Wednesday, May 4, 2011

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) ? The Grand-Am Series has posted a $25,000 "bounty" on any team that can beat the Chip Ganassi Racing duo of Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas.

The Ganassi drivers are on a six-race winning streak dating back to the final three races of last season. The next chance competitors have is May 14 at Virginia International Raceway.

Pruett and Rojas won the Daytona Prototype championship last season by winning nine of the 12 events on the schedule. Ganassi teams then went 1-2 in the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona, and Pruett and Rojas followed with wins at Homestead and Barber Motorsports Park.
