Marco Andretti’s No. 27 Honda will get a new look for four races this season as United Fiber & Data return to Andretti Autosport. The company announced during the offseason that it was returning to the team as an associate sponsor and will now officially serve as a co-primary sponsor for Verizon IndyCar Series races at Phoenix, Long Beach, Pocono and Boston.
A major sponsor for former Andretti Autosport driver James Hinchcliffe during both the 2013 and 2014 seasons, United Fiber & Data now joins Snapple and hhgregg as official partners for the No. 27 team for this year’s championship campaign.
“We’re really pleased to see United Fiber & Data continue to grow as they return to Indy car racing,” said team owner Michael Andretti. “While the UFD colors were not on the cars in 2015, we’ve remained close friends with a solid partnership. I’d like to thank the entire UFD family for their continued support and look forward to seeing the No. 27 United Fiber & Data / Snapple car on track in Phoenix.”
In addition to their new co-primary role with the No. 27 team, UFD will also continue to serve as an associate sponsor for 2014 Indy 500 champion Ryan Hunter Reay’s No. 28 DHL Honda.
