Dr Pepper Extends Andretti Autosport Sponsorship

October 20, 2013

The Dr Pepper Snapple Group has extended its relationship with Andretti Autosport for next season.

The DPS-Andretti Autosport relationship enters its eighth season in 2014. In previous years, Marco Andretti has driven Indy cars highlighting Venom Energy Drink, Dr Pepper, Dr Pepper TEN and RC Cola.

“Marco and Andretti Autosport have been great ambassadors of our brands over the years, and we are pleased to be partnering with them for another exciting IndyCar season,” said Jim Trebilcock, executive vice president of marketing for DPS. “Our brands and IndyCar both have extraordinary and passionate fans, and we’re looking forward to working with Marco and his team to drive excitement and build on that passion.”

“Dr Pepper Snapple’s products are among the most well-loved brands on the market, and they carry great appeal with our fans,” said Marco Andretti, Driver, No. 25 Car. “We’re excited to be teaming up with them once again next season. I feel we have been getting closer to a championship title and an Indy 500 win, and I wouldn’t want to win it with anyone more with the Dr Pepper Snapple family and with my dad. I feel like I have a lot of unfinished business and a lot of good results coming our way.” 

In addition to touting its brands on his No. 25 car, Andretti has worked with DPS on one of its key philanthropic initiatives, serving as honorary chairman of DPS’s of its 2013 United Way campaign. Themed “Drive Home Giving,” the campaign raised nearly $2.2 million for United Way agencies.
