Ed Jones


At 22, British driver Ed Jones joins Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) after taking INDYCAR Rookie of the Year honors in the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series. He will pilot the No. 10 NTT DATA Honda beginning in 2018, teaming up with four-time INDYCAR Champion, Indianapolis 500 Winner and 41-time race winner Scott Dixon.

The 2017 INDYCAR Rookie of the Year scored a best finish of third at the Indianapolis 500 last season after taking the Indy Lights Championship in 2016 on the strength of two wins and nine podium finishes. In 2015, he made the move across the Atlantic with Carlin Racing and into Indy Lights. Jones served notice of his title aspirations right out of the box, earning the first three race victories of the season - the first rookie driver to do so. He went on to finish third in the title chases. 

Prior to that, Jones earned several karting titles in his native Dubai before making his race car debut in the 2011 European Intersteps Championship. In 2013, Jones became the youngest European F3 Open Champion in history with six wins, 10 podium finishes and four pole positions.

Jones has 17 Indy car starts, producing a best finish of third in the 2017 Indianapolis 500, along with five top-10 finishes (2017-Present).
