Memo Rojas

Memo Rojas began racing karts in his native Mexico, moving up to Formula Two and then to US Barber Dodge before racing in Mexico’s Formula Three series in 1998 and 1999. From 2000 until 2007, he enjoyed success in a series of US classes including Formula Ford, Barber Dodge and Toyota Atlantic.

Switching from open-wheel to sports cars in 2007, Rojas became a star on the Grand-Am circuit, driving for Chip Ganassi Racing. Rojas won his first 24 hour race, the 2007 Rolex 24 at Daytona, which propelled Rojas and teammate Scott Pruett to the Rolex Sports Car Championship with a record-setting six victories.

Rojas finished second in the championship in 2009 before winning the title again in 2010 – and upping the series record for victories to nine, to go along with his 11 podium finishes in 12 races. Rojas won Daytona again in 2011 and 2013 and added a victory in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship last year – the first Mexican driver to achieve that victory.
