Honda has been a fixture in North American open-wheel racing since 1994, and has played an active role in the growth of the IndyCar Series – as both a Manufacturers’ Championship competitor and single engine supplier – since joining the series in 2003.
For over 100 years, Firestone has led the pack with its racetrack legacy, starting with a 1911 Indianapolis 500 win by a car running Firestone tires. Since then, Firestone-equipped cars have displayed exemplary performance on and off the track. In 1900, Harvey Firestone started the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio, making tires for buggies, wagons and other wheeled transportation and farm equipment common to the era. Since this time, Firestone has continually worked to reduce emissions not only with production footprint, but also with the lifecycle of the products.
