Sammy Hagar joins new Indy Pro Series team Music, tequila and now the Indy Pro Series. Sammy Hagar has joined Jon Lewis as co-owner of Team KMA Racing, which will have a two-car entry in the Indy Pro Series for 2007. What a perfect fit for the rocker who “… can’t drive 55.”
“I’m very excited about our entering the Indy Pro Series,” said Hagar, who was lead singer of Van Halen and currently tours with his group Sammy and the Wabos. “The fans of Indy Racing are enthusiastic and it’s a tremendous venue to compete in. I’ve been a car fanatic for as long as I can remember, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of Indy Racing.”
Hagar’s premier brand of tequila, Cabo Wabo, will be highlighted throughout the team’s Indy Pro Series operation.
“I cannot explain how honored and proud I am to have Sammy as my partner,” Lewis said. “I had the honor of promoting Cabo Wabo tequila on our American Le Mans prototype in 2003. Sammy’s a true rocker and so full of energy. He loves the excitement of racing, and we’re going to carry over that excitement to our race operation.”
Team KMA Racing is a joint operation formed by team principals Jon Lewis (American Spirit Racing) and Ingo Strackerjan (Atlantic Racing Team). Team KMA has race operations in the Indy Pro Series and the Formula BMW USA Championship. Team KMA’s multi-car Formula BMW Team will promote Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina. The team expects to announce its driver lineup in the near future.
