Chip Ganassi Racing Teams Set The Pace Updating Free Mobile Application

Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) and SapientNitroSM, part of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced the re-launch of their updated mobile app, which was one of the first mobile applications for the high-velocity world of racing. The application brings fans the latest news for driver and event information, and exclusive content in one centralized and expansive mobile experience, bringing the rich heritage and legendary success of CGRT right to the palms of your hands.

The CGRT mobile app update will introduce a weekly interactive game called “Call the Race”, which allows fans to predict the outcome of the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and ranks the game players on a leaderboard based on their correct answers throughout the season. Each week, the top-three players with the highest score will receive a digital gift card by email.

The Chip Ganassi Racing Teams mobile app provides up-to-date, behind-the-scenes video content straight from the Team’s official YouTube Channel Ganassi TV, a one-stop shop for breaking news stories and at-track social media updates from all seven drivers and six teams, as well as a FanCam, which is an interactive element that allows fans to be creative with CGRT images. The mobile application conveys the high-octane rush of racing for a team that competes at the highest levels in three touring series – the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the IZOD IndyCar Series and the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series – allowing fans to make their iPhone and iPod Touch a unique part of their race-day experience.

Key App Features:
· Up close and personal information about all of the CGRT drivers including: bios, stats, photos, and racing resumes
· Real-time breaking news straight from the team
· Aggregated Twitter feeds from all your favorite CGRT drivers, live tweets from the track and links to the official team Facebook and Instagram pages.
· Behind-the-scenes video on Ganassi TV and photography from race events, interviews, and events
· Upcoming race event details including series' calendars, event dates, and locales with notifications
· Current driver statistics and points standings after every race
· Updated race data for each driver and overall post-race results
· Engaging fan interactions, including promotions and giveaways, racing trivia with leader boards and scoring, FanCam photography, and Call the Race weekly competition
· Clickable sponsor interactions including a store location finder and special offers
