Indianapolis provided the setting for the first 500 Miles victory
for Tony Kanaan, the veteran Brazilian who looked like he was
never going to get lucky in the most prestigious Izod IndyCar
race of all. It was an important and popular victory, and was
equalled only by the milestone achieved by Dallara at the
Barber Motorsports Park, where the reigning champion, Ryan
Hunter-Reay, took the Italian constructor’s car to its 200th win
in the category. Dallara has been building chassis for the
American championship since ‘97.
It’s like Dallara and IndyCar
have been have always been together»

Andrea Toso, head of research and development at the factory.
This is a very long time in the context of the motor racing
world. And it represents a solid and fortunate partnership that
goes beyond being simply a commercial relationship.
Partnerships are usually measured in terms of profits, but this is
more than just business»
