Excitement Grows As Young Driver Santino Ferrucci Helms No. 18 Car
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IndyCar—Mouser Electronics, Inc. is proud to once again sponsor the Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan race team throughout the entire 2020 NTT IndyCar Series. Joining Mouser in the sponsorship is valued supplier Molex.
The 17-race season kicks off March 15 in Florida at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, and includes the 104th running of the famed Indianapolis 500, set for May 24. The team welcomes Santino Ferrucci as pilot of the Mouser- and Molex-sponsored No. 18 car. Ferrucci made an impressive debut in IndyCar last season, finishing seventh in the 2019 Indy 500, earning the race’s Rookie of the Year award.
“Ferrucci is an impressive young driver who brings a lot of excitement to the team,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President, Americas Business Development. “We are ecstatic to sponsor the Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan car and to support the team and Ferrucci in what promises to be a dynamic season.”

Our sponsorship further demonstrates our commitment to developing products that help advance the automotive industry.”
Mouser and Molex first sponsored IndyCar racing in 2011 as a way to communicate their performance-driven business models and promote innovative technologies. The Mouser-sponsored car won the Indianapolis 500 in 2013.
