President of Napa Ballkamp commented by saying:
The entire NAPA family is extremely happy with the incredible performance of Alexander Rossi and the entire Andretti Autosport/Bryan Herta Team. With the NAPA AUTO PARTS Car winning the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 it only makes sense to continue to race the NAPA colors in Detroit.
Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti commented by saying:
NAPA joined us just in time for the historic 100th Indy 500 and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with being able to provide them the win. It’s great to see the partnership expand into a sponsorship for Alexander in Detroit and we hope to continue conversations and grow into an even larger relationship.
