Scott Dixon will carry PNC Bank’s colors this year after the Pittsburgh company was confirmed as the new primary sponsor on Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 9 IndyCar.
“As a Pittsburgh native, PNC was a trusted brand I grew up with,” said team owner Chip Ganassi.
“I opened up my first account as a teenager, and that relationship later expanded to include my business financing. Our racing team has enjoyed a formal relationship with PNC since 2013, where we have created opportunities to introduce our love of the sport of racing to PNC and their clients.
“Today’s announcement allows us to expand the fan experience at race tracks across the U.S. and take our two winning brands to a global viewing audience.”
The deal represents an expansion of a partnership between CGR and PNC that dates back to 2013.
“Expanding our association with Chip Ganassi Racing and champion driver Scott Dixon brings together two organizations specializing in innovation, determination and a commitment to excellence,” said PNC Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer William S. Demchak.
“As we debut the No. 9 PNC Bank IndyCar this season, the global brand visibility and the unique race track experiences we can offer clients around the country will bring new opportunities for us in an industry that attracts an estimated 54 million fans.”
