Harding Steinbrenner Racing announced that GESS International will serve as the primary sponsor for the No. 88 Honda entry driven by NTT IndyCar Series rookie Colton Herta. The partnership will include this weekend’s INDYCAR Grand Prix, the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge and a “variety of other races” throughout 2019.
GESS signed on as a primary sponsor for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park and also served as an associate sponsor for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
“We are very happy to have GESS International join us as our primary sponsor for a multi-race deal,” said team co-owner George Michael Steinbrenner IV.
“The renewable energy and biogas industries are becoming more and more prevalent in our society as people become aware of the implications of climate change. We are glad that GESS is looking to INDYCAR and HSR to help expand their platform.”
“It’s great to have GESS International back on the car for the INDYCAR Grand Prix, the 103rd Indianapolis 500 and beyond,” said Colton Herta. “And I’m very excited for clean and renewable biogas to be represented in the NTT IndyCar Series. It’s very important to keep our planet healthy and safe, and this is a company that truly believes in that as well.”
GESS previously signed on as a primary sponsor for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park and also served as an associate sponsor for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
“Having GESS International back on our car for the INDYCAR Grand Prix, the 103nd Indianapolis 500 and more is very exciting,” said team co-owner Mike Harding.
“The GESS organization is making major leaps in helping improve the earth with clean energy, and we’re honored to be a part of it all. I’m looking forward to our partnership with GESS International and continuing to bring great results on the track.”
Shaun Lee, CEO of GESS International, also offered his excitement in the expanded endeavor.
“GESS International is the largest and fastest growing biogas company,” said Lee.
“And we are thrilled to be working with the fastest driver and growing team of Colton Herta and Harding Steinbrenner Racing for the INDYCAR Grand Prix, the 103nd Indianapolis 500 and the remainder of the season. We are ready to connect NTT IndyCar Series fans to the benefits of biogas for years to come.”
