|U.S. based food corporation Butterball has extended its relationship with Andretti Autosport for a fourth straight year, continuing as an associate sponsor of the No. 28 DHL Honda driven by 2012 Verizon IndyCar Series champion and 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Hunter-Reay.
“Butterball has been a great partner since 2014 and I’m really excited to have them on board again this year,” said Hunter-Reay. “They were with me when I won the Indianapolis 500, which was a really special moment for everyone involved. Hopefully we can bring them back into victory lane this year, not only at Indy, but throughout the season as well.”
For 2017, the partnership will expand as Butterball branding will be placed on all four Andretti Autosport full-time entries in the Verizon IndyCar Series. The Butterball logo will be featured just below the front suspension on the Honda-powered cars of Marco Andretti, Alexander Rossi and Takuma Sato and known as the “Butterball Wishbone.”
“We are thrilled to have Butterball back for a fourth consecutive season,” said Michael Andretti, CEO and chairman of Andretti Autosport. “The partnership began with Hunter-Reay and now it has expanded to all four of our cars, which means they have become even more of a key member of the Andretti family.”
