With about a month and a half to go before the season begins, the full-time driver lineup for the 2023 IndyCar campaign is officially set.

An entertaining silly season for the 2023 IndyCar season is officially in the books following three announcements from earlier this week, announcements which have solidified the driver lineup for the upcoming 17-race campaign.

There are 27 cars set to run full-time throughout the season, and 26 have full-time drivers. The lone shared entry is the No. 11 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, which is set to be driven by rookie Marcus Armstrong in the road and street course races and by two-time Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato in the oval races, including the Indy 500.

In addition to Chip Ganassi Racing’s confirmation of Sato, two other confirmations were made this week. Rookie Agustin Canapino is set to join Juncos Hollinger Racing in their new second entry, the No. 78 Chevrolet, while rookie Sting Ray Robb is set to be bumped up from Indy Lights to replace Sato at Dale Coyne Racing with Rick Ware Racing behind the wheel of the No. 51 Honda.

Let’s have a look at the entire full-time lineup for the 2023 IndyCar season.
