With the announcement of the formation of Trackhouse Racing in October last year, Justin Marks promised it to be a forced to be reckoned with and this became even more clear after it was announced that Trackhouse Racing bought in Chip Ganassi Racing.
CEO of Chip Ganassi Racing, Chip Ganassi will temporarily be pulling out of the NASCAR Racing scene. Chip Ganassi Racing also owns an IndyCar team, IMSA sportscar team and a Formula E team.
Justin Marks was reported to call Ganassi out of the blue and make the negotiations on call. “It was an offer that I could not simply refuse and it needed my immediate attention,” said Ganassi when talking with the local press.
With the fast-growing nature of the industry, it is only natural that the youth are more inclined towards it with Justin Marks being a sheer example of it, being only 40 and owning the Trackhouse Racing team and even drove professionally for Chip Ganassi’s Racing in 2016.
Two Charters went for $10 million about two weeks ago and along with that Justin Marks also acquired the Ganassi shop and technicalities. However, the details of the were not made public by Marks.
Marks also mentioned that two field cars will also be available for Daniel Suarez and an anonymous driver who will be named later, with Kurt Busch and Ross Chastain being the top candidates for the vacant position. Along with this, the Ganassi staff will be up for retainment however the Ganassi Racing staff will most likely stay with Chip Ganassi’s future endeavours.
