Chip Ganassi Racing announced today that four-time IndyCar Series champion and Indianapolis 500 winner Scott Dixon will carry Camping World sponsorship in the 101st Indianapolis 500.

Said 2008 Indy winner Dixon: “The Indianapolis 500 is the biggest motor race and the largest spectator sporting event in the world, and I’m very much looking forward to representing a new partner in Camping World this weekend and starting from the pole makes it even more special.
Team owner Chip Ganassi added: After weeks of discussions, we're proud to partner with Camping World, a brand that is the leader in its industry, and introduce them to our team’s IndyCar operation. They have a tremendous sports marketing portfolio, which includes some common ground for us in NASCAR.”
