List of All U.S.
Open-wheel Race Champions
Note:
In 1909 the American Automobile Association (AAA) established
the national driving championship and became the first sanctioning
body for auto racing in the United States.

In 1956, the United States Auto Club (USAC) was founded to take
over sanctioning from the AAA which ceased sanctioning auto
racing in the general outrage over motor racing safety.

USAC controlled the championship until 1979 when a group of
disenchanted race team owners started their own series called
Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART).

Tony George, president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,
started the Indy Racing League (IRL) in 1996 in direct competion
with CART. As the IRL, or Indycar, slowly grew, CART collapsed
finally going bankrupt in 2003.

Another group of team owners purchased CART and started a new
race series called Champcar to compete against the IRL.  They too
went bankrupt before the 2008 season and most of those race
teams then joined the IRL, which is now called IndyCar.
