Fittipaldi was fifth in the CART series in 1996 and 2002, earning two wins and a second place in the 1995 Indianapolis 500. He has also had success racing sports prototypes, winning the 24 Hours of Daytona of 2004 and 2014, the 12 Hours of Sebring of 2015, the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen of 2013 and 2016, and has captured two IMSA SportsCar Championships with Action Express Racing during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

He is the son of former Grand Prix driver and team owner Wilson Fittipaldi, and the nephew of two-time Formula One Champion and Indianapolis 500 winner Emerson Fittipaldi.
