INDYCAR Team Owner Chip Ganassi will highlight the 2013 500 Festival Breakfast at the Brickyard. Ganassi is the owner of Target Chip Ganassi Racing and Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing in the IZOD IndyCar Series. With more than 30 years in racing, his teams have won multiple Indianapolis 500 races including with Emerson Fittipaldi (1989 as co-owner of Patrick Racing), Juan Pablo Montoya (2000), Scott Dixon (2008) and Dario Franchitti (2010, 2012) and championships in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. In 2010, Ganassi became the first owner in history to win the “Triple Crown” of American auto racing by winning the Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500, and Brickyard 400 in the same season and then made it a “Chip Slam” when he added the Rolex 24 At Daytona the following January. Ganassi, who also has teams that compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, started his racing career as a CART driver in 1982 and competed in five Indianapolis 500 races (1982 -1986) with a best finish of 8th in 1983.
