Indianapolis, Indiana May 13, 2024

Juncos Hollinger Racing revealed today that the No. 77 and No. 78 NTT INDYCAR SERIES entries of Romain Grosjean and Agustin Canapino will carry unique livery designs at this month’s 108th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Presented by Gainbridge. Each livery has been crafted to reflect the persona of both drivers, aptly titled ‘The Phoenix’ and ‘The Titan’ respectively, while staying true to the INDYCAR team’s recognizable branding and colorway.

Despite a serious accident in 2020, Romain continues to pursue his passion of racing and hasn’t let the experience stop him from doing what he loves. It instead became a catalyst for growth, pushing him to become the best version of himself.

“The Phoenix is how you take a bad experience and turn it into a good experience. Obviously, my experience was in the fire, but The Phoenix is a way to say to people that they can do it,” shared Romain Grosjean, driver of the No. 77 Juncos Hollinger Racing entry. “Just because you go through something brutal, it doesn’t mean that you can’t come back from it, rise from it, and reach a better level. That’s what I like about the Phoenix – it’s not the fire, it’s the rise after it.”

The No. 78 entry of Juncos Hollinger Racing, Agustin Canapino’s car is designed after his signature persona ‘The Titan.’ Hailing from a small town in Argentina, Agustin has risen to become one of the most successful drivers in the country’s history and is now establishing himself as a force within the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. The Power of Possibility saw his dream come true in 2023 when he completed his first full season in INDYCAR. Coined ‘The Titan’ by motorsports fans in his home of Argentina, he has become a hero to them, especially those loyal to Chevrolet.

“I am incredibly proud to represent the people of Argentina, and even more proud of the nickname they have bestowed upon me,” says Agustin Canapino, driver of the No. 78 Juncos Hollinger Racing entry. “The title of The Titan has grown with me as I have spent over a decade fighting for and winning championships, and it feels right to honor my nation by personifying the name during the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

“The Indianapolis 500 is an exemplary platform for our drivers to showcase who they are on a global stage,” says Ricardo Juncos, Founder and Co-Owner of Juncos Hollinger Racing. “The Indy 500 is the most amazing live sporting event in the world. The energy, excitement and drama are unparalleled in not only motorsports, but all sports. These special liveries create an opportunity for fans around the globe to get closer to our amazing drivers and team,” states Brad Hollinger, Co-Owner of Juncos Hollinger Racing. Mark Myers, Chief Marketing Officer of Juncos Hollinger Racing adds, “These unique livery designs give fans and sponsors alike the opportunity to learn more about the personality of the team and the drivers. The Indianapolis 500 is centered around storytelling, so there is no better opportunity than now to share these impactful stories of our own – while staying true to the team’s bespoke branding to make it easier for fans to follow us throughout the season.”

The Phoenix and The Titan livery designs can be seen on the Juncos Hollinger Racing Indianapolis 500 entries May 14-26, 2024. Watch the lead up to the race May 14-26 and the battle for the Triple Crown title on May 26 at 11am ET on NBC, Universo, and Peacock.
