Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is co-owned by three-time IndyCar Champion and 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal, former Late Show host David Letterman, and Mi-Jack co-owner Mike Lanigan and is based in Hilliard, Ohio and Brownsburg, Indiana.
Founded in 1992 when then two-time Indy car champion Bobby Rahal started his own team with Carl Hogan, Rahal Hogan Racing got off to a celebrated start when Rahal won his third championship in the team’s first season of competition. 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 from pole. 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.
Prior to the start of the 30th season of competition in 2021, the team had compiled 54 victories (29-IndyCar, 22-ALMS/IMSA), 65 poles (33-IndyCar, 28-ALMS/IMSA), and three series championships (1992-IndyCar, 2010 and 2011-ALMS), as well as claiming an Indianapolis 500 victory in 2004 and 2020.
