CONCORD, N.C. (October 9, 2007)-On the heels of Dario Franchitti’s successful stock car debut in the ARCA race at Talladega Superspeedway last weekend, Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) announced today the reigning Indianapolis 500 and IndyCar Series Champion will continue his development program in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Franchitti will qualify the No.41 Target Dodge Ram next Saturday at Martinsville Speedway.Nothing like making your first truck ride at the half-mile thumpfest at Martinsville.
