“We’re really excited to have TODAQ come onboard for the 2020 IMSA season,” said co-owner Mike Shank. “Misha (Goikhberg) has worked hard to develop this partnership with TODAQ and MSR. It’s a truly innovative partnership deal that we’re excited to represent on track. It’s been five months since we raced at Daytona for the Rolex 24, so we’re eager to get back on track to restart the IMSA season.”
“We’re honored to support the Meyer Shank Racing team and this great championship series,” agreed Hassan Khan, CEO and co-founder of TODAQ. “From America to Asia, we’ve deliberately moved into the auto space from the commodities that form batteries and tires to supporting efficient and sustainable transport regulation at a national scale. For us, the Acura NSX, Misha (Goikhberg), Alvaro (Parente) and their support team is symbolic of all those elements coming together on the road.”
