Officials with Sarah Fisher Racing today announced they signed a sponsorship deal with IUPUI, which will aid the team’s effort to qualify for and race in this month’s Indianapolis 500.

“The group at IUPUI has become great friends of mine over the years,” said Fisher, who will attempt to qualify for her seventh Indianapolis 500 this weekend. “I have talked with students many times and at one time, I too was a student at IUPUI. Education has always played an important role in my life and I hope through our association, others can share in that importance.”

“Sarah is an excellent role model for IUPUI students,” said IUPUI Vice Chancellor Amy Conrad Warner. “She is passionate about her chosen career and is defying the odds.  Starting her own race team shows the entrepreneurial spirit that we want all of our students to possess.”

Fisher was one of the first students in a joint program between Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, IUPUI and Butler University. Fisher has been a helping hand with the School of Engineering and Technology as well as several units on campus and has made personal appearances to meet and talk with undergraduate students. 

The sponsorship is a collaborative effort between the IU School of Liberal Arts, the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology and the IUPUI campus administration. Financial terms of the deal were not released, but motorsports marketers estimated it in the low to mid five-figure range.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
