Mouser Hosts Customer Contest Winners at Final Race of the Indy Season

Mouser Electronics celebrated the final Championship race of a successful 2012 IndyCar season with special guests in the Mouser/KV Racing pits. Mouser customers enjoyed a VIP experience, complete with a personal tour of the garage and pit with KV Racing’s top engineers and a celebrity meet-and-greet with Tony Kanaan, driver of the No. 11 Mouser Machine.

"I want to thank Mouser for this amazing experience," one of the customers remarked. "As an engineer and racing fan, this combines both passions of mine. I will never forget this weekend."


The winners, from the California area, won an online contest to receive a behind-the-scenes, deluxe track experience during the recent MAVTV 500 IndyCar World Championship in Fontana, compliments of Mouser Electronics and KV Racing.

"We are excited to be able to share this experience with our customers. It was a tremendous honor to have them here to join us at the final race of the season," says Larry Johannes, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Strategic Marketing.

Kanaan, driver of the No. 11 Mouser Electronics/GEICO/KV Racing Technology Chevrolet/Firestone IndyCar, finishes the 2012 season with a podium finish at the legendary Indianapolis 500. Kanaan was also the runner-up in a close battle for the prestigious A.J. Foyt Oval Championship Trophy.
