KV RACING TECHNOLOGY & SH RACING
ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP FOR 2011 INDY 500 ENTRY
Team REDLINE Xtreme comes to the World's Biggest Race with newly-formed team association
ATLANTA, Ga. (Oct. 7, 2010) -- SH Racing unveiled its Team REDLINE Xtreme livery for its 2011 Indy 500 entry to an excited crowd Wednesday night at the NACS Convenience Store Show in an announcement that includes the team partnering with KV Racing Technology.
The racing car will officially be presented as the KV Racing Technology-SH Racing entry and will carry the Team REDLINE Xtreme colors in the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
The 2011 Indy 500 is scheduled for May 29, 2011 at the legendary 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval.
"We are amped up to partner with Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser in the 2011 Indy 500," said James 'Sulli' Sullivan, co-owner of SH Racing. "We have discussed partnering with Kevin and Jimmy for quite some time. Today, we made it a reality and we could not be more excited."
T.J. Humphreys is Sullivan's partner in SH Racing.
KV Racing Technology entered four cars in the 2010 Indy 500.
"We are very pleased to team up with SH Racing for the upcoming Indy 500," said Kevin Kalkhoven. "This year's 500 will be special with the 100th anniversary and we are planning to have strong organization for the world's biggest race."
"Developing the KV Racing-SH Racing program this early for the 2011 Indy 500 gives us a huge head start on fielding a great effort for the Team REDLINE Xtreme entry," said Vasser, co-owner of KV Racing Technology and a multi-time oval race winner. "We are thrilled to have formed a partnership with SH Racing and there will be no shortage of energy on the Team REDLINE Xtreme at Indy next year."
Sullivan and Vasser expect to announce a driver for the Team REDLINE Xtreme in the future.
"Sulli, TJ and I have already talked about the possible candidates to drive the Team RED Xtreme car," said Vasser. "We will look over all of the possibilities and put together a very professional and solid operation for the Team REDLINE Xtreme entry. I am very excited to have this program started already for 2011."
