The American Legion made history on May 30, when the organization’s branding appeared for the first time ever in the Indianapolis 500. Now American Legion Family members have the opportunity to reserve a piece of that history in the form of a die-cast replica of the car.
American Legion Emblem Sales now is taking pre-sale orders for 1:64 scale and 1:18 scale versions of The American Legion No. 48 Honda that Tony Kanaan drove for Chip Ganassi Racing to a 10th-place finish in the Indy 500. The die-cast versions can be ordered here. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the cars will go to fund American Legion programs that assist veterans and military families.
Kanaan also drove The American Legion No. 48 Honda to fourth- and seventh-place finishes in the Genesys 300 and XPEL 375 earlier this NTT INDYCAR Series. Last winter, The American Legion and Chip Ganassi Racing entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement for the No. 48 Honda in the NTT INDYCAR Series, with seven-time NASCAR Series champion Jimmie Johnson driving a version of the No. 48 car that includes American Legion branding during this season’s road race, and Kanaan driving with a livery featuring The American Legion in oval races.
