Driver Marco Andretti’s No. 98 Honda will bear the U.S. Concrete logo and colors as part of a sponsorship spanning six 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series races, starting April 15 with Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (Calif.) and continuing through Indianapolis (Grand Prix and Indy 500), Texas, Pocono and Sonoma.
“The legacy and strength of the Andretti team exemplifies the business units that make up the U.S. Concrete family and is an excellent platform to showcase what we offer,” says U.S. Concrete Marketing Communications Manager Andrew Pinkerton. “We look forward to taking [the Marco Andretti and Andretti Autosport] partnership beyond the race track and integrating the Andrettis’ winning formula into our business.”
“U.S. Concrete is a leading brand in its industry, as is the Andretti brand in IndyCar, so we are very excited about this partnership,” adds Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti.
Ahead of the Long Beach race, Marco Andretti and the No. 98 U.S. Concrete/Curb Honda have joined teammates Ryan Hunter-Reay (No. 28 DHL Honda), Alexander Rossi (No. 27 NAPA Auto Parts Honda) and Zach Veach (No. 26 Group One Thousand One Honda) for spring training appearances in Arizona and Florida.
