Everyone needs to check out this excellent video about IndyCar sponsorship!  Made by Josh Block of Bloomberg News, who started his quest for info about sponsors right here.  I wasn't much help to him, but it goes to show this kind of site is needed and used!  Check it out!  http://www.bloomberg.com/video/how-much-does-it-cost-to-sponsor-an-indy-500-car-e0fLba0vQf6WWEC5l5uk5w.html

2014 Indy 500 Sponsors!

Hey there party people!

Well, I was unable to get garage access to try to get all the signage I was able to get last year.  However, the fantastic Jimmy Gray (@rx8speeddmon) was kind enough to send me a bunch of pictures!  Yay, James!! So here is the list I was able to cobble together!  Note that the big guys (Penske & Ganassi) seem to have the same sponsors as always, so their stuff can be found in the normal tabs or on their website.

So go support the sponsors and thank them for making the 500 possible!

2014-2015 Season

Is it time yet?  Is it time YET?  IS IT TIME YET?

I don't know about you, but I've been wallowing in winter for far too long.  It is time to get this party started!

As usual, I will be pulling info from team sites and adding things as teams/sponsors contact me.  Please feel free to direct anyone to the site who might have more information than what I have here.  I'm always happy to add additional information that comes my way.

As a side note, it is looking like I won't have my bronze badge for the month of May this year.  So, if anyone is interested in sending me pictures of garage signage of sponsors when the time comes, please let me know.  May is a crazy time to try to keep up with sponsors, so I can use any help!

Happy Racing!
Megan

Hey IndyCar fans!

Let's help our favorite sport attract and keep sponsors! 

This site is dedicated to supporting all the sponsors of IndyCar.  Think of it as a yellow pages for IndyCar sponsors.  The tabs at the top are loose categories that the sponsors fall under.  Some sponsors fit in more than one category, so they are in more than one.  For fairness' sake, I went alphabetical within the categories. 

Each company name is a link to their website.  Give them a click!  Companies like increased site traffic.  And if they see you came to their site from this one, they will know you are an IndyCar fan.  If a link is broken, please let me know.

#Follow4Indy is a new campaign by all the IndyCar Twitter community.  On Wednesdays tweet some love for the sponsors that make the commitment to our favorite sport and use the hashtag #Follow4Indy!

I hope you find this site useful and even interesting.  I didn't know what some of these companies were!  It is a fascinating mix.  Enjoy!


Megan (aka Bickelmom)

P.S. I would like to go on record as saying that this list does not constitute a personal endorsement of these companies.  If anyone notices any errors or omissions, please let me know ("contact me" tab above) and I'll fix them as soon as I can. I worked off of the team websites to gather information. If anyone has suggestions or comments, feel free to contact me. But remember, this is a labor of love, so go easy on me. : )
