motogpAAA Hoosier Motor Club today finalized a three-year deal with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, making AAA Hoosier Insurance a primary sponsor of the inaugural Red Bull Indianapolis GP MotoGP event on Sept. 14 at the famed Brickyard. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

AAA signed on as the Official Auto Club, the Official Travel Agency and the Official Auto Insurance Company of the Indianapolis 500 in December 2005. In March 2007, AAA Hoosier Motor Club signed IRL driver Sarah Fisher to a three-year contract that made her the official spokesperson for AAA Hoosier Insurance.

“Involvement with the Red Bull Indianapolis GP provides us with yet another forum to stress the importance of practicing safe driving habits to both AAA members and non-members alike,” said Gary Michelson, AAA Hoosier Motor Club senior vice president.

The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will be the 14th of 18 races on the 2008 MotoGP schedule.

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
