Chevrolet Signs Extension with IndyCar Series

 

Verizon IndyCar Series
Chevrolet signed an extension of its affiliation as a parts provider with the Verizon IndyCar Series

The Verizon IndyCar Series largely revolves around high speeds and insane acceleration. One factor that makes a major difference is the aerodynamic kits and engines the cars are outfitted with, and Chevrolet recently signed a contract that extended its partnership with the Verizon IndyCar Series as a major parts provider.

Chevrolet’s signing of a contract extension comes at the same time as many other major brands. Honda signed a deal as well; meanwhile, Dallara signed on to continue to be the chassis supplier and Firestone signed on as the tire supplier.

The IndyCar Series plans to revise the rulebook to allow for an all-new chassis designed to bear a much more attractive look. The new chassis will also change air flow, allowing for closer racing.

“It’s another sign of the positive momentum we continue to build as we grow this sport into the next decade,” said Jay Frye, IndyCar president of operations.

While Chevrolet and Honda may be competing automakers, they do share something in common. Both Chevrolet’s director of motorsports and Honda’s president of performance development want to see more automakers join the Verizon IndyCar Series.

Chevrolet’s signing of a multi-year contract solidifies the brand’s involvement in the IndyCar Series for the foreseeable future.

We here at Gjovik Chevrolet are happy to see Chevrolet extending its affiliation with the Indy Car Series!
