The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Chip Ganassi Racing page on 4 July 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Chip Ganassi Racing With Felix Sabates, Inc., Doing business as Chip Ganassi Racing Teams or simply Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR), is a professional auto racing organization with teams competing in the IndyCar Series, NASCAR Monster Energy Cup and Xfinity Series, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, and the FIA World Endurance Championship. It was founded in 1990 by businessman and former race driver Chip Ganassi, from the assets of Patrick Racing to compete in the CART IndyCar World Series.

In 2001, Ganassi bought a majority stake in Sabates' Team SABCO NASCAR team, which had operated since 1989, marking his entry into that championship and inheriting that teams history, while later moving his CART team to the rival Indy Racing League (now IndyCar Series) and competing in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. In 2009, Ganassi partnered with Dale Earnhardt, Inc. owner Teresa Earnhardt to merge their NASCAR operations into Ganassi's shop and run independently as Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates. The NASCAR team dropped the Earnhardt name in 2014, and Ganassi revealed that Teresa was never truly involved with the team. Rob Kauffman, chairman of the Race Team Alliance, purchased a stake in the team in 2015.

Together, they have won 10 Open Wheel titles (4 in CART, 6 in IndyCar), 5 Grand-Am Road Racing championships, and wins in the Indianapolis 500 (Four times), Daytona 500, Brickyard 400, 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring and a 24 Hours of Le Mans class win. Their class victory in the 2018 24 Hours of Daytona marked their 200th win in all of professional motorsports.
