Chilton will complete a 14-race schedule in 2021, adding the Indy 500 to the 13 road and street course races on the IndyCar schedule this year.
Another driver who will pilot the No. 59 car in the remaining oval races will be announced in due course, as Max will prioritise the Road and Street courses alongside the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500.

In 2015, Chilton ran a season of Indy Lights with Carlin, scoring a victory at Iowa Speedway before he graduated to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2016.
