Mouser’s Tony Kanaan Takes 2nd at Milwaukee IndyFest
Late race charge results in team’s season-best finish

Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today celebrates a season-best finish with champion driver Tony Kanaan. A late race charge to the front resulted in a spectacular second-place finish at the Milwaukee Mile in West Allis, Wisconsin.

Despite a rain delay and challenging driving conditions, Kanaan posted an impressive race, defeating some of Indycar’s best on the one mile oval driving the No. 11 GEICO / MOUSER ELECTRONICS–KV Racing Technology Chevrolet/Firestone IndyCar.


“Tony’s drive to win is evident any time he’s behind the wheel, and his awesome finish came with proud smiles all around,” said Larry Johannes, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Strategic Marketing. “Mouser has always been proud to support such a talented driver and committed team, and we’re excited to be a part of Tony’s future victories.”

“I am extremely happy, it was a great race,” Kanaan said. “When the last yellow came out, my engineers told me I was good to go to the end and I was pretty happy to take the second. It's a great result for Chevrolet, one, two and three. I have to thank GEICO and Mouser Electronics as well as my personal sponsors. My No.11 crew did a great job today and thanks to the Andretti boys for helping us out when I exited my pit box. The grandstands were packed today and I hope we come back to this track next year, it's an awesome place.”

Mouser’s comprehensive IndyCar racing program provides a high-tech platform to showcase its valued supplier partnerships and to connect with the industry’s top design engineers and electronic component buyers. Engineers are also invited to take the Mouser 500 Challenge, a series of three engineering challenges to help find design solutions to various technical problems relating to the high-tech, high-speed sport of IndyCar racing.
