Grand-Am: Chip Ganassi Racing fields second entry at Indy for Tony Kanaan and Joey Hand

Chip Ganassi Racing has entered a second BMW-Riley in the Daytona Prototype class for Tony Kanaan and Joey Hand, ahead of the upcoming Brickyard Grand Prix, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The three-hour race is the eighth round of the Grand-Am season, as well as being the third and final round of the North American Endurance Championship (NAEC).

Hand, a long-time BMW driver who splits his time between the American ALMS and German DTM championships in 2013, has 61 starts, including six wins, to his name in Grand-Am.

Kanaan raced only twice in Grand-Am before, but his career in IndyCar and CART adds up to 209 consecutive starts, of which 16 wins, including one at the Brickyard this year.

The pair will race alongside Ganassi's leading duo of Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas, who share the No. 1 BMW-Riley.
