Bruce McLaren founded McLaren in 1963 and the team raced at Indianapolis from 1970 to 1982, winning on three occasions. Mark Donohue piloting the McLaren M16B to victory in 1972, and Johnny Rutherford scored two victories in 1974 and 1976.

McLaren has been involved in all forms of motorsport including Formula 1, Can Am and Indy. In recent years, they were battling for the lead in the 2010 Formula 1 World Championships. In May of 2017, McLaren returned to Indianapolis after a 38-year hiatus from Works competition at that track.

The McLaren M24B was built in 1978 and used during the 1978 and 1979 season. The 1979 CART season was marred by legal difficulties resulting from the USAC/CART split. Nevertheless, Rutherford and the M24B finished 4th in the Indy Car standings.
