WALLER, Texas — 7-Eleven, Inc. was there for Tony Kanaan’s first Indy car race at Texas Motor Speedway and the company will ride with him again during Saturday’s Genesys 300 at the 1.5-mile superspeedway.
Kanaan’s No. 14 A.J. Foyt Racing Chevrolet will be decked out in the green, white, red and orange livery as Kanaan kicks off his “#TKLastLap” tour.
“Being reunited with 7-Eleven for the Texas race means a lot to me,” said Kanaan. “7-Eleven was my primary sponsor for eight straight seasons and the recognizable green 7-Eleven car became my trademark.
“Most of my success came while defending their colors and I couldn’t be happier to have them back with a full paint scheme for my #TKLastLap campaign, especially at Texas Motor Speedway,” Kanaan added. “They’ve been there for most of my career and it’s very fitting to have 7-Eleven join us at A.J. Foyt Racing doing a throwback for this race.”
Kanaan has an impressive record at TMS with nine podium finishes in 20 starts, including a victory in 2004.
“I’m thrilled this came together, as there is so much history between 7-Eleven and Tony,” said Larry Foyt, president of AJ Foyt Racing. “This is the perfect sponsor to kick off Tony’s Last Lap campaign. We are looking forward to representing them well and putting on a great race at the always exciting Texas Motor Speedway.”
