IRL Gains New Sponsors

The IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights recently signed new sponsors for the 2009 season and beyond. DB Schenker is the official freight logistics sponsor of the IndyCar Series, and KYMCO USA is the official scooter and off-road utility vehicle of the IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights.

DB Schenker is a worldwide logistics company with operations in approximately 2,000 locations and 130 countries. The IndyCar Series will coordinate logistics via DB Schenker's American operation based in Freeport, N.Y., and the company's Sports Event Group. Overall, the company will arrange transportation logistics for the series' four Honda Accord safety cars at events across the United States and Canada in a specially designed and branded transporter.

The safety cars include the car driven by three-time Indy 500 winner Johnny Rutherford that paces all IndyCar series events. The other safety cars are used for VIP and special guest hot laps at all events as well as being on display in the IndyCar Series paddock.

In addition to coordinating logistics for the league's safety car program, DB Schenker will assist in logistics for the series annual visit to Japan and other potential international venues in the future.

KYMCO USA, a longtime leader in quality, fuel-efficient scooters, motorcycles and ATVs has teamed up with the IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights in a multi-year partnership. Throughout 2009, IndyCar Series personnel will use KYMCO Super 8 150cc scooters and UXV 500 4x4 utility vehicles at race venues as well as at its headquarters in Indianapolis. The Super 8 150 features a fuel-efficient 150cc, SOHC air-cooled engine, front disc brakes, and KYMCO's popular CVT transmission. KYMCO 4x4 UXV 500s side-by-side utility ATVs provide a comfortable ride for driver and passenger, as well as a 420-pound capacity cargo bed.
