INDIANAPOLIS – Andretti Autosport announced its partnership with headphone brand and music lifestyle company Sol Republic on Wednesday and, in doing so, jointly celebrate Kurt Busch’s historic attempt at “the double” on May 25.

Busch will attempt to become the fourth driver to compete in two races on Memorial Day weekend, first at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway driving the No. 26 Suretone Honda in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” and at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca-Cola 600 that same day.

Sol Republic, which is committed to changing the world one listener at a time, brings the power of music to Andretti Autosport with limited-edition headphones created exclusively for Kurt and the team as they race into the record books.

“Music and racing go hand in hand,” said Seth Combs, Sol Republic co-founder and CMO. “We are thrilled to bring the power of music to celebrate Kurt’s incredible 1,100-mile feat and the entire Andretti Autosport team with our race inspired limited-edition headphones.”

“I’m happy to welcome Sol Republic to the Andretti Autosport family,” said Andretti Autosport team-owner and open-wheel racing legend Michael Andretti. “The Sol Republic family is as dedicated and passionate about music as we are about racing, and our shared passion is in perfect harmony as we support Kurt’s 1,100-mile effort.”
