WESTFIELD INSURANCE JOINS TRUESPORTS, INC. AS PRESENTING SPONSOR OF THE
HONDA 200 AT MID-OHIO

 

 

DUBLIN, Ohio (June 5, 2007) - TrueSports, Incorporated has announced a
three-year partnership with Ohio-based Westfield Insurance that will begin
with the insurance company serving as presenting sponsor of the IndyCar
Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 22, 2007.

 

The partnership is reflected in the titling of Round 12 of the 2007 IndyCar
Series: The Honda 200 at Mid-Ohio presented by Westfield Insurance.
Westfield Insurance has also been named the official insurance company of
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

 

"Our partnership with TrueSports, Inc. aligns two world class organizations,
one in insurance and one in motorsports," said Roger McManus, president of
Westfield Insurance.  "We are capitalizing on the fast growing interest in
motorsports and an innovative opportunity presented by TrueSports, Inc. to
advance our Westfield brand strategy."

 

Westfield is an insurance, banking and related financial services group of
businesses and is one of the largest non-public companies in Ohio, employing
over 1,900 people across the state.  They are the largest employer in Medina
County, a short 50 miles from the Lexington, Ohio road course.  

 

"We're honored to welcome Westfield Insurance," said Michelle Trueman
Gajoch, president of TrueSports, Inc.  "It is a significant moment when a
local company embraces what we have to offer.  A presenting sponsorship of a
national-based event like The Honda 200 at Mid-Ohio will provide Westfield
Insurance with considerable exposure in their very own backyard.  This is a
proud moment for our community." 

 

The Honda 200 at Mid-Ohio presented by Westfield Insurance will be the first
open-wheel race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course since 2003, and the first
visit to Ohio for the IndyCar Series.  ABC Sports will broadcast live during
this 85-lap race, providing valuable national exposure for the Westfield
Center, Ohio company and its independent agency partners.

permanent road-racing circuit with two primary configurations: a 2.4-mile,
15-turn, and a 2.25-mile, 13-turn circuit.  The park-like, 330-acre complex
in Lexington, Ohio also features an amateur motocross venue.  Located 60
miles north of Columbus and 75 miles south of Cleveland near Mansfield, the
track has been called the most competitive in the U.S. and annually hosts a
diversity of locally, regionally and nationally sanctioned racing events for
amateur, club and professional riders and drivers.
