The Italian is the most successful IndyCar constructor in history, with 21 Indianapolis 500 victories and 300+ event wins through 2021. He’s also the chassis supplier for Haas F1, the first American Formula 1 team in decades. During most of its tenure in IndyCar, Dallara has been the sole chassis supplier, but part of the reason it was made so was that it had become such a dominant force. Dallara began as an engineer at Ferrari and Maserati, then chief designer at Lamborghini. He founded Dallara Automobili in 1972, building cars for F1 and F3. In 1997 the company branched into IndyCar, where it’s been a constant presence since. Eddie Cheever won the marque’s first Indy 500 in 1998. Dallara chassis collected numerous IndyCar victories before being named sole supplier in 2007. It has been the spec chassis for Indy Lights since 2002. In 2012, the company opened its engineering center in Speedway, IN, where it assembles its IndyCar chassis. Dallara has also been a major force in American and international sports car racing.
