Kanaan’s Indy 500 Car To Raise Awareness of Veteran Suicide

2013 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge winner Tony Kanaan and Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb joined forces Wednesday to unveil Kanaan’s livery on the No. 1 The American Legion Honda that Kanaan will drive in the 106th edition of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” on Sunday, May 29. “In the past, I have driven with two ones on my car, but this year I am proud to have only one and encourage all Americans to “Be The One” to help The American Legion end veteran suicide.”. The American Legion, the nation’s largest veterans service organization, is also an official charity of INDYCAR. This is the second year that The American Legion and Chip Ganassi Racing have teamed up for the Indianapolis 500. This is Kanaan’s 21st appearance in the race; he finished 10th in last year’s 500. The American Legion is the largest veterans service organization with nearly 2 million members in more than 12,000 posts across the nation.
