NO. 25 TO CARRY SNAPPLE BRAND PRIMARY SPONSORSHIP
Based in York, Pennsylvania, United Fiber & Data offers a complete suite of all-fiber networking and broadband solutions and also served as a major associate sponsor of the No. 25 machine of Marco Andretti for the 2013 season.
The 2012 IndyCar Champion will return to the No. 28 machine to signify the 28 million people living with cancer worldwide. Throughout the year, fans will have the opportunity to help Ryan fight cancer through his charitable work with Racing for Cancer, an organization he helped co-found, and its event, The Yellow Party, with locations and event dates to be announced. The yellow and red livery seen on Hunter-Reay’s car in seasons past will have little changes made as DHL returns as its primary sponsor for the third year of his four-year career with Andretti Autosport.
Making his full-time debut in the IndyCar Series, Colombian Carlos Munoz will tote a livery customized around new primary sponsor Cinsay, an Austin, Texas-based company that is a leader in next-generation social video commerce technology. This fourth IndyCar entry for Andretti Autosport will once again be run as a joint effort between Andretti Autosport and HVM Racing.
Cinsay, the creator of next generation social eCommerce, viewer interactive, video-based platform for any individual or size business, utilizes SaaS based technology to enable everyone to sell products, services, capture donations and generate leads all inside the patented Smart Store technology.
The eCommerce company, named one of the Forbes Top 100 Most Promising Companies (2012), formed a relationship in March with 34 Solutions, a company co-chaired by All American football legend Herschel Walker. Under the 34 Commerce banner, the relationship names 34 Solutions as the licensed reseller of Cinsay’s Smart Store technology and provides payment gateway services to process the Smart Store platform transactions.
The white and Cinsay-green Honda-powered Indy car will carry the No. 34 to pay honor to former footballer Walker’s role in the program and to help carry on the tradition of excellence tied to the Heisman Trophy winner’s iconic jersey number.
Also seen on the No. 34 Honda: AndrettiTV.com — a new website, coming soon, where fans will be able to subscribe to exclusive behind-the-scenes, live video access to Andretti Autosport’s headquarters, purchase official team merchandise and more.
United Fiber & Data again expands its role within the team as an major associate sponsor on the No. 28 DHL Honda.
