Mouser Shifts into High Gear with Kanaan for Indianapolis 500
New Video Showcases High-Speed Drive for Top Performance

Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today announces that racing preparations are underway for the upcoming Indianapolis 500, where champion driver Tony Kanaan will race the No. 11 MOUSER ELECTRONICS/GEICO/KV Racing Technology Chevrolet/Firestone IndyCar.

All eyes are on the seasoned 37-year-old Kanaan, who placed fourth and clocked the fastest lap in the race at the recent Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. To see Mouser's new racing video featuring Kanaan at Long Beach, click here.


"We are looking forward to this weekend's Indianapolis 500 with Tony behind the wheel. He did an incredible job at Long Beach, moving up more positions than any other driver on the grid," says Larry Johannes, Mouser Electronics' Vice President of Strategic Marketing. "We are very excited to see him perform on the legendary oval track at Indy. It is the ultimate test of speed and performance."

Mouser Electronics first set its sights on an IndyCar sponsorship last year as an innovative way to connect with the industry's top engineers and as a high-tech platform to showcase its valued supplier partnerships. Joining Mouser as co-sponsors of the 2012 Izod® IndyCar Series are TTI, Inc, Murata, Molex, TE Connectivity, Phoenix Contact, Littelfuse, KEMET, Ohmite, Hammond, Harwin, ebm-papst, Omron, BIVAR, Fluke, and Amphenol.

The Brazilian driver brings a proven track record to IndyCar racing. In 2004, he became the first driver in major auto racing history to finish every lap of every race for an entire season on his way to driving away with the 2004 IndyCar Series title. To date, he has captured 14 victories and 14 poles in addition to his championship run in 2004. Kanaan's Top 5 finish at the 2012 Long Beach race comes as a promise of more victories to come.
