Indianapolis, IN (May 10, 2001) - Thermos Grill2Go, built by Char-Broil, is proud to sponsor Scott Goodyear's #52 Thermos Grill2Go Cheever Indy Racing Infiniti for the 85th running of the Indianapolis 500, Char-Broil CEO Tim Horne announced Thursday.

"Char-Broil has been interested in getting involved with motorsports for a number of years," explained Horne. "With Thermos Grill2Go" and the opportunity to support the Cheever Indy Racing team at the Indy 500, Char-Broil saw this as an excellent vehicle to support its leading position in the outdoor grill industry."

"Auto racing and tailgating go hand-in-hand, and Thermos Grill2Go" is a product that helps bring these two American pastimes together," said Horne.

"I'm very excited and pleased that Thermos Grill2Go" has joined us for the world's biggest motor race, the Indianapolis 500," said two-time Indianapolis 500 runner-up Scott Goodyear. "My family and I will certainly have use for a product like this, as will the numerous fans who watch our sport across North America."
