Chip Ganassi Racing has officially confirmed Scott Dixon as the third driver for its Cadillac DPi.V.R entry in this month’s Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The six-time and defending NTT IndyCar Series champion joins full-season drivers Kevin Magnussen and Renger van der Zande for the team’s DPi debut. 

Dixon and van der Zande were part of the winning lineup in last year’s Rolex 24, at the wheel of a Wayne Taylor Racing-run Cadillac DPi. 

The Kiwi, a four-time winner in the Florida endurance classic, is understood to be on board for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and Motul Petit Le Mans as well. 

Dixon was initially slated to contest the Michelin Endurance Cup races with Meyer Shank Racing prior to the CGR Cadillac deal materializing. 

Sportscar365 understands that fellow Ganassi IndyCar driver Marcus Ericsson could complete the lineup for the Florida endurance classic.

The ex-Formula 1 driver is scheduled to test alongside Dixon, van der Zande and Magnussen at Sebring International Raceway next week.

CGR has also revealed the livery for its No. 01 Cadillac, which will be mostly white with red and silver accents.
