As the Official Fuel for INDYCAR, Speedway will provide the fuel powering every car at every race in the IndyCar Series, according to information from Hulman and Company. The series’ 2019 schedule features 17 races, beginning with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Fla., on March 10 and concluding with the INDYCAR Grand Prix of Monterey, Calif., on Sept. 22. The schedule is anchored by the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 26.
The agreement also calls for Speedway signage to be placed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Speedway media assets within NBC Sports’ exclusive coverage of the IndyCar Series starting in 2019. Speedway fuel also will power Hulman & Company’s fleet of trucks and IMS equipment.
“We are excited about this partnership with INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” said Tony Kenney, president of Speedway in a news release. “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.”
