One Evansville business will have its name seen in big letters this weekend at the Indianapolis 500. Superior Van and Mobility is sponsoring one of the race cars. They'll be joining Indiana-based vehicle manufacturer BraunAbility in sponsoring the number 99 car driven by Townsend Bell. The company's name can be found on the tail of the car.Superior Van and Mobility specializes in driving equipment for people with disabilities. Officials hope its sponsorship in the Indy 500 will draw more company awareness.
"May is Mobility Awareness Month for our industry." said General Manager Jan Jordan. "It just seemed like a great avenue to advertise a little bit and to tell people about us that don't know and aren't aware of what these vehicles do and how they work."
