VIZIO Takes Indy & Charlotte Race Weekend

It was a great weekend of fast cars and exciting races for the VIZIO IndyCar and NASCAR drivers. 

Saturday afternoon saw rookie Kyle Larson dominate most of his competition to take 4th place after starting 18th at the NASCAR History 300 in Charlotte, NC. 

Sunday was the biggest day for any race fan with not only the Indy 500 in Indianapolis, IN, but also the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 taking place in Charlotte, NC.

Ryan Briscoe put in a great effort in the #8 NTT DATA car, co-sponsored by VIZIO and HuluPlus at the Indy 500 and secured a 12th place finish for his team. Back in Charlotte, Jamie McMurray endured some problems with his #1 car, which put him in 19th place when the checkered flag waved.

We’re very proud of all of our VIZIO drivers and look forward to seeing Kyle Larson back in the #32 VIZIO/Hulu Plus Chevy for races in Dover and Iowa over the next two weeks.

On Sunday, we’ll be rooting for Ryan Briscoe driving the No. 8 NTT DATA Honda, co-sponsored by VIZIO and Hulu as he strives to be the quickest driver in the Indianapolis 500. Tune in to ABC to cheer Ryan along with us. The green flag flies at 1pm ET.

If you haven’t gotten enough racing by the end of the race in Indy, switch over to Fox Sports at 6pm ET to keep an eye on our driver Jamie McMurray who will be racing No. 1 Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet SS in NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600. 

Good luck to all our racers this weekend!

Ryan Briscoe Races VIZIO Hulu No. 9 

"I absolutely think I can win it this year." -Ryan Briscoe

Ryan Briscoe was the first on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the No. 8 NTT DATA car and the last on the 2.5-mile oval as the second day of practice for the 97th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race drew to a close. It just felt … “normal.”

“When I went out, it was like I never left driving IndyCars,” said Briscoe, the 2012 pole sitter for the 500 Mile Race. “It feels good to be back in the groove of things.”

Briscoe, who competed in 14 races during his first IZOD IndyCar Series season as a teammate to Scott Dixon and Darren Manning in 2005, has seven Indy 500 starts (two top-five finishes, 31 laps led). He’s logged more than a race worth of laps already this week on the 2.5-mile oval in preparation for the May 26 race.
