Rainguard Water Sealers, a rapidly growing private water sealant and graffiti protection coating company, has signed a three-year agreement with Texas Motor Speedway to become the entitlement sponsor of the annual Verizon IndyCar Series race held in June at the 1.455-mile high-banked oval.
The multiyear deal for “America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race” begins with the night race scheduled for June 10, at the speedway in Fort Worth that has hosted Verizon IndyCar Series races since the track opened in 1997. The Rainguard Water Sealers 600 will be the ninth of 17 races on the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule.
“We extremely pleased to have Texas Motor Speedway and ‘America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race’ serve as the initial sponsorship venture into motorsports and sports in general for Rainguard Water Sealers,” said Eddie Gossage, Texas Motor Speedway president. “We look forward to providing Rainguard with an exceptional first experience as an entitlement sponsor and help the company attain their goals through this sponsorship agreement.”
Founded in 1969 as a manufacturer of architectural grade coatings used in the construction industry, Rainguard is utilizing the sponsorship to enhance the consumer awareness and growth of the company that in 2010 developed a full line of specialty sealer products for the home improvement marketplace. The company specializes in premium sealers, interior and exterior sealers, water protection and exterior stains for a diverse assortment of surfaces that are sold through major distributors such as Home Depot and Walmart, among others.
“I've always believed that Indy racing is a great way to move a company's brand to the next level,” said Claude Florent, Rainguard International president. “That, coupled with the incredible venue at Texas Motor Speedway, made the decision easy.
“We are committed to solidifying Rainguard as a respected national brand of home-improvement sealers and creating effective and safe solutions for every homeowner throughout the nation,” Florent added. “There is no better way than partnering with Indy and Texas Motor Speedway.”
