Pastor Will Marotti (pictured below) and his new sponsor ZYPPAH will join Schmidt Peterson Motorsports on the No. 7 Honda entry driven by Russia’s Mikhail Aleshin. Marotti first partnered with SPM at the 2016 Indy 500 with the car driven by Oriol Servia.
“We are honored to return to the Brickyard and to team up once again with our good friends at Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports,” Marotti said. “We are equally excited to move over to the No. 7 car to help bolster and support a fast, capable driver like Mikhail Aleshin. It is a great privilege to bring a growing national brand like ZYPPAH into motorsports for the very first time.”
The snoring and sleep apnea prevention device manufacturer will make its IndyCar debut on the No. 7 car beginning this weekend at IMS, and will continue for three additional races to be named after the Indy 500.
“I am very pleased that ZYPPAH has become a part of the history and legacy of Indy Car racing as a sponsor of Marotti Racing,” added company CEO Dr. Jonathan Greenburg.
