Juncos Hollinger Racing announced on Froday hot on the heals of teaming up with Racing For Children that they have entered into a partnership with Racing For Children’s presented by Medical Properties Trust for the No.77 Chevrolet driven by Callum Ilott for this weekend’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
Ilott will debut the No.77 Racing For Children Chevrolet later today at Barber Motorsports Park.
Speaking about the announcement, team co-owner Ricardo Juncos said:
This is an exciting weekend for us as we can show off our new partnership with Racing for Children’s and Medical Properties Trust. “We are thrilled to have the colorful handprints on board the No. 77 Chevrolet and look forward to carrying them with us throughout this season. It is an honor to represent RFC and all that they stand for and do for these special children.”
Team co-owner Brad Hollinger commented saying:
We are very excited to have MPT as a sponsor in conjunction with Racing for Children’s. “MPT has been and continues to be a significant supporter of this exceptional charitable organization. MPT is a very successful international company who is also very community minded. JHR is very proud to have MPT and Racing for Children’s joining forces to generate even more support for such a wonderful children’s cause.
Callum Ilott, driver of the No.77 Racing For Children Chevrolet commented saying:
After testing the oval at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last week, we are looking forward to our first road course race of the season at Barber. Luckily, I got the chance to test at Barber and iron out any little issues we may have had so hopefully we can hit the ground running at Barber. It’s a fun track. It will be difficult to overtake in the race, but hopefully we can get a better qualifying run and move up a few places. Otherwise, the weather looks a bit questionable so that could make it a bit interesting, but we will have to see. This is also a big weekend for us with our new partnership with Racing for Children’s. I am looking forward to meeting all of these wonderful people and hope to put on a good show for them Sunday.”
