Acura Team Penske’s Helio Castroneves and Ricky Taylor completed a whirlwind media tour Friday in New York City, which included ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
Castroneves and Taylor were joined by IMSA President Scott Atherton for a number of high-profile media appearances in advance of next weekend’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Both drivers made multiple stops throughout the day, including visits to CNN, FOX and ABC Sports, with an Acura ARX-05 show car on display on Wall Street.
The day was capped off at the NYSE, where Castroneves and Taylor were joined by Atherton and other dignitaries on stage to ring the closing bell.
It marked the first significant media event for IMSA in the Big Apple, as momentum builds for the WeatherTech Championship season.
Castroneves and Taylor will be joined behind the wheel of the pair Acura DPis by Dane Cameron and Juan Pablo Montoya for the season, with Simon Pagenaud and Graham Rahal joining them for the Florida endurance classic.
