Chip Ganassi Racing Teams is launching a new web-based video series, Ganassi Unplugged, that puts team owner Chip Ganassi's opinions and views on display every week in a series of short video clips. The weekly series debuts today, at 3:00 p.m. EDT on "GanassiTV," the team's YouTube channel, and runs until the opening of the 2014 racing season with the Rolex 24 at Daytona next January.
aims to bring out the personality of the multi-series team owner through unscripted, bite-sized clips, focusing on a different subject each week. Ganassi has over 30 years of experience in motorsports and that alone gives him the credibility to voice his opinions. As a former driver, a successful team owner and avid student of the sport, Chip Ganassi is a distinguished business man within the industry and Ganassi Unplugged
will give individuals all over the world a chance to see and hear what he thinks. Check out the following preview:
One of the most successful team owners in all of auto racing and listed as one of the most influential people in the auto industry by Complex Magazine, Ganassi's teams have netted 15 championships and over 150 victories, including four Indianapolis 500s, a Daytona 500, a Brickyard 400 and five Rolex 24 at Daytonas. In 2010, he accomplished a feat that before or since has never happened in the history of auto racing when his teams won the Daytona 500, the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona all in a 12-month span.
His teams include three cars in the IZOD IndyCar Series, two in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and one Daytona Prototype in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series.
“Ganassi Unplugged is an innovative approach to digital content within the motorsports industry," said Steve Lauletta, president, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams. " It is hard to find any other team owners, especially as involved as Chip, sharing their passion and personal views of the sport with the public. It's fun, it's real and it's refreshing not only for fans, but anyone that has even a little interest in the racing or auto industries. I think everyone will enjoy Ganassi Unplugged.”
