Ford GT must have driver

With the new Ford GT beginning its program in the Weathertech Championship next year, since there are no drivers announced as of yet, we thought about which drivers could be a target of acquisition.

It's not that straight forward to come up with a list. But there is one single driver who is not currently affiliated with the Ganassi or Multimatic group, who we think would be a high value recruit.

It is....Bryan Sellers. With the Falken program gone next year, Bryan is another hot shoe without a top drive. Even if Derrick Walker were to put together a program we doubt it would be as well funded and supported as the Falken Tire team was.

Bryan is well known by fans, and has a loyal fan base, having driven for an underdog fan favorite team, he knows the series, he is American, he is fast, and has experience developing tires.

In our opinion he is a must have for the Ford program. He will quickly generate fan excitement. Not to mention, he's a big fan of Scott Pruett.
