WHAT TIME IS IT? IndyCar announced a deal making Tag Heuer the official watch of the series and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Assets include sponsorship of the Tag Heuer Pit Stop Challenge, held annually on Carb Day before the Indianapolis 500. The brand also has created a special edition Indy 500 Chronograph that features a grey stylized dial patterned after the track's brick start/finish line and a printed "INDY 500" logo inside the counter (IndyCar). It is unclear "whether drivers or teams with other personal watch contracts will need to switch" (NBCSPORTS.com, 8/6).
