After adorning the winning Indianapolis 500 car last year, Ruoff Home Mortgage Company has decided to return to the Verizon IndyCar Series as a primary sponsor. This time, though, they’ll have a different driver.
The company will sponsor the No. 98 Honda driven by Marco Andretti in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series. The mortgage company partnered with Andretti Autosport to sponsor Takuma Sato’s winning Indy effort.
Andretti will carry the Ruoff Home Mortgage Company livery for the first race of the season, the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Pete on March 11, and the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 29th.
“Being affiliated with the Andretti name again, particularly on Marco’s car, aligns us with the best name in racing,” said Mark Music, president and CEO of Ruoff Home Mortgage. “Speed and precision are just two tenets that are synonymous with Andretti and with Ruoff.”
“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,” Michael Andretti added. “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.”
