Andretti Autosport announced on Friday that Ruoff Home Mortgage has returned and will be the primary sponsor for the No. 98 Andretti-Herta Autosport Honda entry for two Verizon IndyCar Series events this upcoming season.
Marco Andretti will carry the sponsor’s blue, green and white colors at the season opener on the streets of St. Petersburg and in July at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
The return comes after Takuma Sato (now with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing) drove the sponsor into Victory Lane in last year’s Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
Mark Music, president and CEO of Ruoff Home Mortgage, extended his gratification in continuing the partnership.
“Being affiliated with the Andretti name again, particularly on Marco’s car, aligns us with the best name in racing. Speed and precision are just two tenets that are synonymous with Andretti and with Ruoff,” said Music.
Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti added: “Since first joining the team in May of last year, our partnership and friendship with Mark and the Ruoff Home Mortgage family has really grown,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “We’re thrilled to continue our success with Marco at St. Petersburg and Mid-Ohio, I think we’ll be spending time together again in victory lane soon.”
