The IndyCar motorsport series has agreed a deal for medical services provider Global Medical Response (GMR) to become the title sponsor of the IndyCar Grand Prix, an annual road-course race held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS).

The newly-named GMR Grand Prix will take place from May 8-9, 2020 and act as the fifth race of the IndyCar Series season. GMR has signed a multi-year deal to sponsor the event.

GMR’s ground ambulance business American Medical Response (AMR) has served as the official medical response partner of the Indianapolis 500, IndyCar Grand Prix, Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard and IMS since 2018. These sponsorships will be extended through the new agreement.

As part of the deal, GMR and its AMR business will work with IMS and IndyCar to raise awareness of work performed by first responders across North America. These efforts will also take place during other races at the circuit that are serviced by the AMR safety team, including the annual Nascar event weekend.

The All Clear Foundation also becomes the official charity of IndyCar and IMS, while tickets to all IndyCar races will be made available to the foundation.

The 2020 IndyCar Series season gets underway on March 15 with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
