SEBASTOPOL, Calif. — Californian Geoff Ensign enjoyed a successful winter racing down under.

As a result, he has a spot in the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge. However, Ensign is seeking a ride in order to take advantage of the opportunity to compete in the World Challenge, which will be held Aug. 8 during the 54th annual Knoxville Nationals at Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway.

“I am hoping I can find a team that is looking for a driver to go run the Nationals, as well as the World Challenge race,” Ensign said. “After running all winter in Australia, I earned a berth in the race and would love to compete in it.”

Ensign performed well in Australia, capturing the Victorian State Title, a very prestigious race in Australia.

While he is looking for a ride for sprint car racing’s biggest week, Ensign is not without a ride this year. He has won all five 360 sprint car races held at Petaluma (Calif.) Speedway this season.

Ensign previously participated in the Knoxville Nationals in 2012.

“I have been very lucky and fortunate to find opportunity all over the world to showcase my talent,” he said. “I am hoping that with this race locked in, I can find a team and go have some fun for a week.”
