Newgarden Gets Indy GP Sponsor
INDIANAPOLIS – Klipsch Audio will serve as the primary sponsor of the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing No. 67 Verizon IndyCar Series entry driven by Josef Newgarden during the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on May 10 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Indianapolis-based Klipsch, a leading global manufacturer of premium speakers and headphones, has partnered with the Verizon IndyCar Series team since 2013 as an associate sponsor.
“Serving as the primary sponsor of Klipsch brand ambassador Josef Newgarden during Indianapolis’ inaugural Grand Prix will be a legendary moment for our company,” Klipsch CEO Paul Jacobs said. “Our relationship with the SFHR team has given us a direct link to the sport and its fans for which our headquarter city of Indianapolis is most known. We look forward to the upcoming race, as well as the continuation and growth of our partnership.”
“Bringing Klipsch as the primary sponsor to the inaugural Grand Prix will be fantastic, especially with its headquarters here and the excitement around that particular event,” said team co-owner Sarah Fisher. “We are thankful for their increased involvement and know both SFHR and Klipsch will share the benefits of this great partnership in Indianapolis.”
Klipsch will use Newgarden’s image on a full-size advertisement at the Indianapolis Int’l Airport, creating increased exposure for the company’s premium products to fans flying to Central Indiana for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the 98th Indianapolis 500 on May 25.
