ganassi. The No. 11 is the No. 48 that Jimmie Johnson drove the last two seasons but Chip Ganassi is changing it to run the sequential numbers 8, 9, 10 and 11 in IndyCar. Armstrong in this move will be teammates with six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon. That was his childhood hero. He’s a former Ferrari development driver and was once teammates with Christian Lundgaard and roommates with Callum Illot.
