Women In Motorsports Powered by PNC Bank with Chip Ganassi Racing Opens Application Window for 2024 Intern ClassINDYCAR
INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 1, 2023) – Chip Ganassi Racing and PNC Bank today announced the open application window for the 2024 Women in Motorsports internship program. Building on the success of the CGR intern program throughout the 2022 and 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES, the team is excited to expand women representation in the 2024 intern class.
Women In Motorsports was launched as part of PNC’s national commitment to drive awareness and support for accelerating women’s financial equality. It was established with a vision of accelerating career pathways and mentorship opportunities for students interested in motorsports.
College students from around the United States are encouraged to apply no later than Sept. 30, 2023. To learn more and apply for the fully-funded program, please visit chipganassiracing.com/wim2024.
Chip Ganassi Racing has already leveraged the talent introduced by the program, bringing former intern Rebecca Hutton onboard full-time within the team's engineering division.
"The Women In Motorsports initiative has given me the opportunity to transition from intern to full time within one year,” said Hutton. “Angela Ashmore was my mentor during the internship and she continues to be a big influence on me now. You can already see the influence this initiative has made not only at Chip Ganassi Racing, but within the paddock. It's all thanks to programs like Women In Motorsports powered by PNC Bank and it continues to accelerate the change."
Interns will be fully integrated into CGR’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES teams, including six-time champion Scott Dixon and the No. 9 PNC Bank crew.
With projects ranging from engine builds and electronic design in the team’s Indianapolis headquarters, to race day duties and performance modifications at tracks across the country, the internship class will be able to use this opportunity as a launchpad toward a career in motorsports.
