IndyCar - Grime Boss To Sponsor Mike Conway At Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 12, 2011: Andretti Autosport announced today that Grime Boss, a brand of heavy-duty hand-cleaning wipes manufactured by Nice-Pak, will serve as the primary sponsor for the No. 27 IZOD IndyCar Series entry, driven by Mike Conway, at the IZOD INDYCAR World Championships on Oct. 16 in Las Vegas.
Nice-Pak, founded in 1957, is the global leader in the design, manufacturing, marketing and distribution of premium quality branded and private label wet wipe products. Headquartered in Orangeburg, NY, Nice-Pak has a track record of introducing innovative products for personal care, baby, health, hand sanitizing, beauty and household applications.
"I'm pleased to have Grime Boss on the car for Vegas this weekend," said Conway. "They've been a great new partner since Indy, and I know Team Grime Boss will be working hard for a podium finish to end the season on a high note."
Grime Boss and Nice-Pak's affiliation with Andretti Autosport originated earlier in the season in support of the team's salute to America's armed forces, which began with the 100th anniversary edition of the Indianapolis 500 and continued through the remainder of the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series season. Each of the team's IndyCar entries features a specific unit within a branch of the U.S. military and prominently displays an associated military emblem just above the numbers on the tub of the race car.
"We are grateful for the support of Grime Boss this season," said John Lopes, Andretti Autosport Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "They were a big part of our tribute to the troops in May and throughout the season, and we are pleased they can join us as the primary sponsor of Mike's car this weekend. Nice-Pak's high-quality, innovative and durable products fit well within our team, as we must rely on superior and dependable equipment to take us to victory circle. The INDYCAR World Championships in Las Vegas will be an exciting, action-packed week and we're pleased to have Grime Boss along for the fun."
