Companies to promote renewable natural gas at Texas and Pocono Indy races

June 7, 2019. Capstone Turbine Corporation (CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that GESS International and Capstone Turbine will serve as the primary sponsor of the Andretti Autosport No. 27 racing machine at this weekend’s race at Texas Motor Speedway and again in August at the “Tricky Triangle” of Pocono Raceway. The partnership builds off the associate sponsorship across all four Andretti Autosport entries.

   The relationship between the championship-winning team and the green energy services company began during the month of May when the GESS International logo appeared on each of Andretti Autosport’s four Indy cars for the IndyCar Grand Prix and its five-car line up at the 103rd edition of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. GESS International offers solutions in the field of “green” energy and energy efficiency while specializing in the production of renewable natural gas (RNG).

   “GESS International is excited to expand its partnership with Capstone Turbine Corporation and Andretti Autosport with Alexander Rossi, the driver of the No. 27 Indy car,” said Shaun Lee, President of GESS International. “As leaders in the renewable natural gas (RNG) industry, GESS looks to promote the use of RNG Biogas. GESS continues to raise awareness of carbon negative emissions and green energy.”

   “We are very excited about this partnership opportunity with Andretti Autosport in support of Alexander Rossi as Capstone looks to further the brand awareness of its high-efficiency, low-emission energy solutions,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone. “Despite saving customers millions of dollars annually and helping save the planet by reducing tons of carbon, it’s still surprising how many people are still not aware of Capstone’s innovative, clean and green microturbine products. I’m confident that our sponsorship with the world-renowned Andretti Autosport will help us raise awareness of our clean energy technology,” added Mr. Jamison.

   “We are thrilled to grow our partnership with GESS International and welcome Capstone to Andretti,” said Andretti Autosport Chief Executive Officer Michael Andretti. “Our partnership was first highlighted with Alexander Rossi when he drove to a second-place finish in Indy. We’re happy to welcome GESS back in a larger capacity and look forward to continue growing our on-track success,” concluded Mr. Andretti.

   The green and white No. 27 GESS/Capstone Honda will see the track Thursday for an evening practice session at Texas Motor Speedway. The field of racers will qualify Friday at 6:45 p.m. ET and will start their engines Sunday at 8:40 p.m. for a race under the lights on the 1.5-mile oval. Coverage for both qualifying and the DXC Technology 600 will be available on NBC Sports Network.
