Andretti Autosport announced on Tuesday that Military To Motorsport will serve as Alexander Rossi’s primary sponsor for the No.27 Honda in the Phoenix Grand Prix at ISM Raceway next weekend.
Speaking about the partnership, Rossi who won the 2016 Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil commented by saying:
This is such an exciting announcement and something that I am so proud to be a part of. “I bleed red, white and blue and it honors me to be a spokesperson for an organization that is determined to help those who have fought for our freedom. This is wonderful timing with the rebirth of the Verizon IndyCar series – I look forward to trying to get the Military to Motorsports car to victory lane.
Military To Motorsport first entered into the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2017 with Rossi for the race in Pocono where the American scored a podium finish.
Speaking about the partnership, Military To Motorsport co-founder and retired navy veteran Major David Tilton commented on the news by saying:
“I am very excited about the Phoenix Grand Prix – not only for the team, but also for our Veterans. The race weekend will be a chance for Military to Motorsports to showcase our effort in helping these true heroes who have put their lives on the line for us, so that we can enjoy the sport of racing.
Tilton went on to say:
This year, we have expanded our Military to Motorsports initiative to Andretti Autosport’s partners, allowing more opportunities for our military Veterans in various locations nationwide. The Phoenix race is a great opportunity to create more awareness of our program; generating a positive impact on our heroes and their families, as we support them with their transition from their military lives to the private sector.
