It is the first time in Foyt’s storied career that a liquor company has been associated with his IndyCar team.
"I'm happy to have Sammy Hagar and his company involved with our team," said A.J. Foyt, who is celebrating his 50th anniversary in Indy car racing this season. "Cabo Wabo is a premium tequila and I think our race fans will show their appreciation in a responsible way. Our team will help promote responsible drinking which creates a win-win for everyone. And there's nothing I like more than winning."
"To be given the opportunity to be a part of such a great sport, and to do it along side A.J. Foyt's team is such an honor," Sammy Hagar said. "The fans, the team, the races, they all represent the best of what motorsports has to offer. We're looking forward to a great season!"
Darren Manning will drive the No. 14 Dallara/Honda for Foyt's team in the IndyCar Series. The season kicks off Saturday night, March 24 at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Fla. It will be televised live on ESPN2 starting at 8 p.m. eastern time.
