The Indianapolis 500 is built on tradition, and Curb/Agajanian has been right in the mix of the storied events of the 500-mile race by sponsoring and entering cars in the field for the past 40 years, including being the co-owner of Dan Wheldon’s winning car in last year’s centennial Indianapolis 500.
For 2012’s “Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” Curb/Agajanian will join forces with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) as an associate sponsor for Bryan Clauson in the No. 39 Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing with Curb Agajanian/ Dallara/Honda/Firestone car.
Clauson and Curb/Agajanian have a history of their own, and Curb/Agajanian was the co-owner and sponsor for Bryan Clauson in 2011 when he won the overall USAC National Championship which included midget, sprint and Silver Crown cars.
As a multi-time USAC national champion, Clauson has over 50 victories.
“It’s really cool to bring another company to our Indy 500 program that is highly involved with my USAC programs,” Clauson said. “With Curb/Agajanian’s rich background in racing, I really hope we can bring them to victory lane this May.”
Curb/Agajanian has been a long-time supporter of USAC in addition to IndyCar racing and jumped at the chance to be part of Clauson’s ascent from USAC to the pinnacle of motorsports with the Indianapolis 500.
“It’s exciting to see Bryan have the opportunity to race in the Indianapolis 500 with the excellent team of Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing,” Mike Curb, founder and chairman of Curb Records, said. “Both Sarah and Bryan exemplify the history of Indianapolis champions coming from dirt tracks and ovals in America and ultimately racing in the world’s greatest auto race.”
Sarah Fisher, co-owner of SFHR, welcomes the addition of Curb/Agajanian to Clauson’s program as they have been instrumental to his past racing programs as well as multiple Indianapolis 500 programs for various teams and drivers in the past.
“We are so happy to be part of the tradition of the Curb/Agajanian association with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Sarah Fisher said. “Bryan having support from them on both the USAC and IndyCar programs helps promote his background as he takes the next steps of his career.”
