“We couldn’t be happier with the IZOD team and the enthusiasm they have shown towards the IndyCar Series,” said Terry Angstadt, president of the commercial division for the Indy Racing League. “The IZOD-Macy’s partnership and promotional plan is easily one of the biggest we have seen outside of our endemic space and will transcend the sport. A race-inspired clothing line around the series and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Centennial Era is fantastic for our fans and the sport.”
Under its July 2008 sponsorship agreement, PVH also provides apparel to IRL and IMS executives and crew — from pit officials and track flagmen to the on-air broadcast talent and track announcers. This exclusive collection is inspired by the uniquely American heritage of IndyCar racing and designed to address the performance needs of IRL and IMS staff.About IZOD and Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation:IZOD, one of the United States’ best-known and best-selling apparel brands, is known for its sport-inspired, clean designs and colorful product lines.
