Relay’s Bold Branding to be Featured on the No. 26 Honda for Andretti Autosport in 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series Championship
The bold colors of the new Relay brand will zoom to the start at the 102nd Indianapolis 500 on the No. 26 Andretti Autosport machine of Zach Veach.
Relay, a new direct-to-consumer brand to be promoted and administered under Group One Thousand One, incents and rewards financial discipline through planned spending, so people can plan smart and spend happy.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Zach’s car feature Relay at the Indy 500 this year,” said Dan Towriss, CEO, Group One Thousand One. “Like us, Zach believes that through empowerment and hard work anyone can conquer obstacles. Much like Andretti Autosport and Zach Veach, who relentlessly seek constant improvements, we will be launching Relay to empower and reward consumers for being better planners and smarter spenders.”
“Relay will reward planning ahead for everyday expenses,” said Andres Barragan, Chief Experience Officer, Group One Thousand One. “Like racing, where every tenth-of-a-second matters, we know that every dollar counts when it comes to smart saving and smart spending. And, who doesn’t like to be rewarded with awesome cash-back?”
“We’re proud to have Group One Thousand One’s continued partnership in the upcoming Indy 500,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “With Zach behind the wheel and a fresh new Relay livery for such a historic racing event, the No. 26 car and Zach are well positioned to make a lasting impression on fans of IndyCar and the U.S. racing community this summer.”
Veach and his Relay car will take the Indianapolis 500 green flag Sunday, May 27, along with teammates Alexander Rossi (2016 Indy 500 Champion, No. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda), Ryan Hunter-Reay (2014 Indy 500 Champion, No. 28 DHL Honda), Marco Andretti (No. 98 U.S. Concrete / Curb Honda), Stefan Wilson (No. 25 Driven2SaveLives Honda) and Carlos Munoz (No. 29 Ruoff Home Mortgage Honda).
