Ganassi shuts down sponsor-less Franchitti team
CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP) - Co-owner Chip Ganassi has shut down Dario Franchitti's race team because of a lack of sponsorship.
The 2007 Indy 500 winner and IRL Series champion has struggled in his first NASCAR season driving Ganassi's No. 40 Dodge.
Longtime sponsor Coors Light left at the end of last season, and Ganassi was unable to secure funding for Franchitti.
Franchitti ranks 41st in the points standings.
"If I keep going I run the risk of dragging the other two teams down. I don't want to do that," Ganassi told the Associated Press. "There's no money. It makes no sense to be running this out of my pocket. I had to put a stop to it."
i am sure all the single drivers are upset that ashley judd wont be hanging around anymore :chuckle:
