Ford at SebringChip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) won the 12 Hours of Sebring last Saturday, marking the team’s first Sebring win and the first victory for the all-new Ford EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 racing engine.

This year, the historic Sebring endurance race was the second stop in the Tudor United Sports Car Championship (Tudor USCC), a new series that combines two competing sports car series — the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) — into a single U.S. sports car championship.

Ganassi is a seven-time reigning champion of the old Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and five-time winners of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, but the team had never competed previously in the 12 Hours of Sebring, which was part of the competing ALMS. With the Sebring victory, Ganassi becomes the only team to have won the 12 Hours of Sebring, Rolex 24 at Daytona, Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500.
