HVM Racing Adds Key Personnel for Continued Growth
Team Continues Strong Impact in First Season of IndyCar Series
Indianapolis, Ind. (June 26, 2008) -- HVM Racing continues its commitment to be one of the premier teams on the IRL IndyCar circuit. Doing so, the team announces the restructure and appointment of several key positions. Kevin Lee, a long time key figure at HVM Racing, has been appointed to Vice President of Operations, Ali Gursoy has been added as Vice President of Marketing and full-service marketing agency, Breaking Limits, has been acquired to lead its public and media relations efforts.
These additions confirm the long-term commitment by HVM Racing to the Indy Racing League and its vision to be one of the premier teams in the IndyCar Series. HVM Racing currently fields the No. 33 Honda-Dallara entry driven by E.J. Viso.
"These moves are a strong statement about HVM Racing, our commitment to the Series and the direction we are taking," stated team owner Keith Wiggins. "We are committed to growing our team in this new arena, as we did in the previous one. This restructure and additions will immediately help us build a better presence in the IndyCar Series while maintaining our focus of improving performance on the track."
HVM Racing is currently in its first season in the IRL IndyCar Series. The team has already earned three top-10 finishes and a fourth-place finish on the streets of St. Petersburg (Fla.) earlier this season. E.J. Viso is currently 15th in driver points, only 16 points out of the 10th position.
"We've been satisfied with our progress in a very short time," added Wiggins. "But, by no means are we content. We are going to continue to grow off the track and maintain high expectations on the track. This is our next step for growth."
