Motorsport team Andretti Autosport have announced a partnership with US Concrete.

The Texas-headquartered company will sponsor the number 98 Andretti Herta Autosport driven by Marco Andretti in six IndyCar Series races in the 2018 season.

Andretti’s car will feature US Concrete colours for the Toyota Grand Prix at Long Beach on 15th April, the IndyCar Grand Prix on 12th May, the Indianapolis 500 on 27th May, the Texas Indy 600 on 9th June, the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway on 19th August, and the season-ending Grand Prix at Sonoma on 16th September.

The deal marks US Concrete’s first partnership with an IndyCar team.

“I’m really happy to welcome US Concrete to the Verizon IndyCar Series and our Andretti family,” said Michael Andretti, chief executive of Andretti Autosport. “US Concrete is a leading brand in its industry, as is the Andretti brand in IndyCar, so we are very excited about this partnership.”

“The legacy and strength of the Andretti team exemplifies the business units that make up the US Concrete family and is an excellent platform to showcase what we offer,” added Andrew Pinkerton, marketing communications manager at US Concrete. “Our partnership with Marco Andretti and Andretti Autosport is very exciting and we look forward to taking this partnership beyond the racetrack and integrating the Andrettis’ winning formula into our business.”
