Justice Brothers who served as an associate sponsor to Dreyer and Reinbold Racing and Meyer Shank Racing were celebrating on Sunday after witnessing Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda claim his fourth Indianapolis 500 win and the first NTT IndyCar Series victory for the Meyer Shank Racing team.
The victory comes 71 years after Johnnie Parsons took victory in the Indianapolis 500. Speaking about their latest win, President and CEO of Justice Brothers, Ed Justice Jr said:
“We finally got our second, 71 years after our first. “The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a very special place. A place where dreams come true.”
It was Helio Castroneves’ four Indianapolis 500 win and it was not the first time that Justice Brothers sponsored a four-time winner as in 1977 they joined AJ Foyt when he won his fourth Indy 500 in his Gilmore Racing Coyote and speaking about Helio’s victory, Ed Justice Jr said:
“Thanks to Helio from the bottom of our hearts. “You brought tears to our eyes and made us proud, taking us to victory lane 71 years after our first win. And thanks for being part of the Wayne Taylor Racing Team that put us in victory lane this year for the Rolex 24 At Daytona. You’re a real champion and we’re proud to be with you.”
Sage Karam in the No.24 Chevrolet for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing had his best-ever finish in the Indianapolis 500 as he came from the back row of the grid in 31st place to finish the race in seventh place and speaking following the race, Karama who was also sponsored by Justice Brothers commented saying:
“It was a long day, but I feel so good for the DRR team and our sponsors AES Indiana and the 500 Festival. “The DRR crew were awesome today on our pit stops. The crew did an amazing job today and all month. It feels so good to go from 31st to seventh.I am so proud of this team. We are a little one-off race team, and we were battling with the big dogs all day. Dennis (Reinbold) has had faith in me and, today, I was able to bring home a good finish at the biggest race in the world.”
