LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Mouser
Electronics
, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and
global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today
announced racing preparations are in top gear for the Toyota Grand Prix
of Long
Beach
, CA. where IndyCar champion Tony Kanaan will drive the No. 11
Mouser Electronics/GEICO/KV Racing Technology Chevrolet/Firestone
IndyCar on April 15.

The Long Beach race signals the green flag for Mouser as it launches
into the 2012 IndyCar season. Mouser first set its sights on IndyCar
sponsorship last year as an innovative way to communicate the company’s
drive for high-performance and speed, and as a high-tech platform to
showcase its valued supplier partnerships. Joining Mouser as co-sponsors
are TTI,
Inc.
, Murata,
Molex,
TE
Connectivity
, Phoenix
Contact
, Littelfuse,
KEMET,
Ohmite,
Hammond,
Harwin,
Digi,
ebm-papst,
Omron,
BIVAR,
Fluke,
and Amphenol.
After a record-breaking 2011 debut, Mouser is eagerly racing into the
new Indy season alongside its IndyCar partners and Kanaan in the
driver’s seat.

The infamous race spans 167 miles of adrenaline-filled track. Ever since
its commencement in 1975, the track at Long Beach has seen decades of
high-intensity, high-speed duels between some of the top names in
IndyCar racing, such as the 1977 race where Mario Andretti avoided a
first-lap, multi-car collision and went on to out-duel Formula One stars
Jody Scheckter and Niki Lauda to become the first American to win an
F/One race in a U.S. Grand Prix.

“The Grand Prix at Long Beach is one of the most exciting IndyCar events
of the year, and after Tony’s impressive performance in 2011, we’re all
pulling for him as he gears up for the challenge ahead,” says Larry
Johannes, Mouser Vice President of Strategic Marketing. “With Tony
behind the wheel, and Mouser and all of our supplier partners cheering
him on, this year’s race is sure to be a pulse-pounding battle.”

Kanaan brings a proven track record to IndyCar racing. In 2003, Michael
Andretti selected Kanaan to take his driver’s seat. He didn’t
disappoint, posting one victory, nine top-five and 12 top-10 finishes in
16 races. 2004 was even more spectacular. He became the first driver in
major auto racing history to finish every lap of every race for an
entire season on his way to driving away with the 2004 IndyCar Series
title. To date, he has captured 14 victories and 14 poles in addition to
his championship run in 2004. For the latest updates on Mouser’s IndyCar
