Andretti Autosport confirmed on Friday morning that their partner Castrol Edge will be the primary sponsor to the No.98 Honda of Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi. Bryan Herta commented by saying:
Castrol EDGE has been a long-time partner of Bryan Herta Autosport and was welcomed into the Andretti stable with our team in February, since 2013 we have seen our relationship grow and were thrilled when we first used the Supercar oil in our Honda engine at Pocono last year. It goes without saying Castrol EDGE played a pivotal role in the success we had at the 100th Running of the Indy 500. It only makes sense for Castrol to have chosen the next speedway after IMS to celebrate the victory of Alexander, Castrol EDGE and the team.
Richard Pond Head of Marketing for Castrol in the Americas commented by saying:
We are delighted to be the major sponsor of Alexander’s #98 car for the Firestone 600, It’s the celebration of a true winning partnership between Castrol, the Honda Performance Development team and of course, Andretti Herta Autosport. The 100th running of the Indy 500 was the perfect demonstration of the strength of Castrol EDGE Supercar oil to perform in the most torturous and competitive racing environments. We were thrilled to be part of the winning effort and thank Honda, Bryan, Michael Andretti and Alexander Rossi for letting us demonstrate what Castrol EDGE Supercar could do.
