NAPA Remains with Alexander Rossi through Belle Isle Dual in Detroit

INDIANAPOLIS (June 2, 2016) – The Indianapolis 500 championship combination of Alexander Rossi and NAPA AUTO PARTS will remain intact for this weekend’s Verizon IndyCar Series race on Detroit’s Belle Isle. The double-header weekend will see the newly crowned champion again behind the wheel of the No. 98 NAPA AUTO PARTS / Curb Honda.

Tip Tollison, President of NAPA Balkamp stated, “The entire NAPA family is extremely happy with the incredible performance of Alexander Rossi and the entire Andretti Autosport/Bryan Herta Team. With the NAPA AUTO PARTS Car winning the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 it only makes sense to continue to race the NAPA colors in Detroit.”

“NAPA joined us just in time for the historic 100th Indy 500 and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with being able to provide them the win,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “It’s great to see the partnership expand into a sponsorship for Alexander in Detroit and we hope to continue conversations and grow into an even larger relationship.”

The Belle Isle Dual in Detroit can be found Saturday and Sunday live on ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET with timing and scoring provided via racecontrol.indycar.com.
