Ganassi Partners with Dinan-BMW
Three-time Grand-Am Rolex Sports Cars Series champions Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates announced Saturday that it has partnered with Dinan-BMW as the new manufacturer of its 2010 Daytona Prototype, and its longtime partner TELMEX will once again return as the primary sponsor of the No. 01 with co-drivers Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas.
In addition, the three-time Rolex 24 At Daytona winners (2006, 2007, 2008) will again run a two-car effort for the 49th running of the prestigious Rolex 24 At Daytona, featuring eight drivers representing some of the best talent the motor racing world has to offer.
Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas will unite with IZOD IndyCar driver Justin Wilson and American Le Mans Series driver Marino Franchitti to form the lineup in the No. 01 TELMEX/Target Dinan-BMW Riley, while Team Target IndyCar pilots Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti will join Team Target NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Juan Pablo Montoya and Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates teammate Jamie McMurray in the No. 02 Target/TELMEX Dinan-BMW Riley.
“Dinan is excited about the 2010 season and our association with Ganassi and BMW,” Steve Dinan said. “We have always felt the BMW engine is the best suited for the series. It’s a great opportunity for Dinan to partner with a three-time series champion capable of winning this year’s championship.”No Comment
