In time for the iconic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, Royal Purple, a manufacturer of premium synthetic lubricants and performance chemicals, has announced its sponsorship of the Ed Carpenter Racing Verizon IndyCar Series team for the 2016 race season.
Beginning on May 29, the Royal Purple logo will adorn the engine cover of the Ed Carpenter Racing No. 20 Chevrolet, driven by famed IndyCar racer Ed Carpenter. Carpenter has made headlines throughout his racing career, including being the first driver to compete in both an Indy Lights and IndyCar event in a single weekend, and for capturing consecutive pole positions at the Indy 500 in 2013 and 2014.
In celebration of its partnership with Ed Carpenter Racing, Royal Purple is launching the 2016 Royal Purple Indy 500 Sweepstakes, offering race fans the opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind Royal Purple racing helmet signed by Ed Carpenter. From May 5 to June 1, fans can enter the sweepstakes by completing the online entry form at RoyalPurple.com. Following the close of the sweepstakes’ entry period, one winner will be chosen at random to receive the grand prize.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Ed Carpenter Racing for what’s shaping up to be the most exciting running yet of the Indy 500,” said Debby Neubauer, Royal Purple vice president of marketing. “Ed Carpenter is one of the most skilled drivers in the world, and we look forward to helping him outperform in ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.’ We’re also proud to share our excitement with race fans through our Indy 500 sweepstakes.”
