Green Savoree Racing Promotions has a announced a new partnership with PPG Industries, naming them as the official paint sponsor of all three of their Verizon IndyCar Series races, which include the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, the Honda Indy Toronto, and the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
“We are thrilled to partner with PPG across our entire portfolio of race properties,” said Kevin Savoree, President and COO of Green Savoree Racing Promotions. “PPG is consistently on the cutting edge of innovation and aligns with our company’s goals to deliver outstanding results. With PPG’s long history in motorsports sponsorship, the relationship with GSRP is a natural fit, and we are looking forward to seeing all facets of the partnership in action during the 2017 season.”
The announcement sees PPG’s sponsorship commitments continue to increase. Once the title sponsor of the PPG IndyCar World Series, the company returned to the sport in 2011 as an associate sponsor with Team Penske. Their involvement has steadily increased since then and is now branching out to include event partnerships.
“It’s very exciting for us to partner with Green Savoree and be part of the Verizon IndyCar Series,” said John Outcalt, PPG Vice President, Global Automotive Refinish. “It’s a great opportunity for PPG to associate itself with a very successful organization whose racing events provide a thrilling spectator experience. We look forward to being trackside with GSRP.”
