Land of the free, home of the brave, and birthplace to some of the most legendary racing organizations the world has ever seen. These are the 10 greatest American racing teams.
North American Racing Team
The North American Racing Team, or NART for short, was used by Ferrari to aid their growing presence in the American market from the late ‘50s onward. In addition to gaining racing experience at notable endurance races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 12 Hours of Sebring, NART also saw wins in their Ferrari 250 GTOs at Daytona and were even able to clinch the Formula One championship in 1964.
Wood Brothers Racing
In NASCAR today, there are very few teams racing that have evolved with and molded the sport like the Wood Brothers Racing team has. Reader mrbwa1 explains why that’s true.
Dan Gurney/All American Racers
After Carroll Shelby and Dan Gurney launched the team in 1964, the All American Racers had quickly become notable racers throughout F1, United States Auto Club racing, Champ Car, IMSA GT and even Trans-Am. They even built the 2012 Deltawing! Oh, and Gurney was the only American ever to win an F1 race in an American car, at the superfast Spa in 1967. Mad props.
John Force Racing
If you’re going to mention NHRA drag racing stats and key players, you can’t go without bringing up the John Force Racing team. After being around for over 30 years and raking in 18 championship wins, they have become a huge contender in NHRA Funny Car racing. Impressive to say the least.
