Tony Kanaan

“When Wallace Santos from Maingear introduced me to Micro Center I immediately realized why they are a leader in their segment. I’m extremely excited to be associated with the brand on what is still a pretty new segment for me. I started racing simulators during the pandemic and never thought I would get so hooked up to it. That led into streaming and having a presence on Twitch, something that I’m now really enjoying. I’m looking forward to this partnership and many other projects that we will be doing in the future.”
