Pataskala, Ohio (24 February 2022) – Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) is excited to welcome Poly (NYSE: POLY) onboard as a sponsor as the Ohio-based team embarks on a big year of competition in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
With MSR kicking off the 2022 race season with two full-season IndyCars as well as a full-season IMSA Acura DPi entry – it’s important for the 2021 Indianapolis 500 winning team to bring technology and communication to the forefront.
Meyer Shank Racing will have four-time Indianapolis 500 champion, Helio Castroneves in the No. 06 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda IndyCar while 2016 IndyCar champion and 2019 Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud will drive the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda. MSR’s Acura IMSA DPi program will see Oliver Jarvis and Tom Blomqvist combine in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Acura ARX-05 DPi.
Poly builds premium audio and video products that are engineered to provide people with the freedom and flexibility to build a better communication and collaboration strategy no matter the location.
“Seamless communications and constant innovation are key to the success of any team and partnering with a company that embodies those principles in their culture and products was a natural fit for us,” said MSR Team Co-Owner Mike Shank. “Running three full-season cars between IMSA and INDYCAR, we are focusing on partnering with brands that make a difference and Poly excels at that.”
“We’re excited to be a technology innovation partner with Meyer Shank Racing for the 2022 season,” said Poly President and CEO, Dave Shull. “Poly’s winning lineup of pro-grade audio and video technology will help drive mission-critical communications for this winning team.”
Meyer Shank Racing will debut its partnership with Poly at the next event, on the team’s busy schedule, with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg staged February 25-27.
