James “Sulli” Sullivan, co-owner Vasser Sullivan Racing:
“Two things are certain about IndyCar fans; they need to get their hair cut and they want as much IndyCar action as they can get. What a special partnership this is, as Sport Clips brings them both! We are collectively invested in one another’s success and looking forward to another season of bringing the No. 18 Sport Clips Indy car to the fans!”
Gordon Logan, founder and chairman of Sport Clips:
“Sport Clips is proud to renew our sponsorship with the Dale Coyne Vasser Sullivan team. Our Indy tradition goes back to 2006, and we’re excited about Ed representing us this year. We’re looking forward to getting back on the track and back in the action this year with Ed and the No. 18 car!”
Ed Jones, driver No. 18 Dale Coyne Vasser Sullivan Honda:
“I cannot be happier to now be a part of the Sport Clips family and have the opportunity to represent their franchisees across the country. It’s an honor to be driving for Sport Clips and exposing our IndyCar fans to Sport Clips stores and what they’re all about. I’ll be headed to Sport Clips for a cut just before the season opener at Barber!”
