  • Past 500 sponsors

    I was looking at the 500 Photo Gallery for 1978 today and noticed a sponsor on a few cars called Tibon? What was/is Tibon? Sounds like a gas station brand to me.

    I looked in Google Photo. Strange, they show pictures of steaks. T-bone steaks.

      I believe it was the Tibon Plating Company. They did (and maybe still do) chrome plating. Car was owned by Carl Gehlhausen.

        This reminds me of some videos doctorindy posted some time ago featuring, amongst other things, the Genesee Beer Wagon sponsored Steve Chassey car (1985). In name it reminded me of Hinch's 2020 '500 sponsor, Genesys.

        An outstanding video, BTW, particularly if listened to with headphones to hear that NA V8 ROAR! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5WBTCak2jA

          Kinda recent for nostalgia, but a few years ago some of the Andretti cars had "Live" quite prominently on them. I wondered what that was. Curiously the word was written in the same font as the similarity named rock band. Certainly a band wouldn't sponsor Indycars...would they?

            You mean, like Aerosmith?

              I like Live anyway.
