Chip Ganassi Racing revealed the No.48 American Legion Honda that Tony Kanaan will race with during the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 30.
Speaking about livery, Kanaan said:
I’m excited to work with The American Legion this year. “Jimmie and I had some fun filming the unveil videos. This livery is really sharp looking, and I’m so happy to be running my 20th Indianapolis 500 in it. The American Legion is an important resource for veterans in helping make sure they get the benefits they have earned through their service, and I am proud to represent them, and all veterans.
Speaking following the unveiling, Chief Marketing Officer with the American Legion Dean Kessel commented saying:
Just like each one of our military branches, The American Legion will always have and utilize our traditional seal which has deep meaning to each and every Legionnaire. “Our new marketing logo on the No. 48 Honda livery looks fantastic and provides a modern and contemporary expression for the brand. The American Legion name is clearly visible and honors our nation’s veterans while still honoring who we are as an organization.”
