Kanaan To Drive Sunoco-Turbo Car At Texas, Other Races

In a renewed relationship with longtime Indy car sponsor Sunoco, Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan will drive the No. 11 Sunoco "Turbo" car at the IZOD IndyCar Series events at Texas Motor Speedway (June 8), Iowa Speedway (June 23), Pocono Raceway (July 7) and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Aug. 4).

The car's livery will feature the lead character from the upcoming DreamWorks Animation feature film "Turbo" about a snail who's dreams of competing in the Indianapolis 500 come true. It features the IZOD IndyCar Series and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Sunoco's first Indy car race as a primary sponsor was Dec. 1, 1968, at Riverside, Calif. The No. 12 Sunoco Eagle driven by Mark Donohue for Penske Racing started fifth and finished 21st (broken right-front suspension). In 1972, the No. 66 Sunoco McLaren won the Indianapolis 500 - the first for Roger Penske, Donohue and Sunoco.

Sunoco returned to IndyCar racing as a primary sponsor in the 97th Indianapolis 500 on May 26 on the No. 60 Sunoco "Turbo" Panther Racing car driven by Townsend Bell.

"I am very proud and happy that Sunoco will be my primary sponsor for four upcoming races," Kanaan said. "Along with Sunoco, 'Turbo' will be riding along with me in those events. My son, Leo, will be excited to see that, and I am very proud to be associated with what is sure to be a very special movie.

"Sunoco has a long heritage in Indy car racing beginning in the late 1960s and is a proven winner. I look forward to my association with them and hopefully get them to victory circle starting in Texas."
