SiriusXM Canada featured on both MSR Acura GT3 entries
Pataskala, Ohio (27 June 2018) – As the team looks ahead to back-to-back weekends of IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition, Meyer Shank Racing is pleased to announce a new commercial partnership with SiriusXM Canada.
SiriusXM Canada has joined forces with Meyer Shank Racing with a sponsorship centered around Round 6 of the IMSA championship at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) on July 6-8.
The No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 driven by Katherine Legge and Alvaro Parente will have a new livery heading into the Watkins Glen race weekend transitioning from its grey graffiti design to a sleek black look featuring SiriusXM Canada branding throughout. The partnership will also have a branding presence on the custom red, white and blue livery that the No. 93 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 will carry for the next two rounds with drivers Justin Marks and Lawson Aschenbach.
Entering the Watkins Glen weekend having won its last time out with a strong 1-2 team finish in Detroit, the commercial tie-up links two strong organizations, with SiriusXM Canada offering over 200 channels of commercial-free music, talk, sports, comedy and entertainment, including in-depth race coverage.
The No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NXS GT3 enters the Watkins Glen race weekend holding second in the championship points standings and will look to continue a strong season with the sprint outing at CTMP north of the border in partnership with SiriusXM.
The No. 93 Acura NSX GT3 piloted by Aschenbach and Marks will also carry SiriusXM for both race weekends as they look to close the gap after moving into fourth in the championship after scoring a runner-up result in Detroit.
“It’s really exciting to have SiriusXM come on board with us,” said Mike Shank. “Everyone has shown true excitement for the program. We’ve got two big weekends ahead of us and hopefully we can come out of these races with some strong results and points for the championship.”
Tune into both Watkins Glen and CTMP race weekend which will be broadcast on SiriusXM channels: Sirius 138, XM 202, Sirius Online 967.
