Speedfreaks welcome Gil de Ferran on Sunday night

Gil de Ferran will be the featured guest Sunday on SpeedFreaks, which airs at 10 p.m. ET Sunday night

De Ferran Motorsports owner and now-retired driver will discuss the 2009 American Le Mans Series season that saw the two-time CART champion and Indy 500 winner take five overall victories in their XM Acura ARX-02a, the most of any team in the championship, including the season finale two weeks ago at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

The pairing finished second in the LMP1 title race, losing out to David Brabham and Scott Sharp in the Patrón Highcroft Racing Acura.

De Ferran announced in August his retirement from driving and will concentrate on expanding the de Ferran Motorsports operation. Ideally, he said, the team would run two prototypes in the American Le Mans Series and two in the IndyCar Series.

Listen to the show live on XM Channel 143, Sirius Channel 122 or online at sportsbyline.com/audio.htm (click Listen Live). The interview also will be available on-demand starting Monday at speedfreaks.tv.
