A.J. Foyt Enterprises is well known for being the only Verizon IndyCar Series team based in Texas.
While it still will stay in its main Houston base (in nearby Waller, Texas), it’s also expanded to the heart of the series’ home base in Indianapolis.
A team release out Thursday confirmed the team has bought and will renovate a 45,000-square foot building located at 1180 Main St., Speedway. The first round of renovations will include adding a brick facade to the north side of the building and installing windows on the south side.
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway holds a rich part of my history and future,” said A.J. Foyt. “During the racing season, it makes sense for our team to operate close to the track where my name was made. I remember what Main Street looked like when I first came to Indy and the Commission has managed to modernize it but retain the area’s history too. We’re happy to be part of Speedway’s redevelopment.”
The Foyt shop is near the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing shop in Speedway. The SFHR shop will serve as the home of the merged SFHR/Ed Carpenter Racing teams, now known as CFH Racing.
The move-in process of ECR personnel to the SFHR shop is now complete, the team confirmed earlier this week.
