That fresh start will see Roush partner with Mike Canney
to create a new, two-car team called Horsepower Ranch
.Both drivers competed for Rehagen Racing last season, and both felt that the timing was right to grow their programs by partnering and making the best use of their combined resources.
"I'm excited to be working with Mike
on the new team," said Roush
...Officially owned by Canney, Horsepower Ranch will be based in Mooresville, N.C., and be in a better position to utilize the many resources available around the Piedmont region to prepare the cars for competition.
As before, the team will run Ford Mustangs in GS division of the KONI Sports Car Challenge. Canney
was optimistic about the partnership."I am excited about racing with Jack Roush Jr. in the 2009 Grand-Am Koni Sports Car Challenge, under the Horsepower Ranch
team name.We have assembled a very competitive team of people and racing expertise, and are excited about the upcoming season," he
will remain in No. 60 Sunset Hills Vineyard Mustang like last year, and will be joined by Matt Plumb as his co-driver.
...Mike Canney has shown he is able to be a winning driver and owner as witnessed by his accomplishments last season (capturing the season-finale at Virginia International Raceway), but now to have the resources of ROUSH available to our team really is a dream combination."
