Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is based in Hilliard, Ohio and Brownsburg, Indiana and is co-owned by three-time IndyCar Champion and 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal, Mi-Jack co-owner Mike Lanigan and CBS LATE SHOW host David Letterman. The team has been competing for over two decades, compiling 30 victories (20-IndyCar, 10-ALMS), 42 poles (29-IndyCar, 13-ALMS) and three series championships (1992-IndyCar, 2010 and 2011-ALMS), as well as claiming an Indianapolis 500 victory in 2004 with Buddy Rice. In 2009, the team joined BMW of North America to campaign the new BMW M3 in the American Le Mans Series, and in 2010 and 2011 won both the Manufacturer and Team Championships in the GT category.
Founded in 1992 when three-time Indy car champion Bobby Rahal started his own team with Carl Hogan, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is one of racing’s most celebrated organizations. Television icon David Letterman joined the team as an owner in 1996, with the team officially becoming Rahal Letterman Racing in 2004 — the same year that the team won the Indianapolis 500. Mi-Jack co-owner Mike Lanigan joined the team as a co-owner in 2010, and the team name changed again to reflect the new relationship. The team has won races in CART/Champ Car, the IndyCar Series, the Indy Racing League, Indy Lights and the American Le Mans Series.
