The Delavaco Group (“Delavaco”) and PowerOne Capital Markets Limited (“PowerOne”) are thrilled to congratulate their driver IndyCar Superstar Tony Kanaan (“TK”) on his Indianapolis 500 victory. Longtime supporters of Tony Kanaan, Delavaco and PowerOne joined the team as sponsors in 2012.
The 97th installment of the Indianapolis 500 certainly lived up to its reputation as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing and was also arguably one of the most exciting editions of the prestigious event. Fans, drivers and teammates could not have dreamt of a more fitting scenario for Tony’s to win his first Indianapolis 500. Under near perfect conditions, TK treated the hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance to a race which set records for fastest average speeds and number of lead changes.
“We are so proud of TK. He has always been a champion in our view, but this victory is the icing on the cake. Tony is a consummate professional, fierce competitor, gracious teammate and a good person. All these qualities shined brightly on Sunday and are the reason behind TK’s success. We are extremely proud to support Tony as an ambassador of motor car racing at its highest level and as a friend,” said Pat Di Capo, Managing Director of PowerOne.
“Delavaco has been sponsoring racing’s fastest rising stars at various levels of the sport for the last six years, in both North America and Europe, from karting superstar Devlin DeFrancesco, GP3 and IndyCar rookie sensation Conor Daly, former F1 and now 4x Nascar race winner Nelson Piquet Jr and of course IndyCar Champion Tony Kanaan who’s added the Indy 500 winner to his illustrious resume! TK is already considered IndyCar Royalty, but by capturing the Indy 500 win he’s now elevated himself to an elite list with those considered the greatest of all time across the spectrum of motor car racing. It was truly incredible to hear the respect and fan support Tony received during the parade, in the paddock, and coming down the front straight of the race track. It’s for these reasons we at Delavaco are beyond proud to be affiliated with Tony,” said Andy DeFrancesco, Chairman and CEO of Delavaco.
