Texas Motor Speedway confirmed on Monday that the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series event has a new primary sponsor, with Rainguard Water Sealers taking over from Firestone.
The 2016 race was rescheduled after being postponed mid-race as a result of a rain delay and when it resumed it was one of the closest race finishes in Verizon IndyCar Series history with Graham Rahal edging out James Hinchcliffe by the slimmest of margins.
President of Texas Motor Speedway, Eddie Gossage commented by saying:
We are extremely pleased to have Texas Motor Speedway and ‘America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race’ serve as the initial sponsorship venture into motorsports and sports in general for Rainguard Water Sealers. “We look forward to providing Rainguard with an exceptional first experience as an entitlement sponsor and help the company attain their goals through this sponsorship agreement.
President of Raingaurd International Claude Florent commented by saying:
I’ve always believed that Indy racing is a great way to move a company’s brand to the next level. That coupled with the incredible venue at Texas Motor Speedway, made the decision easy. We are committed to solidifying Rainguard as a respected national brand of home-improvement sealers, and creating effective and safe solutions for every homeowner throughout the nation. There is no better way than partnering with Indy and Texas Motor Speedway.
