Nissan Sponsors Film Screening on the Racing Life of Paul Newman

Race Track

Academy Award®-winning actor, Paul Newman, stars once again onscreen in WINNING: The Racing Life of Paul Newman. The film is a documentary honoring the multi-talented man for the many successes experienced behind the wheel over his 35-year racing career. Nissan has the privilege of being the proud sponsor of two film screenings and their after-parties.

“Paul Newman not only won an Oscar® as an actor, but also amassed four national championships as a driver and eight championships as a team owner, with many of his most significant victories coming behind the wheel of Nissan and Datsun vehicles,” said Jeremy Tucker, Nissan North America vice president of Market Communications and Media. Tucker goes on to say that, “Paul never stopped racing, winning his last race at the age of 82, and we’re excited to help honor his rich legacy as a racer and humanitarian.”

Nissan vehicles are not only on display throughout WINNING, but they are also highlighted at the parties following the film screening. Guests have the opportunity to check out some of Nissan’s now-vintage models as well as a couple of the brand’s GT-R GT3 racers, which currently see quite a bit of action on the track. In addition, they’ll be able to get up close and personal with the all-new 2016 Maxima, Nissan’s “4-Door Sports Car” for the racer in all of us.

The first screening was held on April 16 in Los Angeles just before the Long Beach Grand Prix. The second is scheduled for May 22 in Indianapolis, which coincides with the Indy 500.

Proceeds from tickets sold for the documentary screenings are pledged to the Racing for Cancer and The Indy Family Foundation non-profit organizations.
