Andretti Autosport announced on Monday that Zach Veach’s No.26 Honda which last season was under the primary sponsorship of Group 1001 will have primary sponsorship for the entire 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season from Gainbridge with the American driving the No.26 Gainbridge Honda.
It was announced last week that Gainbridge will be the presenting partner for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 26.
Speaking about the announcement, Chief Experience Officer of Group 1001, Andres Barragan commented saying:
“Last week, we announced that Gainbridge would be the presenting sponsor of the iconic Indianapolis 500. This week, we are excited to extend our Gainbridge brand to the No. 26 Zach Veach car. “For Gainbridge, branding the No 26 for all of the 2019 season represents a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate a bold and steady way to continued success. We are extremely excited to have Zach and the No. 26 Gainbridge car represent us in 2019.
Zach Veach who made his NTT IndyCar Series debut with Andretti Autosport last season commented on the news saying:
To be a part of it at such an exciting time, with a company to represent like Gainbridge and Group1001, is very special,” said Veach. “Gainbridge believes in achieving financial goals through consistency and endurance. And that’s exactly how I approach racing. It’s not sheer speed that matters, it is about going fast enough to win, but slow enough to finish, and never taking risks or pushing the car any more than needed to be in the right place on the last laps. We like winning, and so does Gainbridge. It’s something that lines up perfectly. I can’t wait to get the season started and get the Gainbridge car on track.
