Speaking of winning, BSN products and the brand itself have won more than 35 sports nutrition awards over the course of the last seven years, more than any other company in the industry.

SH Principal James “Sulli” Sullivan echoed Vasser’s comments: “Integrating BSN products throughout the team will certainly give the team a competitive edge, but it will also give IndyCar fans one as well. There is a BSN product for every IndyCar follower.”
