It just shows how strong our relationship is with the organization as a whole that NTT Group has come back now for their third race as the primary sponsor with one of our cars. We’re excited that NTT Group is back on-board with us, especially during this historic month of May.

We’ve had such a strong start to our season with NTT DATA as the primary partner on the No. 10 Chevrolet and it’s going to be great having NTT Group come on board to start the month of May out right at the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. We talk about it all the time, but the whole company has become so much more than just a sponsor, they have become a true partner for Chip Ganassi Racing Teams. This month of May is going to be truly historic and I’m glad that NTT Group and NTT DATA will both be along for the ride.
