Juan Pablo Montoya – 15 wins
"I have won a number of races in my career that I think could be considered pretty cool but winning all those races with Chip has been the ultimate. I think it is because I consider him such a good friend and we have won so many big races together and in so many different series. We have won the Long Beach Grand Prix in CART, the Indy 500 in the IRL, the Rolex 24 at Daytona in Grand-Am and also in NASCAR Cup and Nationwide. It's the reason that I am with Chip again - because I know he wants to win as much as I do and will do whatever it takes."

Alex Zanardi – 15 wins
"I’m really happy to congratulate my friends at the team for this fantastic achievement and let me say I’m proud as well, because I know my contribution to obtain this result was a two digit number. But this doesn’t tell you why the above result was gained. Sure, drivers are important in the equation and Chip would tell you that he’s always been lucky to have the right guys behind the wheel, but it’s not about this. I’m absolutely sure the credit goes to Chip himself and the people he has chosen to do the job. They’ve been able to create a group, where everyone is capable to recognize their responsibility for every defeat, but at the same way their hunger, passion and determination, gets the right award with every success of the team because they really feel part of it. It’s a little secret, but despite the fact I’ve been part of many organizations in my racing career, Chip’s team is the only place where I’ve seen the right application for it and I feel really lucky it happened to me once, especially in that fantastic way. Chip, for all the times you shouted at me over the radio ‘you are the man!’ let me tell you the same thing. At times I thought you were just lucky. But it’s not true, you are a hard worker, a passionate leader, and if sometime one of your duties is to look a little mean, you’re ‘bloody’ smart and that’s why I’m ‘bloody’ proud that along the fantastic way of the team you’ve put together, I was chosen to be part of this great success. Way to go!"

Scott Dixon – 15 wins
"Having been a part of this team for almost seven years now, you understand exactly what it takes to win the big races and championships at the highest levels of racing. I think the tremendous amount of success the organization has seen is a direct result of the team Chip has assembled over the years. The people are the ones that truly make a difference. When you combine those kinds of people with an owner like Chip who gives you all the tools to be successful, you get these kinds of fantastic results."

Jimmy Vasser – 9 wins
"This is a great achievement for a great organization. I am very happy for Chip and everyone involved with Target Chip Ganassi Racing. I will always be proud to have been a part of the team and helped to contribute to their success."
