The No. 98 car of Marco Andretti will see support from a vast portfolio of brands as the Andretti Herta Autosport w/ Marco Andretti & Curb-Agajanian team takes to the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season.
“We are fortunate to have such a growing, and diverse, partnership portfolio,” said Andretti Autosport Chairman & CEO, Michael Andretti. “We have strong returning brands such as U.S. Concrete, and Oberto Specialty Meats, and are especially happy to also welcome new partners like PDI and Surgere to the Andretti family.”
Leading the way will be the red and white of U.S. Concrete, serving as primary sponsor on the No. 98 for eight races across seven markets: St. Pete, Long Beach, Austin, Indianapolis, Dallas, Richmond and Monterey. The Texas-based company specializing in aggregate production and ready-mixed concrete, first joined Andretti in 2018. Through innovation, research and development, and strategic alliances, U.S. Concrete remains the leader in concrete manufacturing and green building.
Debuting their brand to the INDYCAR racing community will be PDI, a leading global provider of ERP, Fuel Pricing, Logistics, and Marketing Cloud solutions for the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale industries. PDI’s solutions are in over 200,000 customer locations across more than 50 countries. For more than 35 years, the company has helped customers thrive through digital transformation and deliver exceptional customer experiences. PDI will take on primary sponsorship of Andretti for the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America.
Joining the INDYCAR sponsorship ranks for the first time will be Surgere, a leading technology company solving visibility across the global supply chain. Surgere’s role in the evolving i4.0 reality is to provide their clients with advanced asset visibility, data analytics and control through each segment of the supply chain throughout various industries. Headquarted in Green, Ohio, Surgere will stay close to home as the primary sponsor at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in August.
No stranger to racing and the Andretti Autosport portfolio, Oberto Specialty Meats will return as the primary sponsor for two events. The Seattle-based company will again leverage the races in St. Louis and Portland to highlight their distribution partnership with convenience store retailer Circle K as well as use the Andretti team as a platform to elevate the launch of their new wood smoke jerky and imported Italian charcuterie.
The No. 98’s liveries for each of the brands and markets will be released as race dates near for each event.
