Reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi will have not one, but two show cars on display at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Honda Performance Development will be showcasing the Indy car that crossed the finish line first at this year’s historic Indianapolis 500. Guests can find the No. 98 NAPA Auto Parts / Curb Honda in the Central Hall, Racing Annex & Grand Lobby booth #24887.
In addition to the 100th Running livery, a show car featuring the Castrol EDGE / Curb livery that was driven at the completion round of the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway will be on display in the Castrol EDGE exhibit, located at booth #61014.
The 2016 Rookie of the Year will also make an appearance at the Castrol EDGE exhibit on Friday to sign autographs and participate in a Facebook Live Question and Answer session with our partners at Castrol EDGE. The Facebook Live Q&A will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. local time with the Q & A session following immediately after.
“I’m really honored to have replicas of two cars from my rookie season on display at such a large event,” said Rossi. “We have great partnerships with Honda and Castrol EDGE and for both to have chosen to showcase the No. 98 is very special. I’m also looking forward to hanging out with our friends at Castrol on Friday, answering some questions and signing autographs. I hope we have a good turn out!”
SEMA begins Tuesday and runs through Friday at the Las Vegas Convention Center. More information regarding the trade show can be found via SEMAshow.com.
