This week’s slew of title sponsor announcements has to have IndyCar fans feeling like they are on an episode of Oprah: You get a title sponsor! And you get a title sponsor! You all get title sponsors!
Following title sponsor reveals from INDYCAR, Gateway Motorsports Park and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, it is now Road America’s turn to announce a new title sponsor. REV Group will replace KOHLER as the NTT IndyCar Series race weekend sponsor when the event is held June 20-23, 2019.
“REV is excited to be the title sponsor of the NTT IndyCar Series event at Road America,” said Tim Sullivan, President
“We are using the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America to pay tribute to first responders, sharing our appreciation for the dedicated people who use our vehicles each day to serve their communities.”
In today’s announcement from Road America, the track notes that REV will “create a unique hospitality and race experience to salute first responders at the event.”
As the parent company of 30 specialty vehicle brands, REV connects and protects communities around the world with a lineup of vehicle brands that span the bus, emergency (fire and ambulance), recreation and specialty markets.
REV’s lineup of brands features vehicles that help fight fires, transport patients to hospitals, shuttle travelers to airports and children to schools, and create memorable experiences for outdoor enthusiasts. More than 240,000 REV vehicles are in service today across America- a bumper-to-bumper feat that stretches from New York City to Dallas.
“REV Group is a great fit for Road America,” said George Bruggenthies, Road America’s Senior Consultant and former President and General Manager. “They have a unique cadre of brands that have been instrumental in moving America forward. From first responders to families, REV emanates American pride and American success through its diverse vehicle brands.
“We feel that REV will incorporate itself very well with Road America’s fan base while rewarding first responders through this entitlement. We are very excited to have them on board in such a prestigious capacity.”
Road America returned to the IndyCar Series schedule back in 2016 with title sponsorship from KOHLER. It marked the first time since 2007 that Indy cars roamed the 4.014-mile circuit, and KOHLER served as the title sponsor from 2016 to 2018.
