Mouser Electronics, Inc., a leading global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, congratulates Tony Kanaan for his outstanding podium finish on Saturday at the MAVTV 500 IndyCar World Championship at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, and a successful IndyCar 2013 racing season.
Kanaan, who ended the season with 397 points, demonstrated his tremendous driving skills and racing ability throughout the final event of the season. “It was a great feeling to give the team a podium finish in our last race,” said the champion driver afterwards.
The 2013 season has been remarkable with Kanaan behind the wheel of the Mouser-sponsored #11 IZOD IndyCar, full of thrills, chills and podium finishes capped by victory at the legendary Indianapolis 500. Kanaan, IndyCar’s reigning Iron Man, continues to break the consecutive race record every time he drives onto a track. He scored the record-setting accomplishment with his 212th consecutive race at this summer’s Grand Prix of Baltimore.
Mouser is an official partner of the 2013 KV Racing Technology #11 IZOD IndyCar Series team. This year’s valued co-sponsors include TTI, Inc, Sager, Amphenol, Bivar, ebm-papst, Fluke, Hammond Manufacturing, Harwin, LEMO, Molex, Murata, NKK Switches, Ohmite, and Phoenix Contact.
Kanaan finished the season with six top-10 finishes including five top-five showings, three podium finishes and a victory at the 2013 Indianapolis 500.
“The victory at Indy alone, made this season one for the record books,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Vice President of Business Development. “It’s been an unforgettable season for all of us here at Mouser as well as for our valued co-sponsors. We are proud to have been a part of it.”
