Two-time INDYCAR Champion Palou to Race Cadillac V-Series.R at Daytona

Palou joins Bourdais, Dixon and van der Zande for 24-hour endurance event


INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 10, 2024) – Chip Ganassi Racing announced today that Alex Palou, the reigning NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion, will return to race at the Rolex 24 At Daytona in the No. 01 Cadillac V-Series.R.

Palou will round out a familiar four-man team consisting of Sebastien Bourdais, Scott Dixon and Renger van der Zande, who raced together as a group previously in the No. 01 Cadillac at the 24 Hours At Daytona in 2022.

“I’m very excited to return to Daytona after competing with the team in the DPi era in 2022. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new Hybrid and it will be a great way to start the year early with such a great team and with such great teammates,” said Palou. “I’ve had the privilege of racing with Scott, Sebastien and Renger and I’m sure with all the preparation and knowledge that the team has, we’ll be able to fight for a win and maybe bring home some new watches at the end of January.”

The Barcelona, Spain, native himself recorded the fastest lap time of any driver in the field (1:33.724/136.742 mph) during the 2022 endurance event.
