PNC, described as “one of the largest diversified financial services institutions in the United States,” has been an associate sponsor of Ganassi for more than four years.   

“As a Pittsburgh native, PNC was a trusted brand I grew up with,” said team owner Chip Ganassi at the launch. “I opened up my first account as a teenager and that relationship later expanded to include my business financing.

“Our racing team has enjoyed a formal relationship with PNC since 2013 where we have created opportunities to introduce our love of the sport of racing to PNC and their clients.

"Today’s announcement allows us to expand the fan experience at race tracks across the U.S. and take our two winning brands to a global viewing audience.”

PNC chairman, president and CEO William S. Demchak said: “Expanding our association with Chip Ganassi Racing and champion driver Scott Dixon brings together two organizations specializing in innovation, determination and a commitment to excellence.

“As we debut the No. 9 PNC Bank Indy car this season, the global brand visibility and the unique race track experiences we can offer clients around the country will bring new opportunities for us in an industry that attracts an estimated 54 million fans.”

Dixon is IndyCar’s most successful driver, with four series championships, and 41 career wins which include an Indy 500 victory. His win tally puts him behind only AJ Foyt, Mario Andretti and Michael Andretti in Indy car racing’s all-time standings.
