"Sebring is a race that's been good to me in the past and I hope we can add to Chip Ganassi's haul of big race victories by winning the 12hr next weekend and I know that would make Scott Borchetta and Big Machine Records happy too!", said Franchitti.

"I'm paired with arguably the most successful partnership in the history of Daytona Prototypes, so I'm very excited to work with Scott and Memo. It's a shame I didn't get to run at the test, but hopefully I can make the most of the track time we have before the race".
