Sage Karam will make an unexpected fill-in appearance at Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates for this weekend’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Brickyard Grand Prix, as he’ll sub for the injured Memo Rojas in the team’s No. 01 Ford EcoBoost Riley.

The team said Rojas was ruled out of action due to a nagging back issue.

There’s been drama in the build up to this afternoon’s Mobil 1 Sportscar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, as the Chip Gansssi Racing Riley-Ford has suffered a major setback in today’s race due to an accident on the reconnoissance lap.

Memo Rojas was at the wheel of the No. 01 Telmex-sponsored DP when he lost control in Turn 2 on a damp circuit and made heavy impact with the barriers.

The Mexican driver was evaluated and released from the infield medical center but the car sustained considerable damage to the front, rear and left side.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Memo Rojas will start tomorrow’s inaugural SFP Grand Prix from the pole, following a heated battle in qualifying this evening at Kansas Speedway.

Rojas laid down a 1:09.883 lap time late in the 15-minute session, putting the No. 01 Telcel Riley-BMW on the top spot for the two-hour and 45-minute race on the six-turn roval.

“I got a bit worried halfway through qualifying because we had bad luck with traffic,” Rojas explained. “We waited to get a big gap on pit lane and suddenly we started to catch the gentlemen drivers. Lap after lap, I was losing the best grip of my tires.
