Kawsniewski Has A Lot to Smile About.

Dylan Kawsniewski was signed to a development contract with Chip Ganassi Racing over the weekend.

Ganassi has cars driven by Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray, and the deal means that the 18-year-old Kawsniewski will be groomed to be the third Sprint Cup Series driver for the team.

Kawsniewski said he's grateful that he has this opportunity.

"It's my best opportunity to get to the top," said Kawsniewski. "I have to learn. I have to prove myself. I'm not just going to get a free ticket up to the top. I have to go out there and perform."

Ganassi said he knows he's taking a bit of a gamble on such a young driver.

"When you look at all his variables, you say, 'He has the least amount of question marks,'" Ganassi said. "We're first and foremost a race team, and it's important we run at the front."
