INDIANAPOLIS – Long-time Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach sponsor King Taco will grow their relationship with Harding Steinbrenner Racing this weekend.
The Mexican fast food company will serve as primary sponsor of Colton Herta’s No. 88 Honda-powered Indy car on the 1.968-mile temporary street course around the Long Beach Convention Center. King Taco is a current season-long associate sponsor of the Harding Steinbrenner No. 88.
“Super happy to have king taco on board for Long Beach as a primary sponsor for the #88 Indy car,” said Herta. “King Taco has always supported the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach and IndyCar as a whole. Their tacos are amazing, and being from Los Angeles…I know what a street taco should taste like.”
“It is very exciting to welcome another sponsor to the Harding Steinbrenner team for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach,” said team co-owner Mike Harding. “Let’s bring the #88 King Taco car to victory lane so we can celebrate with victory tacos.”
“Delighted to have King Taco as the team’s primary sponsor for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach,” said team co-owner George Michael Steinbrenner. “They are a Long Beach staple and I feel so proud to have them on board. Hoping to bring home a good result on Sunday.”
A Herta family tradition is to enjoy victory tacos after a race win, but King Taco is taking the victory taco celebration further. If Herta wins the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, anyone who attended the race can enjoy a free taco. Fans can bring their ticket stub into any participating King Taco location in Southern California and present it at the time of ordering to receive a free victory taco until April 30 if Herta wins.
