When Dallara became the official sole chassis supplier of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2012, the group opened Dallara USA: an engineering center in Speedway, Indiana, two steps away from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Since then, the US headquarters has grown its motorsport activities, becoming the sole chassis supplier for the Indy NXT Series and in 2016, began a joint venture with Cadillac to design and manufacture an LMP2 car, which then became the Cadillac DPi that raced in the IMSA Series. After the DPi class discontinued, 2023 brought the release of the GTP class, where Dallara manufactures the Cadillac and BMW LMDh. Dallara also designed the NextGen-7 car for the NASCAR CUP SERIES. Along with the company's motorsport activities, Dallara has diversified its motorsport activities to also include the United States aerospace and defense industries.
Dallara USA is at the center of the North American motorsport and technology industry. In deciding to base its operations in Speedway Dallara further enhanced Indiana’s reputation as the world’s center of motorsport.
Dallara is very proud to have a strong strategic partnership with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, who has helped play a large role in the expansion of Dallara in Indiana.
Dallara is also a member of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Indy Chamber. This allows the company to take part in Indiana INTERNnet, an initiative managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. This program offers an easy connection between local company internships and high schools, colleges and universities in the State of Indiana. The membership program also gives Dallara the opportunity to access different seminars and training sessions.
Dallara USA has consolidated a partnership with the School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
