Taylor Swift takes on the Grand Prix

By  | 

Well not exactly, Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan will be driving a car with Ms.Swift all over it. Big Machine Records, a long time supporter in the racing industry since early 2011, has decided  allow things to come full circle and sponsor Kanaan by having him drive the Taylor Swift 1989 Indy car the same weekend Taylor will be in Detroit performing on her third stop among the North American leg of the 1989 World Tour.

Tony will be driving a car much like the one above this weekend at the Bell Isle  Grand Prix being held in Detroit, MI this weekend. Kann has said “It’s really cool to have Taylor Swift and Big Machine Records on the No. 10 car in Detroit. Big Machine Records has been a really good partner for both myself and the team, and I think it’s great that we get to promote their biggest stars out on the race track. I’m hoping that some of Taylor’s luck we saw last weekend at the Billboard Music Awards will carry over with me into our doubleheader in Detroit.”


We’re right there with you Kanaan, hopefully Taylor’s fans will be cheering you on from Ford Field this weekend as well.

Follow Taylor on Instagram to keep up with her daily and maybe if racing is more your style follow Tony Kanaan on Instagram as well.


Everyone here at SRS wishes both Taylor and Tony best of luck this weekend. We have a feeling they’ll both kill it!
