Argent sponsors car #24 driver, Danica Patrick, who is participating in the Grand Prix.
“We are very pleased to sponsor another exciting Argent Mortgage Toyota Atlantic race and to back one of the brightest young female drivers in the country, Danica Patrick,” said Wayne Lee, president of Argent Mortgage Company. “Our affiliation with the Denver Grand Prix is a perfect fit for Argent. Team work, determination and performance under pressure are integral to the racing world, and are complementary traits that help build trust and efficiency between Argent Mortgage and the mortgage brokers we serve.”
