"To win a race as prestigious and rigorous as the Indy 500, we need to make sure our crew can find all the tools they need in the garage to ensure peak performance of our Indy cars," said A.J. Foyt, the first four-time winner of the Indianapolis 500® race and owner of A.J. Foyt Racing. "The Gladiator® GarageWorks system takes the checkered flag when it comes to organization and we're thrilled to have their products back in our garage this year."
Gladiator brand has provided A.J. Foyt Racing with a variety of work benches, flooring, and storage solutions - all suitable for consumers looking to organize their garage. In addition, A.J. Foyt Racing will have the Chillerator® Garage Refrigerator, which keeps drinks cool and matches the tread-plate design of the GearBoxes, GearDrawers, Tall GearBox Lockers and Tile Flooring in the garage.
"In a speed sport like racing, every second counts. This also applies to our consumers who are strapped for time between work, family and personal obligations," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "Gladiator brand systems help professional racing teams and everyday garage owners to take charge and organize their space to save time by knowing their belongings are at their fingertips always."
The Gladiator brand-clad A.J. Foyt Racing garages will be on display at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the course of the Indianapolis 500 beginning May 16.
