Avis will take an active role in promoting both series through e-mail campaigns, displays at select airports, and other large-scale promotions, company officials said. It also will offer a national sweepstakes program, which will provide a VIP experience for fans during an IRL race weekend.

Avis operates 2,200 car rental locations worldwide.

Included in the partnership is a discounted car rental rate that will be offered to members of IndyCar Nation, the official fan club of the open-wheel race series.•
