INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (May 20, 2021) – AERO Sustainable Paint Technology and fans alike are primed to watch one of its 13 partners kiss the bricks at the Indianapolis 500.

The AERO banner once more will be present on one the most renowned racing grids in the world as it supports Arrow McLaren SP, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, Meyer Shank Racing and A.J. Foyt Racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Arrow McLaren SP has momentum on its side as it enters the weekends with the No.5 and No. 86 Chevrolet’s. Rising star Patricio O’Ward achieved his first IndyCar win this year in the No. 5 at Texas Motor Speedway and is still riding the wave of success headed into this event. Arrow McLaren SP also welcomes two-time Indy 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya to its ranks in the historic No. 86, a nod to the 50th anniversary of McLaren’s 1971 Indy 500 pole starting car.

Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is looking for a back-to-back Indy 500 win with one of its three Honda entries. Two-time Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato kissed the bricks in 2020 in the signature blue and white No. 30; winning the 2021 Indy 500 would make him the first back-to-back winner since Helio Castroneves in 2001-2002. Drivers Santino Ferrucci and Graham Rahal both will battle to lock down their first Indy 500 win, Ferrucci in the No. 45 and Rahal in the No. 15.


Meyer Shank Racing is increasing its chances of standing in victory lane with the debut of the No. 06 piloted by three-time Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves. His Honda machine can be easily spotted in a variation of Meyer Shank Racings eye-catching magenta and black livery.

A.J. Foyt Racing rounds out the pack with the No. 1, No. 4, No. 14 and No. 41 Chevrolet’s. The team will run four cars for the first time, featuring the No. 1 ABC. Supply Co. Chevrolet, a tribute to the team’s first Indy 500 win 60 years ago. The No. 1 will be driven by JR Hildebrand, the No. 4 by Charlie Kimball, the No. 14 by Sebastien Bourdais and the No. 41 by Dalton Kellett.

The Honda and Chevrolet powered beasts will reach well over 200 miles per hour at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. At such high speeds each component of the car is crucial not only for a chance at winning, but also for the safety of the drivers. In recent years IndyCar has advanced its technology to provide the safest vehicles to date.

AERO Sustainable Paint Technology is an additional enhancement employed by teams looking to go one step further. The environmentally friendly paint envelops the car in a protective barrier, boosting aerodynamics with minimal added weight. Because with races coming down to 1/1,000 of a second every inch of the car counts.

The festivities kicked off on May 18 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and will remain full throttle until the fall of the checkered flag. The grid for the event will be set through three qualification sessions, the first of which is on Saturday, May 22 at 12:00 p.m. ET. The teams return to the track Sunday, May 23 for the Last Row shootout at 1:15 p.m. and the Fast 9 shootout at 3:00 p.m.

The green flag falls on the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 at 12:20 p.m. ET, on Sunday, May 30. The race can be viewed live through its entirety on NBC and NBC Sports Gold TrackPass. For schedule details and tickets sales visit
