Chip Ganassi Racing announced on Monday that they have entered into a partnership across the racing operations with 5.11® The partnership will see all Chip Ganassi Racing team pit-crews kitted out with 5.11® apparel.
Speaking about the new partnership CEO of 5.11® Tom Davin stated:
We are proud to support CGR’s mission with 5.11 purpose-built gear. Our brand is tightly connected to motorsports. Our versatile gear performs in challenging environments, from rugged outdoor settings to high-speed action in the pits. Becoming part of the Ganassi family is a match between two top-performance brands.
President of Chip Ganassi Racing Steve Lauletta commented by saying:
We’re excited to welcome 5.11 to Chip Ganassi Racing. The quality of their product offering for our team at the race track was at the center of this decision as the apparel’s style, functionality, and most importantly, durability made 5.11 an easy choice for us to partner with. Plus, their excitement for NASCAR has continued to grow over the last several years and being able to introduce them to our team in the world of IndyCar racing is exciting for all of us. We’re also happy to showcase all of our pit crew members in both our social and digital content.
