Western Union Renews with RuSPORT and Allmendinger for Vancouver

After delivering the highest rookie finish for the Molson Indy Toronto, Western Union has renewed their sponsorship for this weekend's Molson Indy Vancouver with RuSPORT and American rookie A.J. Allmendinger.

"We are very pleased to have Western Union on board for the second consecutive race," said team owner Carl Russo. "RuSPORT is committed to developing a NAFTA-based marketing platform and Western Union is the world leader in cross-border monetary transactions. RuSPORT's attributes of speed and precision provide them with a targeted branding vehicle in Canada and across the NAFTA region".

The 11th-place finish by Allmendinger in the yellow No. 10 Western Union car at the last stop on the 16-event Champ Car calendar ties A.J. in the battle for the coveted Jim Trueman Rookie of the Year title. In just six events, the Colorado-based driver has garnered four top-ten qualifying efforts and three top-ten finishes. Allmendinger hopes to continue the momentum forward for Western Union this weekend in Vancouver. In Allmendinger's last visit to the streets of the city he brought home a victory in the Barber Dodge Pro Series on his way to capturing the series title as a rookie.
