Kevin Magnussen will represent Chip Ganassi Racing at this month's Daytona 24 Hours, having been a strong contender for the outright win at his first attempt in last year's race.

Magnussen drove for Chip Ganassi Racing with a full-time programme in IMSA last season, and has been called up to drive Ganassi's No. 2 Cadillac DPi-V.R as the fourth driver alongside Earl Bamber, Alex Lynn and Marcus Ericsson.

The other Cadillac, the No. 1, will run with Sebastien Bourdais, Renger van der Zande, Scott Dixon and Ganassi's IndyCar Champion Alex Palou.

Magnussen's sportscar career is set to step up a gear this season, as he participates in Peugeot's new FIA WEC Hypercar programme from this year onwards.

According to Racer, he will not be participating in further sportscar events for Ganassi at this time.

"Our Cadillac drivers lead by example," Chip Ganassi Racing Managing Director Mike Hull said of the driver announcements.

"Each have already won on the world stage. They unselfishly mirror each other's performance on and off track. Their equal experience combined with skill set is driven through zero agenda.

"In today's world of equal performance standards, the driver's contribution is the ultimate separator.

"Our roster has eight of the very best in equal Cadillacs. Bamber, Bourdais, Ericsson, Dixon, Lynn, Magnussen and van der Zande — this group drives as one."
