are extremely exciting and I cannot wait to get behind the wheel of the GR
Pontiac Solstice and begin preparations.”

network , Gardella Racing Team Owner Gary Gardella also commented on the
deal , “There are a lot of talented drivers out there, many of whom applied to

champion driver, a great spokesman for partners, and a team player, expecting
to be more involved in the team in addition to driving.”

More details on the extent of O’Sullivan’s role with Gardella Racing will be
