West Orange, NJ – February 22, 2017 – Lincoln Technical Institute (NASDAQ: LINC), a national leader in specialized automotive training, is proud to announce it will be an associate sponsor of the No. 5 Arrow Electronics Honda driven by James Hinchcliffe for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM) in the 2017 season of the Verizon IndyCar Series competition.
Lincoln Tech's sponsorship of SPM goes far beyond the placement of logos on the car, the driver’s firesuit and team uniforms. The most significant element in Lincoln Tech’s sponsorship program with the Indianapolis-based team is the creation of its groundbreaking Mentor Program. Lincoln Tech will be carefully selecting one student and an instructor for each of the six races occurring between April 9 and June 10 who will become completely immersed within the SPM team. They will be provided with full pit and garage access, have the opportunity to meet James Hinchcliffe, attend team meetings and be a part of the team during the entire race weekend. Read More
