"Along with Monster Energy, winning races, and competing at the highest level, it's what we are all about". I like this team, and I have so much history. Ganassi's forward-thinking approach is why I have made a decision to commit all my years of Monster Energy Cup experience to CGR. "He is a former NASCAR Cup Series champion and Daytona 500 victor and I believe still has a burning desire to win races and compete for a championship. Let's win, let's have fun!"
