INDIANPOLIS, IN (May 23, 2018) – Foyt/Byrd/Hollinger/Belardi which is entering a car in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 with James Davison is thrilled to announce its partnership with Accurate Metal Products (AMP) for the Indianapolis 500.
When CEO Woody Alverson is asked about the new partnership he had this to say, “As an amateur SCCA racer myself, I have always been passionate about racing, and I am keenly aware that talent alone can only take you so far, even at the club racing level. As I learned of this team’s desire to go up against the biggest names in IndyCar racing I was delighted to have the opportunity to join the effort. As we saw in qualifying, while this team may not have the resources of the big name teams, it seems to be “lapping the field” in terms of teamwork and desire. All the hard work, coupled with the fantastic and courageous driving of James, has this team carrying tremendous momentum heading into the biggest race in the world. We couldn’t be more proud to have our AMP logo on the car. Go James Davison!”
Brian Belardi was very excited to partner up with AMP. “It’s exciting to be joining forces with another fellow company from the Wisconsin area. We are glad they jumped on board for the Indianapolis 500! I have been friends with Woody Alverson for years, so it’s great to have a friend joining me in this crazy experience.”
