MILWAUKEE (AP) – Andretti Sports Marketing announced Wednesday it has signed ABC Supply Co. Inc. as title sponsor of the IndyCar Series race at the Milwaukee Mile, which will run on Aug. 17 next season.
ABC Supply signed a two-year sponsorship agreement with the Andretti group for Milwaukee IndyFest at the Wisconsin State Fair Park.
Andretti revived IndyCar at the Milwaukee Mile in 2012 when the race was in danger of falling off the schedule. But the event lacked a title sponsor and Michael Andretti said he could not keep promoting the race without financial backing.
The backing from ABC Supply, a building supplies company, ensures Milwaukee remains on the IndyCar calendar another two seasons.
Andretti also said Indy Lights and the Pro Mazda Championship will run during the Aug. 16-17 event.
