The Times-Tribune - - SPORTS -

Alexan­der Rossi has re­placed fel­low Indy­car driver Gra­ham Rahal at Acura Team Penske for the IMSA sports car en­durance events.

Rossi will share the No. 7 Acura ARX-05 DPI with full­time Penske drivers He­lio Cas­tron­eves and Ricky Taylor in the Rolex 24 at Day­tona and 12 Hours of Se­bring.

Rahal had been the co-driver for those events last sea­son but said on so­cial me­dia Fri­day he’s too big to prop­erly fit in the car. Rahal is listed at 6-foot-2.

Rossi is a for­mer In­di­anapo­lis 500 win­ner who has slowly been ex­pand­ing his sched­ule be­yond Indy­car. He won the ABC Sup­ply 500 at Po­cono Race­way in Au­gust.
