NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Get stills from Kia Motors Corporation at:
The rapid maturation of Kia Motors' U.S. motorsports program was on display last month in Daytona as Nic Jonsson and Andy Lally drove the No. 10 Infinity Audio Forte Koup to the brand's first-ever podium finish. Following the success in Daytona, Lally will move behind the wheel of a NASCAR Sprint Cup car beginning with the Daytona 500. As a result of his NASCAR duties, Kia Motors America has brought on decorated driver Michael Galati for the remainder of the GRAND-AM 2011 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season. Galati brings a wealth of racing experience and success to Kia's second-year motorsports program – including five national championships and more than 100 race wins – and will pair with Jonsson in the No. 10 car, which finished second in the first race following Kia's "development year" in 2010.
