SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Arrow McLaren SP driver Patricio O’Ward will partner with Topo Chico Mineral Water as a personal sponsor for the NTT IndyCar Series season.
O’Ward’s relationship with Topo Chico Mineral Water has been reignited after first working together in 2016 in the Pro Mazda Championship and the Formula 4 NACAM Championship. The company was also a personal sponsor of O’Ward during the 2017 IMSA Prototype Challenge season and during O’Ward’s 2018 IndyCar debut at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway.
“I’m really happy to have Topo Chico Mineral Water come on board for the 2021 IndyCar season,” said O’Ward. “This isn’t the first time we’ve worked together and I’m grateful for their support in the past during Pro Mazda, Formula 4, and in some of my prototype racing. It’s very cool to see them graduate into the big cars now and I’m looking forward to getting some great results with them just like we did a few years ago. I’m looking forward to working with them this year and hopefully having the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet getting us on the top step of the podium multiple times this season.”
Together, O’Ward and Topo Chico Mineral Water have won more than 20 races, including the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
O’Ward will sport the famous Topo Chico Mineral Water logo on the very top portion of his helmet, which will be featured via the onboard camera of the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet. The logo will also be seen on O’Ward’s driver suit sleeves.
“There is a long relationship between Pato and Topo Chico Mineral Water, we have won many races together and this year will not be the exception,” said Topo Chico Mineral Water Vice President and General Manager Gerardo Galvan. “It is very exciting to remember Pato O’Ward crossing the Indianapolis Motor Speedway yard of bricks in first place while driving Topo Chico Mineral Water’s Pro Mazda car back in 2016. We both have grown and there is no doubt that we will continue to be successful, I hope to see those Pato celebrations many times filling the spectators with Topo Chico’s bubbles after his triumphs this year.”
