Mouser/Molex-Sponsored IndyCar Preps for Long Beach Challenge

Mouser/Molex-Sponsored IndyCar Preps for Long Beach Challenge


April 5, 2017 – Coming off a stunning victory at St. Petersburg, the season opener of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series, driver Sebastien Bourdais and the Mouser-sponsored No. 18 car are gearing up for the next challenge, set for April 9 in Long Beach, California. Expectations are high following Bourdais’ exciting victory in Florida, where he overcame a last-place start to secure his 36th career IndyCar victory.


Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is proud to partner with valued supplier Molex to sponsor the No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda in this year’s Verizon IndyCar Series. The 2017 season marks the 22nd season of the IndyCar Series and includes the 101st running of the famed Indianapolis 500, set for May 28.  The Mouser- and Molex-sponsored car won the Indianapolis 500 in 2013.

Mouser first sponsored IndyCar racing in 2011 as an inventive way to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies and how they affect the high-tech world of IndyCar racing.

“If the opening race is any indication, we are in for a wild and crazy ride this season,” said Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President, Americas Business Development. “With Sebastien Bourdais driving, this outstanding partnership between Mouser Electronics and Molex is a testament to our collective commitment to speed, performance and excellence — both on and off the racetrack.”

“For us at Molex, this sponsorship is an opportunity to further demonstrate our commitment to developing products that help advance the automotive industry,” said Fred Bell, Vice President of Global Distribution for Molex. “We have a long history of designing small-footprint, high-performance interconnects that excel in challenging automotive applications. We look forward to being a key part of this important partnership.”

After Long Beach, the next stop for the No. 18 car will be the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on April 23, followed by the Phoenix Grand Prix on April 29. From there, the 2017 series features 12 more events, including the Indianapolis 500, a double-header in Detroit, and the season finale at Sonoma, California.
