Probst will work closely with team competition director Steve Hmiel (pronounced Meal). Probst previously spent five years with Team Red Bull as technical director of their two-car NASCAR Sprint Cup Series operation.
Probst worked for more than a decade at Ford Motor Company, predominantly in their motor sports division. He also held posts at Ford Electronics Racing and Jackie Stewart's Formula One program.
``You owe it to your team, partners and the fans to bring in good people whenever you have the opportunity,'' owner Chip Ganassi said. ``So when John became available we jumped at the opportunity to bring him on board.''
