NTT Data has signed a multi-year extension with Chip Ganassi Racing. The partnership will be split between Scott Dixon, Jimmie Johnson, Tony Kanaan, and Alex Palou in 2021.

NTT Data has been working with Chip Ganassi Racing for a long-time. This company will serve as the primary sponsor for the No. 10 NTT Data Honda entry for several races during the 2021 season.

Palou, the 23-year-old driver, replaces Felix Rosenqvist, who departed the team in October. Rosenqvist has been hired by Arrow McLaren SP as the replacement for Oliver Askew.

“This has been a tremendous partnership from a sponsorship perspective and from a technological standpoint over the years,” NTT DATA Services Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer David Croxville said. “Building and cultivating relationships with our clients is the foundation of our business. The partnership with a championship-winning organization that features unparalleled access to an incredibly talented group of drivers allows us to create unforgettable experiences with and for our clients and partners.”

The partnership began with NTT Data during the 2013 IndyCar season. At the time, the deal was with Ryan Briscoe’s No. 8 entry, beginning at the Indianapolis 500.

This past season, Palou was the runner-up for the Rookie of the Year Award. He was beat out for the award by Ed Carpenter Racing driver Rinus VeeKay.

“NTT DATA has been and will continue to be a big part of who our company is, and what we represent as an organization,” team owner Chip Ganassi said. “Their involvement with our racing programs, from both a technology and business standpoint, has enabled us to deliver results on the track with multiple championships and race wins over the past eight years. Key relationships like this give us the ability to continue to push forward and achieve our goals.”
