INDIANAPOLIS -- Provimi Veal Corp. today announced it will continue its long-time association with Arie Luyendyk by becoming an associate sponsor of Treadway-Hubbard Racing's No. 5 Meijer G Force-Chevrolet for the May 26 Indianapolis 500. Provimi also will be an associate sponsor of Arie Luyendyk Jr. in the new IRL Infiniti Pro Series, which begins July 7 at Kansas Speedway.

Provimi has supported Luyendyk for most of his career, starting in the 1983 Super Vee series, and a championship in that class in 1984. The relationship continued when Luyendyk advanced into Indy Cars in 1985 -- when he was both the Indianapolis 500 and CART Rookie of the Year -- and through his first Indy victory in 1990. Provimi rejoined Luyendyk in time for his second Indy triumph in 1997 and has been with him ever since. In addition, Provimi was a sponsor of Luyendyk Jr. in the Formula Ford 2000 series, and now moves up with him to the IRL and the Infiniti Pro Series.

"Without the support of Provimi Veal I would not have achieved this level of success," said Luyendyk. "The company has not only been with me as a sponsor, but I've also had a long and close friendship with Provimi founder Aat Groenevelt. It's great to renew this relationship for the Indy 500 and also to have Provimi with Arie Jr. as he takes the next step in his own racing career."
