IRL Champion

Dressed for success


Dario Franchitti – The 2009 IRL Champion

After walking away from a season of Nascar racing, the Scottish driver switched back to Indy car racing with Chip Ganassi’s team. Five wins and five poles during the season gave Ashley’s Ace his second championship in three years.

Franchitti was victorious in Long Beach, Iowa, Toronto, Sonoma and Homestead where he “outfoxed” his teammate Scott Dixon and Penske pilot Ryan Briscoe on fuel strategy to grab victory in the race and the championship.

His previous career high point was winning the 2007 Indy 500 and the IRL championship. For more information on his career we recommend a visit to:
