Veteran IndyCar writer Curt Cavin was named Friday as vice president of communications for INDYCAR.
Cavin, who has spent nearly the last 30 years as a sports writer for the Indianapolis Star – including being the newspaper’s IndyCar beat writer and columnist for over two decades – will assume his new role with the racing series on Oct. 24.
“Curt is already a leading voice on the Verizon IndyCar Series and the best candidate to share the speed, excitement and drama of the sport,” said CJ O’Donnell, Hulman Motorsports chief marketing officer. “Curt will enhance our ability to share the compelling stories of our drivers and thrilling action on track.
“His skills and experience will complement the efforts of our strong existing communications team and will further the progress the series has seen in the past three seasons.”
Cavin will lead INDYCAR’s public relations, media relations and digital media efforts, particularly national media coverage of the series and sport.
“I can’t wait to bring my multimedia experience covering motorsports and other national sporting events to the talented team already in place at the Verizon IndyCar Series,” Cavin said. “I am looking forward to building upon the momentum generated by the series this year.”
