SUNNYVALE, Calif. (Oct. 12, 2021) – CrowdStrike and CrowdStrike Racing are pulling out all the stops for the close of the SRO Motorsports America season and the 2021 finale at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s road course.
CrowdStrike Racing will be a force on the track with a full complement of racecars across three different SRO categories: Fanatec GT World Challenge America Powered by AWS, Pirelli GT America Powered by AWS and TC America Presented by Skip Barber Racing Schools.
The premier race of the weekend is the eight-hour round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, bringing together the best manufacturers, drivers and teams for an endurance battle around the 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course inside the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In addition, CrowdStrike’s robust activation program will ensure maximum exposure and awareness for the brand as it concludes another positive season as a stakeholder in SRO Motorsports America. Read more.
ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (September 1, 2021) – CrowdStrike Racing returned to SRO Motorsports America sports car competition in full at Road America over the weekend with entries in two categories.

As Official Internet and Cloud Security Partner of SRO Motorsports America, CrowdStrike uses its presence in racing to showcase its suite of cybersecurity tools to not just those within the paddock and inside race circuits like Road America but also on a global platform with televised events on CBS Sports Network and streamed live on SRO Motorsports’ YouTube channel.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (August 26, 2021) – CrowdStrike and CrowdStrike Racing will return from the SRO Motorsports America summer break in a big way as the series heads to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., this weekend for a three-day festival of speed.
Speed is doubly important in everything CrowdStrike does. As one of the world’s foremost cybersecurity providers, CrowdStrike prides itself in not only speedy responses to breaches but also quickly developing protective measures and tools.
At racetracks like Wisconsin’s Road America – and others on the SRO Motorsports America schedule – speed obviously is the name of the game. Drivers must be quick on track, engineers must rapidly develop race strategies and pit crews must execute pit stops and make needed repairs and adjustments in lightning-fast times.
Those qualities will be on full display throughout the Road America event with DXDT Racing, which will feature a strong brand presence from CrowdStrike. Read more.
