HOUSTON (February 27, 2007) - Sammy Hagar is a legend in the world of rock 'n roll and now he is joining the legend of motorsports, A.J. Foyt. Hagar's Cabo Wabo Enterprises has signed as an associate sponsor of A.J. Foyt's IndyCar team for the 2007 season. It is the first time in Foyt's storied career that a liquor company has been associated with his IndyCar team.
"I'm happy to have Sammy Hagar and his company involved with our team," said A.J. Foyt, who is celebrating his 50th anniversary in Indy car racing this season. "Cabo Wabo is a premium tequila and I think our race fans will show their appreciation in a responsible way. Our team will help promote responsible drinking which creates a win-win for everyone. And there's nothing I like more than winning."
"To be given the opportunity to be a part of such a great sport, and to do it along side A.J. Foyt's team is such an honor," said Sammy Hagar. "The fans, the team, the races, they all represent the best of what motorsports has to offer. We're looking forward to a great season!"
Darren Manning will drive the No. 14 Dallara/Honda for Foyt's team in the IndyCar Series. The season kicks off Saturday night, March 24th at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, FL.
About Cabo Wabo
Cabo Wabo Tequila was created by Sammy Hagar originally to have superior tequila to serve to his friends and in his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Sammy Hagar partnered with a small Mexican tequila maker, the Rivera family, who had been in operation since 1937. Cabo Wabo is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave and comes in four different varieties including Reposado, Blanco, Anejo and Uno (launching in April 2007). It is acknowledged as one of the finest tequilas made in the world today. Cabo Wabo continues to win top competitive tasting awards, recently receiving a double gold metal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
