INDY CAR RACER
Legendary IndyCar racer and New Zealander Scott Dixon will represent the growing menswear and lifestyle brand.
We have tapped IndyCar racing driver and five-time IndyCar Series Champion Scott Dixon as our U.S. brand ambassador. The partnership furthers Rodd & Gunn’s commitment to build on its legacy as it pushes forward with global growth plans and cultivates a new generation of fans.
“It’s with pure hard work, dedication and determination that Scott has built his remarkable racing career and these are the same tenets that Rodd & Gunn was founded upon,” said Mike Beagley, CEO of Rodd & Gunn.
Scott Dixon’s race to the top has earned him a prestigious spot in the upper echelons of the motorsports industry and he is regarded as one of the greatest IndyCar drivers in history. He remains the winningest active IndyCar driver with 41 victories and is currently ranked fourth on the all-time IndyCar win list. His list of accolades also includes 287 starts between the CART and Verizon IndyCar Series, producing 41 wins, 26 poles, 141 top-five and 204 top-10 finishes.
2019 marks Dixon’s 18th year with the Chip Ganassi Racing Team, the longest tenure for a driver in its history (1990 – present). This year, Dixon is in pursuit of back-to-back championship titles to add to his illustrious career.
"I’m honoured to partner with a brand with a rich heritage like Rodd & Gunn that celebrates strength and endurance,” said Scott Dixon. “Rodd & Gunn’s longstanding commitment to quality is evident in its beautifully-crafted apparel and accessories and I’m excited to be a part of its global growth here in the U.S."
As part of the partnership, Rodd & Gunn will work with Dixon to create a capsule collection and reinforce the New Zealand heritage of the two of the everyday antipodean Gunn Guy.
