Cars, computers, and cell phones were taken from the offices and home of DC Solar 's CEO Jeff Carpoff.

DC Solar was announced as a backer for Chastain's effort.[39] Chastain had previously met the CEO of DC Solar at Auto Club Speedway in 2018, and plans materialized from there " CEO of DC Solar , a Chip Ganassi Racing sponsor , has home raided by FBI ". Yahoo Sports. Retrieved January 5, 2019.

Carpoff has been an advocate for Ross Chastain, who drove three races in a DC Solar-sponsored car in the Xfinity Series in 2018. Chastain won one of those races and earned himself a full-time ride with Ganassi’s Xfinity Series team in 2019.

DC Solar was a primary sponsor for 16 Cup Series races for Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray in 2018 and 10 Xfinity Series races for CGR’s No. 42 car. The team said it was monitoring the situation regarding the raid.

Both Ganassi and DC Solar were at the center of lawsuit earlier in 2018. Driver Brennan Poole alleged that Ganassi and management company Spire conspired to move DC Solar from his Xfinity Series car to Kyle Larson’s Cup Series car. Poole drove for CGR in the Xfinity Series and brought the company to the team.

“CGR, directly, and in secret actions and communications with Spire, began actively pursuing and developing a relationship with DC Solar with the ultimate goal of terminating the association between Brennan Poole and DC Solar and facilitating the diversion of DC Solar’s sponsorship from Brennan Poole to CGR,” the lawsuit said.

Poole parted ways with the team after the 2017 season. CGR responded to the suit in part by saying Poole never got a win with the team “despite the advantages of the best equipment in the garage.”
