(AllHipHop News) Multiplatinum Grammy Award-winning music super-producer Jim Jonsin, up and coming American racer Joel Miller, and father-son duo Gary and Mark Jensen are competing in the 2012 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge competition
The competition which is set to premier live from Daytona in Saturday, February 4th on SPEED TV, will make Jim Jonsin, the only team owner and pro-driver in the music industry, to compete in a division of NASCAR.
Jim Jonsin’s Rebel Rock Entertainment combines music and racing to create a pop culture experience that will put Jim behind the wheel, as he makes his debut as pro-race car driver.
“Being the best is knowing how to bring the best out of others,” Jonsin told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “As a music producer I’m one of the best, and now I plan to build the best race team.”
In 2011, Jonsin took his lifelong love of road racing to the next level, by launching Rebel Rock Racing.
He later became the first music producer to obtain a FIA International Motor Sports Driver’s License.
In August 2011, Jim Jonsin and Team Rebel Rock placed in 1st and 2nd place in the SCCA Race Weekend at Daytona Speedway.
Jonsin is responsible for chart-topping singles by musical acts like Lil Wayne, Beyonce, T.I., Usher and Kelly Rowland.
Jonsin’s Rebel Rock Racing team vows to bring the best of the pop music lifestyle to Grand Am in every race by introducing live entertainment through the attendance of celebrity Rebel Rock supporters.
