FORD GTs ARE READY FOR LONG BEACH STREET CIRCUIT RACE

MOORESVILLE, NC, April 13, 2018 When it comes to street racing there’s no place better than Long Beach, California. The narrow city streets, tight curves and close door to door racing offers a radically different race than any other on the IMSA road race schedule.

“Anything can happen at Long Beach,” Ryan Briscoe, co-driver of the No. 67 said. “Strategy is just as important as running clean. That’s something we can count on. Our crew chief has always thought out all of our options, so it’s up to us to race smart and bring it home in one piece.”

The Ford Chip Ganassi Racing (FCGR) teams will strap into the Ford GTs for the third IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship race of the season on Saturday. Looking for the teams second podium finish at Long Beach in two years, co-drivers Joey Hand and Dirk Müller will pilot the No. 66, while FCGR teammates and points leaders Briscoe and Richard Westbrook in the No. 67 Ford GT will line up for practice and qualifying on Friday.

Don’t miss a minute of the action, because no one can predict what will happen in this no holds bar 100-minute sprint race in downtown Long Beach.
