Hurco Companies Inc. has finalized a sponsorship agreement with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) for the balance of the 2013 IZOD IndyCar series season.

As part of the agreement, Hurco installed a TMX8i slant-bed CNC lathe and a VMX42i CNC three-axis mill at the team’s machine shop located at the new SFHR facility in Speedway, Ind. As a sponsor, the Hurco logo is featured on the #67 car driven by Josef Newgarden, and Hurco has VIP access to the team’s race facilities that they will use to give customers behind-the-scenes track experiences that are priceless.

“Actually, the sponsorship decision we made with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing is due in large part to the success we’ve had with another IndyCar team out of Indianapolis. Our experience with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing during the last 3 years has been outstanding, and our customers continually have told us how much they appreciate the track experience and hospitality. We’re excited to expand our involvement in racing with SFHR, and we are honored they will be using our CNC machines to make precision parts,” says Greg Volovic, president of Hurco.

The machine shop at the SFHR facility will give the team more control over their engineering projects and provide the manufacturing autonomy that is vital in the competitive world of IndyCar.

“Engaging a product sponsor like Hurco within our team only allows us to grow to that next level,” SFHR co-owner Sarah Fisher says. “Having the capabilities that their machines bring us, gives us the opportunity to even further expand on some of the engineering projects that are on our wish list. That being said, Hurco is such a household brand name when it comes to their industry, that to bring them into our family of sponsors further adds value to the type of brands that we house here.”
