CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Chip Ganassi is expanding into Global Rally Cross this season with a two-car team that includes 13-time X Games medalist Brian Deegan.
It will be the fourth major American motorsports series for the Ganassi organization. The team owner fields cars in IndyCar, NASCAR and the United SportsCar Championship, and has wins in every major American event from the Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500 and Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Now he's branching out into GRC with Deegan and dirt racing champion Steve Arpin. Deegan will compete in seven races in the No. 38 RockStar Energy Drink Ford Fiesta ST. Arpin will run all 12 in the No. 00 ENEOS Ford Fiesta ST.
Both drivers will compete in the X Games 22 in June.
