Troy, Mich.-based HR-administration company to be prominently featured on car at four NTT IndyCar Series races
TROY, Mich. — A bigger name than “Andretti” has never existed in the history of motor sports, and that name will loom larger than ever during the month of May when the Indianapolis Motor Speedway commemorates the 50th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s 1969 Indy 500 victory.
Current NTT IndyCar Series driver Marco Andretti, Mario’s grandson who drives for Andretti Autosport, owned by his father Michael Andretti, will make a special run for the checkered flag driving the No. 98 U.S. Concrete/Curb Honda. Marco’s car will feature the associate sponsorship from Trion Solutions, one of the largest HR-administration companies that works with more than 600 client companies across the United States to manage payroll and taxes, benefits administration, workers’ compensation and regulatory compliance.
The Trion logo will be prominently featured on the side cockpit area of the No. 98 car for the INDYCAR Grand Prix on Saturday, May 11; the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 26; and, two races at the Detroit Grand Prix on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. All four races will be televised live on NBC network.
“All of us at Trion Solutions couldn’t be more thrilled to be associated on the same team as such a famous name in all of sports,” said Trion President and Co-Founder David L. Stone, Esq. “And, the Andretti name represents the same traits for which we strive at Trion, including integrity, passion, precision, speed, quality and winning.”
Trion Chief Operating Officer Craig Vanderburg said, “Throughout the month of May, the Andretti name will continue to reign supreme in motorsports and across the globe. We know
the No. 98 car driven by Marco Andretti will be seen by millions and the storyline of Mario’s grandson seeking to win on the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s Indy 500 victory will be followed closely by the media and during the NBC broadcast of the race. Trion Solutions considers many sponsorship and advertising opportunities, but we felt this one was really special. We jumped at the chance for Trion Solutions to be showcased on the car and we look forward to the other three races as well – especially the two Detroit Grand Prix races in our backyard.”
Andretti Autosport Chief Marketing Officer Doug Bresnahan said, “We are always excited to bring new partnerships into our NTT IndyCar Series program and we are thrilled to add Trion Solutions to the Andretti Autosport family of partners. We strive in making our team the best, both on and off the track, and with the values of Trion Solutions and Andretti Autosport strongly aligned, I have no doubt we will have a successful partnership for four of the biggest races of the season.”
