McLaren Racing has a rich history in the INDYCAR SERIES, winning three Indianapolis 500s in 1972, 1974 and 1976. The team returned to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2017, with Fernando Alonso, to race in the Indianapolis 500 in a joint effort with Andretti Autosport.

In 2020, McLaren Racing joined forces with Arrow Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports, taking majority ownership of the team in 2021. In 2023, Arrow McLaren completed its first season with a three-car lineup, collecting 10 podium finishes and two poles.

Throughout McLaren Racing’s history racing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, the team has totalled 23 victories in 220+ starts and a best finish of second in the championship.

This year we’ll race with Pato O’Ward in the No. 5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet, Théo Pourchaire in the No. 6 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet and Alexander Rossi in the No. 7 VELO Arrow McLaren Chevrolet.

During the Indianapolis 500, Arrow McLaren will welcome Callum Ilott in the No. 6 NTT DATA Chevrolet and Kyle Larson in the No. 17 HendrickCars.com Arrow McLaren Chevrolet.

At the heart of Arrow McLaren is a shared ambition: to race and to win – for its people, its partners, its fans and the sport.

At Arrow McLaren, we’re focused on building a high-performing team that competes for wins, poles and the championship. We’re always looking for any way we can improve our race cars each and every race weekend. Ours partners at Expand Machinery help give us the tools and machinery we need to push forward and fight to be at the top of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
