  • Ward drives the Miami Heat

    Homestead, FL - Chip Ganassi Racing announced today that the NBA's Miami Heat Basketball team
    will sponsor the No. 9 Chevrolet/G Force piloted by veteran driver Jeff Ward.

    The one-race deal was agreed upon today at the Homestead-Miami International Speedway.
    Team owner Chip Ganassi feels that the cross-promotion will benefit both parties involved.
    "This is a mutually beneficial relationship for both Chip Ganassi Racing and the Miami Heat,"
    Ganassi said. "This allows both parties to benefit from the exposure that the Indy Racing League
    and the National Basketball Association provide. We are honored to carry the colors of the
    Miami Heat this weekend as we pursue a victory in the season-opening race in Homestead."

    Jeff Ward, last year's pole-winner at Homestead-Miami Speedway is happy to don the logo of
    the Miami Heat franchise.

    "I'm excited to have the Miami Heat on the car this weekend," Ward explained. "They're a
    winning organization with great athletes. We're hoping to get the Heat in Victory Lane."

    Is it going to be painted like a basketball?

      Is their owner the Miami the guy who owns Advance Auto Parts or is that the Dolphins or Marlins owner?

      Maybe a longer term sponsor potentially.

        They could have a cool paint scheme on Ward's car with the Miami Heat logo & flames! I hope they don't through the words "Miami Heat" on the side pods. That would be a major yawner!
