Chip Ganassi Racing Teams announced a mutli-year deal with TNT Energy Drink, continuing Indianapolis 500 Winner Tony Kanaan’s longtime relationship with the brand.
“TNT first came onboard with me at the end of 2010 and they were the first ones to tell me I would stay in the IndyCar Series when I had no sponsor and no team to race, so I’m more than excited to have them join Chip Ganassi Racing for this new chapter of my career,” Kanaan said. “I’m looking forward to a strong season with them at Chip Ganassi Racing.”
TNT Energy Drink is the third-largest energy drink brand in Brazil.Chip Ganassi Racing Teams and Kanaan announced last month a multi-year deal for the Brazilian to drive a fourth IndyCar Series entry beginning in 2014 with sponsorship from NTT DATA, a leading global IT services provider.
“Bringing TNT Energy Drink into our partnership lineup further enhances Tony’s program for the No. 8 team heading into 2014,” said Steve Lauletta, President, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams. “They are one of Tony’s longtime sponsors and we’re excited they are continuing their relationship in the IndyCar Series with us. We look forward to helping them further grow their business both in the US and globally.”
