Racing aficionado and Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta announced today that Big Machine Records will sponsor four-time IndyCar Series and three-time Indianapolis 500 champ Dario Franchitti’s No. 10 car for a second consecutive year at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this Sunday (5/26). Franchitti, who took home the title last year as part of the Chip Ganassi Racing team, will once again sport the Big Machine Records’ logo on his helmet and gloves. With engines roaring and the green flag waving, the Indianapolis 500 will air nationally on ABC at noon EST.
"The month of May is always about racing for me. For as long as I can remember, the buzz of the Indianapolis 500 has been ringing in my ears. I'm so thrilled that we once again get to join Dario Franchitti & Target Chip Ganassi Racing as Dario chases a fourth Indy crown on Sunday," said Borchetta, who will be live tweeting from the event via @ScottBorchetta.
The bittersweet weekend marks wins and losses for Borchetta, who was a sponsor (and friend) of the late Dan Wheldon’s winning car in 2011.
