Firestone Indy Lights race in Iowa lands sponsor
Sukup Manufacturing Co., will serve as the title sponsor of Iowa Speedway's Firestone Indy Lights race on Saturday, June 25.

The Sukup 100 will be held prior to the Iowa Corn Indy 250 IZOD IndyCar race, as part of an action-packed weekend fueled by Iowa's agricultural industry.

"Sponsoring the Sukup 100 Firestone Indy Lights race provides a great opportunity to connect with our current and potential customers as we join together to cheer our favorite drivers — and the ethanol industry — on to victory lane," said Sukup Manufacturing Co., CFO Steve Sukup.

Sukup Manufacturing Co., is a family-owned grain storage, drying and handling equipment manufacturer located in Sheffield, Iowa. Sukup has been providing top-quality products to agricultural producers since 1963.

"Agriculture is big business to the state of Iowa, and Iowa Speedway is no exception," said Chuck Spicer, vice president of Sales and Marketing at Iowa Speedway. "We are delighted to welcome Sukup Manufacturing Co., as a new official partner."

Sukup believes the partnership is a win-win for Iowa's corn growers, ethanol industry and racing fans.

"IndyCar and Iowa Speedway are leaving the naysayers in the dust and showing the world what ethanol can do. The use of ethanol lessens our dependence on foreign oil and supports our neighbors — Iowa's corn growers," said Sukup. "It also makes for an exciting race series."
