Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing announced on Wednesday that Gehl, a brand that specialize in the manufacture and distribution of equipment for the construction industry will return to the team for the Kohler Grand Prix at Road America to be the primary sponsor to Graham Rahal’s No.15 Honda.
Speaking about the news CEO of Manitou Americas and President of the compact equipment division Dan Miller commented by saying:
We are thrilled to be part of the Road America IndyCar event and to have Graham pilot the No.15 Gehl / D-A Lubricant Honda Indy car at our hometown race track. Having Graham back in the driver’s seat of the Gehl and Manitou branded car will surely be exciting for our 190 VIP customers who will be at our event. We are also proud to co-sponsor with our valued partner D-A Lubricant.
Graham Rahal commented by saying:
For me it’s really cool to have the Gehl colors back on my car, It takes me back to 2006, where it all began with Gehl in Formula Atlantic. In my career, Gehl has had such a huge and influential part of everything that I have done. They were the first company of size to back me before I had ever done anything so it’s great to have them back on board for their home race. Connecting Gehl with D-A Lubricant Company, who has been a big part of our team since 2015 and a big part of our success last season, has been fun. It’s good to see the two companies working together.
