LAS VEGAS – Chip Ganassi is making yet another manufacturer switch, taking his sports car program to Ford to run the new EcoBoost engine package next year.
Ganassi last month moved from Honda to Chevrolet in the IndyCar Series.
Chip Ganassi Racing is the most successful team in Daytona Prototype history and won its seventh DP team championship this season. It has used BMW engines the last four seasons.
Driver Scott Pruett started with Ford in 1985 and became a factory driver the next season. Pruett won four IMSA and SCCA Trans-Am championships in three years before moving to IndyCar racing.
Both of Pruett's IndyCar wins came with Ford, and his one season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was with Ford.
