ABC SUPPLY EXTENDS CONTRACT WITH A.J. FOYT RACING THROUGH 2010
WALLER, Texas December 18, 2008--ABC Supply Co. Inc. has extended its contract with A.J. Foyt Racing to sponsor the No. 14 Dallara/Honda/Firestone Indy car driven by Vitor Meira. The contract locks in the sponsorship for the 2009-2010 seasons with an option year for 2011.
As part of the agreement, the company will again sponsor the ABC Supply/A.J. Foyt 225 IndyCar race at the Milwaukee Mile on Sunday, May 31.
"We are thrilled to have ABC Supply on board for the next two seasons," said A.J. Foyt, who inked the deal earlier this month with America's largest wholesale distributor of roofing, siding and windows. "We've had a really good relationship with everyone at ABC Supply for the last four years and I'm very happy that it will continue. They have been an important part of our being able to turn this team around and I believe they will see that it has been worth it. I think 2009 is going to be a great year for us."
"This will be our fifth year sponsoring racing legend A.J. Foyt and the A.J. Foyt Racing team," said David Luck, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABC Supply. "The values and work ethic that have served this racing dynasty are the same values that fuel ABC Supply, and we are excited to team up with A.J. once again."
The season starts with the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in that city on the Florida Gulf on Sunday, April 5th.
