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. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
