Speaking following the news, Trion Solutions president and co founder David L Stone Esq said:
All of us at Trion Solutions couldn’t be more thrilled to be associated on the same team as such a famous name in all of sports. “And, the Andretti name represents the same traits for which we strive at Trion, including integrity, passion, precision, speed, quality and winning.”
Trion Chief Operating Officer Craig Vanderburg commented saying:
We know the No. 98 car driven by Marco Andretti will be seen by millions and the storyline of Mario’s grandson seeking to win on the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s Indy 500 victory will be followed closely by the media and during the NBC broadcast of the race. Trion Solutions considers many sponsorship and advertising opportunities, but we felt this one was really special. We jumped at the chance for Trion Solutions to be showcased on the car and we look forward to the other three races as well – especially the two Detroit Grand Prix races in our backyard.”
