INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - PNC Bank has partnered with Chip Ganassi Racing to be the primary sponsor of Scott Dixon in IndyCar.

The Pittsburgh-based bank has been affiliated with Ganassi's teams since 2013 but the full sponsorship package is an increase in funding. Ganassi still resides in his hometown of Pittsburgh, and PNC is his bank.

Dixon is a four-time IndyCar Series champion and will finish his career as one of the best racers in American open-wheel history. His car had patchwork sponsorship last season as Ganassi refused to sell inventory on the cheap for the star driver after Target pulled out of IndyCar.

Target was Ganassi's prime sponsor for almost three decades.

Dixon is coming off a class victory in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, which was the 200th win for the Ganassi organization.
