Companies, Inc., has finalized a sponsorship agreement with Sarah Fisher
Hartman Racing (SFHR) for the balance of the 2013 IZOD® IndyCar® Series season.
As part of the agreement,
Hurco installed a TMX8i slant-bed CNC lathe and a VMX42i CNC 3-axis mill at the
team’s machine shop located at the new SFHR facility in Speedway, Ind. As a
sponsor, the Hurco logo is featured on the #67 car driven by Josef Newgarden and
Hurco has VIP access to the team’s race facilities that they will use to give
customers behind-the-scenes track experiences that are priceless.
“Actually, the sponsorship
decision we made with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing is due in large part to the
success we’ve had with another IndyCar team out of Indianapolis. Our experience
with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing during the last three years has been
outstanding and our customers continually have told us how much they appreciate
the track experience and hospitality. We’re excited to expand our involvement
in racing with SFHR and we are honored they will be using our CNC machines to
make precision parts,” said Greg Volovic, President of Hurco.
The state-of-the-art machine
shop at the SFHR facility will give the team more control over their
engineering projects and provide the manufacturing autonomy that is vital in
the competitive world of IndyCar.
“Engaging a product sponsor
like Hurco within our team only allows us to grow to that next level,” SFHR
co-owner Sarah Fisher said. “Having the capabilities that
their machines bring us, gives us the opportunity to even further expand on
some of the engineering projects that are on our wish list. That being said,
Hurco is such a household brand name when it comes to their industry, that to
bring them into our family of sponsors further adds value to the type of brands
that we house here.”
