Hulman and Company, the parent company of the IndyCar Series and owners of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced on Tuesday that Ohio based convenience store Speedway LLC have become official fuel and convenience store to IndyCar, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500 starting in 2019.
CEO of Hulman and Company, Mark Miles commented by saying:
“Speedway has a large national footprint along with the desire to establish a partnership with the IndyCar Series and its many events reaching millions of consumers. “Speedway also has a broad reach within the region, ensuring a shared interest in leveraging the Indianapolis 500 as a central element of its retail promotion during the month of May. We believe this will be a beneficial relationship for Speedway, INDYCAR and all of our race promoters.
The new multi-year agreement will see Speedway signage appear at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and across IndyCar assets.
Speedway will also supply fuel to Hulman and Company’s fleet of vehicles. Speedway fuel will power all of the IndyCar Series entrants from 2019 onwards starting with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg in March.
Speaking about the new agreement with IndyCar, Speedway president Tony Kenney commented by saying:
We are excited about this partnership with INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “The Indianapolis 500 itself is one of the premier events in the world of motorsports, and Speedway has a strong brand presence in the INDYCAR race markets, so our relationship will be very complementary. The IndyCar Series is a great way to showcase Speedway’s brand and quality fuel offerings, including the fuel that will power the race cars at each event.
