BROWNSBURG, Ind. (March 8, 2022) – Today, Tony Stewart and the All Star Circuit of Champions are pleased to announce Tezos as the official series title sponsor. The announcement follows FloSports’ recent introduction of a multi-year technical partnership with Tezos, the world’s most advanced blockchain. Tezos will make its official debut when the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 points championship season commences on April 8.
Together, the All Star Circuit of Champions, FloRacing and Tezos will educate sprint car fans on blockchain technology, the opportunities available through the Tezos blockchain and NFTs (non-fungible tokens), including the creation of All Star specific NFTs.
“When Mark and his team presented the idea of replacing their FloRacing brand with Tezos as our title partner, we were intrigued by the concept,” said Tony Stewart. “Tezos is global brand with existing partnerships with Red Bull Racing and reigning Formula 1 champion, Max Verstappen, Manchester United, and the New York Mets. This is a terrific opportunity to align the All Stars with a non-endemic title partner that has enthusiasm to connect to our All Star tracks and fans. This will be an educational experience for us all and we look forward to playing our part in connecting our fans to Tezos.”
The relationship between the All Stars and FloRacing otherwise remains unchanged for 2022 and beyond with every All Star event being streamed live exclusively on FloRacing. The first events of the 2022 points season will take place at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, April 8-9.
“Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions is a perfect platform to build awareness and excitement about blockchain in the world of motorsports,” says Michael Rigsby, Vice President, Motorsports, FloSports. “Tezos is fast-becoming one of the most innovative brand partners in sports and we’re proud to bring these two teams together. More exciting things to come!”
