    IIRC Sheldon Kinser drove the Genesee car in 1979 and 1980 for Leader Cards. He did not make the Indy 500 in 80 after banging the wall in practice. The cars were painted metallic maroon with yellow numbers, I think.

      That is correct (#24 Watsons) - I'd forgotten about those. Not sure how the Leader Cards sponsorship came about, but Hammond's was because he/Gohr was a Genessee distributor.

        What beer did the Whittington's have on their sidepods. Wait! Scratch that, it was cocaine sponsorship. (this excludes the 1980 Sun System sponsorship)
        eliminate the rear wings, and let the racing get back to the racers

          I wonder if some of these were one offs for Indy... like Jim Beam??
          Jim Beam has been on Wheldon's car all season.

            Don't forget Foster's.

            1991 or 1992 I believe.

            Part/full sponorship with the Porsche/Quaker State team...I think.

                    Garza had the Schlitz car.

                    Old Milwaukee was Patrick's primary sponsor for Ganassi in '84 and an associate in '83.

                    The Little Kings Hoffman entry was also from '84 (but was a March 83C) for Gehlhausen at Indy. Does this brand still exist?

                    Kapsreiter was Daly's Indy sponsor. But who actually owned the team (the #29 Lola and the #48 purchased from Foyt), and does this brand still exist?
                    Yes: http://www.harmer.at/index.php?set_l...psreiter_intro

                        There's a fair number of beer-powered vehicles in my Indy car set...

                        There will be a lot more eventually as I've just scratched the surface of what's in my archives.

                        All my sets......

                        And at some point there will even be a root beer powered snap or two of Loquasto.
