CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Andy Lally will return to the Grand-Am Series in 2012 after spending the last season in NASCAR.
Lally will drive for Magnus Racing in the Rolex Sports Car Series GT division next year.
He was the rookie of the year in NASCAR's elite Sprint Cup Series. He drove for underfunded TRG Motorsports but left the team before last weekend's season finale.
Lally ran 30 NASCAR races this season, with a season-best finish of 19th at Talladega. He's hoping to still run NASCAR, particularly road-course events.
Lally is a three-time Rolex Series champion and Grand-Am's all-time mileage and podiums leader. He's also a three-time Rolex 24 at Daytona winner.
He will team with owner/driver John Potter. The two teamed together in 2009 in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
