Bryant Installs Ductless Comfort Systems in Chip Ganassi Racing Garages Ahead of 106th Indy 500, Keeping Drivers and Crew Cool

Bryant, a sponsor of the Indy 500 since 1958, installed ductless systems in all Chip Ganassi Racing garages to provide cool, comfortable workspaces for crew members and drivers

INDIANAPOLIS, May 31, 2022 — Today, Bryant announced the installation of Bryant ductless systems in all Chip Ganassi Racing garages in support of cool, comfortable workstations. Bryant is once again sponsoring Tony Kanaan, driver of the No. 1 The American Legion Honda. This will be his 21st Indianapolis 500 appearance. Bryant, a leading supplier of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

Bryant has a rich tradition in auto racing and is the longest-standing non-automotive sponsor at the Indianapolis 500. Legends such as Eddie Sachs, Rodger Ward, Cale Yarborough, Scott Brayton, Chip Ganassi, Stan Fox and Janet Guthrie have all run under the Bryant racing banner. Tony Kanaan earned Bryant its first-ever victory at the 2013 Indianapolis 500.

“Bryant has been a part of the Indianapolis 500 for a long time, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be providing indoor air quality and cooling solutions to Chip Ganassi Racing, their teams and drivers, in support of optimal working and racing conditions,” said Justin Keppy, President, NA Residential & Light Commercial HVAC. “Tony Kanaan embodies Bryant’s Whatever It Takes® philosophy, and we are honored to return as a sponsor for Chip Ganassi Racing at the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.”

“Thanks to the Bryant units here at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, our garages are cool and comfortable,” said Tony Kanaan, driver of the No. 1 The American Legion Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing. “From the drivers to the crew, we’ve been very happy with Bryant’s support of the team and protection from the summer heat. Now, let’s go and win the Indianapolis 500.”

For Bryant, the Indianapolis 500 also serves as an opportunity to celebrate its Bryant Factory Authorized Dealers who have gone above and beyond in pursuit of product sales growth, equipment sales, customer satisfaction, outstanding service and participation in various dealer programs and promotions. Of those, Medal of Excellence, Circle of Champions and Pinnacle winners will be recognized from across North America.
