Patrick Carpentier (born August 13, 1971) is a retired Canadian race car driver. He is best known for his career in the Champ Car World Series and the IndyCar Series, where he got five wins and 24 podiums, as well as two 3rd place championship finishes in 2002 and 2004. The long-time Champ Car driver switched to the IndyCar Series in 2005, but moved on Grand Am in 2007 and spent a bit more time running his ranch. After a few NASCAR races in 2007, he moved full-time into the series in 2008. Since 2009, he has only had part-time drives, so became a contractor and renovator in Montreal, trading in real estate in Las Vegas, as well as working on his ranch.
