“Serving as the primary sponsor of Klipsch brand ambassador Josef Newgarden during Indianapolis’ inaugural Grand Prix will be a legendary moment for our company,” Klipsch CEO Paul Jacobs said. “Our relationship with the SFHR team has given us a direct link to the sport and its fans for which our headquarter city of Indianapolis is most known. We look forward to the upcoming race, as well as the continuation and growth of our partnership.”
Said Sarah Fisher, co-owner of SFHR: “Bringing Klipsch as the primary sponsor to the inaugural Grand Prix will be fantastic, especially with its headquarters here and the excitement around that particular event. We are thankful for their increased involvement and know both SFHR and Klipsch will share the benefits of this great partnership in Indianapolis!”
Klipsch will use Newgarden’s image on a full-size advertisement at the Indianapolis International Airport, creating increased exposure for the company’s premium products to fans flying to Central Indiana for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the 98th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 25.
