Their involvement in open-wheel racing the past four years has been terrific for their business and also for the teams and drivers they have supported. I know the Allied people very well, and we are honored to have them as our partner for a great weekend of racing.”


Headquartered in East Rutherford, N.J., with more than 180 branches in 32 states, the company’s Columbus, Ohio, division will host guests from the Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Kentucky markets at the scenic 2.258-mile, 13-turn road course.
