From the Houston Chronicle:
Kingdom Racing to join IndyCar Series — It was announced Thursday that Kingdom Racing would begin operations with the goal of racing in the 2008 IndyCar Series season. Kingdom Racing is owned by Houston businessman George Del Canto and a team of racing, financial and sports marketing professionals.Umm, OK. It beats having Hugo Chavez as a backer, but do you think Gene Simmons will be helping them find sponsors? Could be awkward.
The team's premier focus will be to win on the racetrack, create value for its sponsors and change people's lives through on-track ministry.
"The team's vision is to deliver the word of God through motor sports," Del Canto said. "To reach this goal, we must field a championship-caliber race team, as only front-runners earn credibility, and deliver the value to the sponsors' investment."
You can read more about them at the Kingdom Racing web site, which by having an internet presence already puts them ahead of other would-be teams. Judging from the graphics it would seem they would like for their cars to look a lot like Chip Ganassi's. They probably want them to go just as fast too.
