Arrow McLaren SP and their partner Vuse has teamed up with sportswear brand UNDEFEATED for the second year in a row that will see UNDEFEATED design each of the liveries of the No.5, No.6 and No.7 Chevrolet cars for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 29.
UNDEFEATED will also design the garages and race suits for Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Juan Pablo Montoya.
Speaking about the renewed partnership, founder of UNDEFEATED, James Bond said:
Continuing our partnership with Arrow McLaren SP, and partner Vuse, for the second year to bring streetwear designs to racing canvases at the Indianapolis 500 is a huge opportunity for the brand and industry. I’m excited about the expanded design collaboration and to bring to life UNDEFEATED’s vision across the Arrow McLaren SP team, unifying our brands on and off the racetrack during the month of May.”
Taylor Kiel, President of Arrow McLaren SP commented saying:
With the success of last year’s design, the team was ecstatic to welcome back this partnership between Arrow McLaren SP, Vuse and UNDEFEATED to elevate our position on and off the track. Collaborating with a brand like UNDEFEATED through innovation and art during IndyCar’s biggest moment of the year helps to bring the sport forward, drive creative innovation, and foster additional interest in the sport.
Pato O’Ward, driver of the No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet commented saying:
How cool is it to have special liveries across all three cars? I think once the fans see all three Arrow McLaren SP liveries on track, they will see how unique the collaboration with UNDEFEATED is. The Indianapolis 500 is the most special moment of the year for the entire team and these custom liveries just take it up a notch.
Juan Pablo Montoya, driver of the No.6 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet commented saying:
I can’t wait to get back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Arrow McLaren SP, this time with an UNDEFEATED design on the No. 6 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet. This partnership is close to home for me because my cousin was part of the design process with James [Bond]. To be able to drive a car that I know was designed by family, that’s special.”
Felix Rosenqvist, driver of the No.7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet commented saying:
I am really excited for UNDEFEATED to return to the team this year for the Indianapolis 500 after last year’s successful partnership with Vuse on the No. 7 car. I loved how unique my car was last year and I think it will be even better this year to have three UNDEFEATED-designed cars on the track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I have enjoyed getting to know James [Bond] and the team at UNDEFEATED and look forward to working closer with them.
All three Arrow McLaren SP drivers will be action at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday and Thursday as testing gets underway for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
