INDIANAPOLIS – MotoGator, a new automotive products brand launching this year during the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, has reached a partnership with Hulman Motorsports to become the official pit stop partner of IndyCar and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

As part of the agreement, MotoGator will become the title sponsor of the annual pit stop contest on Miller Lite Carb Day this Friday. The MotoGator Pit Stop Challenge at the Indy 500, which starts at 2 p.m. Friday, determines the fastest pit crew in the Indianapolis 500 and NTT IndyCar Series.

“The NTT IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge continue to be a powerful platform to promote brands and businesses, and we’re pleased that MotoGator has selected both to launch their innovative new product line,” said Mark Miles, president and CEO of Hulman & Company, the parent company of INDYCAR and IMS. “The annual Indy 500 Pit Stop Challenge is one of the most popular events of the Month of May, and we’re pleased MotoGator will launch its brand with us in such exciting fashion.”

Following in the tradition of many famous automotive brands first introduced to consumers through pro motorsports, the MotoGator official launch is taking place during the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday. MotoGator is the primary sponsor of the No. 77 MotoGator Team Stange with Arrow SPM Honda driven by Oriol Servia in this year’s race.
