Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation and its IZOD brand has been the primary sponsor of the IZOD IndyCar® Series and a proud supporter of the Indy Racing Experience since 2010. Among the several elements of the IZOD-Indy Racing Experience partnership is complete branding of the IRE's Walt Disney World® Speedway operations, including single-seat and two-seat cars. IZOD has also utilized IRE and its sister-company EMI for show car and street-legal 2-seater activation, as well as the build and operation of the IZOD Performance Pit and the IZOD Pit Stop Challenge. Perhaps the cornerstone of the agreement is IZOD's use of the high-speed 2-seater prior to each race, including the Indianapolis 500. In 2010, IZOD and Honda launched a nationwide campaign to allow a lucky fan to ride shotgun in the 2-seater prior to the IZOD IndyCar® Series race in Sonoma, Calif. www.izod.com
The Indy Racing Experience is proud to be affiliated with the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the IZOD IndyCar® Series
