Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced today that team partner Digital Ally will feature their newly-launched product line, Shield™ Cleansers as the co-primary sponsor with Mi-Jack of the No. 45 entry for Spencer Pigot for the GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Digital Ally, a company which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video recording products and other critical safety products for law enforcement, emergency management, fleet safety and security and RLL are in the second year of a multi-year partnership which named the Lenexa, KS-based company as “Official Video Solutions Partner” of the team’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES program.
Earlier this month Digital Ally launched Shield™ Cleansers, which includes a Disinfectant/Sanitizer to fulfill demand by current customers and others for a disinfectant and sanitizer that is less harsh than many of the traditional products now widely distributed. The Shield™ product contains a powerful and effective cleanser with no harsh chemicals or fumes.
“We’re thrilled to not only continue, but expand our relationship with RLL,” said Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally, adding “We can think of no better opportunity to spread the word about our highly-effective, less harsh, cleanser line than through this sponsorship.”
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl), the active ingredient of Shield™ Cleansers, falls under EPA category IV, the safest of the EPA’s toxicity categories. While highly effective as a disinfectant and sanitizer, cleaning crews are not required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when applying and reapplying HOCl.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back in an Indy car at the GMR Grand Prix,” said Spencer Pigot, driver of the No. 45 RLL with Citrone/Buhl Autosport Honda. “It’s obviously been a very different season this year so it’s exciting that we’re finally getting back to racing at IMS. Originally the first race for us was going to be about half way through the season but with the schedule changes it’s going to be the first road course race of the year. I think that will be an advantage for us as everyone will be on more of a level playing field. We have a great group of people at Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with Citrone/Buhl Autosport so the plan is to hit the ground running and be competitive right away.”
In 2019, Digital Ally and RLL came together to give fans an unprecedented live look inside the team’s garage during preparations for the Indianapolis 500 via cameras mounted there. The cameras will be in place again to follow preparations for drivers Graham Rahal, 2017 Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato and Pigot for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 on August 23.
Digital Ally was created to develop and manufacture technology that provides customers with the ultimate liability protection and evidence recording capabilities, coupled with convenience and ease of use. Digital Ally provides law enforcement agencies along with emergency management and commercial companies with the highest quality video solutions and software management.
The GMR Grand Prix will take place on Saturday, July 4 and be televised live by NBC with race day coverage beginning at 12 p.m. EDT. Spencer Pigot’s best finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s road course is fifth in 2019 with Ed Carpenter Racing.
