Chip Ganassi Racing has more decisions to make about its next NTT IndyCar Series line-up than any of its rivals. Across its four cars and the five drivers signed to its open-wheel roster, only Scott Dixon and the No. 9 Honda are sorted for the future.

Dixon will continue his pursuit of additional championships to add to the six he’s earned so far, but his supporting cast — and the driver who might carry the team into the future whenever the 43-year-old retires — have yet to be identified for 2024 and beyond.

It’s unclear who will join the Kiwi on those title pursuits as the No. 8 driven by Marcus Ericsson, No. 10 piloted by Alex Palou, and the No 11 Ganassi Honda shared by Marcus Armstrong and Takuma Sato could have new occupants after the season concludes in six weeks’ time. Figuring out who will steer the rest of its fleet has been a time-consuming process for Ganassi and his managing director Mike Hull.
