Franchitti Drives Ganassi Car To Sebring Win

SEBRING, Fla. (AP) — Marino Franchitti, Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas teamed to give Chip Ganassi Racing its first victory in the Twelve Hours of Sebring, the oldest endurance sports car race in the country.

Franchitti made a pit stop in the No. 01 Ford/Riley DP just before a caution period Saturday night, allowing him to take the lead under a full-course caution when others pitted with 34 minutes remaining.

Chip Ganassi Racing became the first organization to win the Twelve Hours of Sebring, the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.

The race was the second in the new IMSA-sanctioned TUDOR United SportsCar Championship following the merger of the Grand-Am Rolex Series and American Le Mans series.
