I still think Showtime should be sponsoring a car in the Indy500, and that filming happens around the Billions teev series.

You could imagine the connection with fans of the show to bring the Axe Capital brand to a team that just happens to win.

There is even an opening in the plot, Axe was refused access to owning an NFL team.. IndyCar could easily replace it.

Especially with the vivid imagery of hot lapping an AMG Benz around a track and ordering 2 of them for his fun...

Just a thought...

I don't see why more brands like that get involved with Indycar, especially the 500. It's on the up and has some of the best drivers competing in it. The extra publicity for both sides would be great.

Cause the price is insane for no guaranteed appearance and frankly near zero national exposure for all but a handful of cars. Last estimate I saw was Juncos was looking for 500k for just the 500, not likely there's a line of sponsors just waiting to burn half a million. Juncos is good at sniffing those opportunities out and they aren't out there it seems. Sounds like we may be one car short without someone stepping in this week.

Could they take the sponsor from a team that doesn't make the top 33? that would be a hell of a deal!

Apparently RM has talked with Juncos and has a few leads for him. I wouldn't be surprised to see them run a bit and try to earn a sponsor with a good showing

This. They're involved (or have been) in so many types of motorsport. A Red Bull Indycar livery would be sweet.

I never followed the IRL but I think Red Bull sponsored Cheever's IRL team, Red Bull Cheever Racing, from 2002-2006.



Red Bull also sponsored Champ Car team. PKV Racing in 2007, Champ Car's final year.

All you folks are shamelessly demonstrating my lack of historical knowledge of the sport... thanks for that!


Those liveries do look nice. Would love to see one on today's car.
