“I am very proud to have the Curran family and Fleet Cost & Care on board,” said Michael Lanigan, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with 1986 Indy 500 winner and three time Indy car champion Bobby Rahal and former late night host David Letterman. “We have known them for many years and followed their remarkable success in both their crane company and equipment technology systems that is the standard in today’s world markets. We look forward to spending time with Jeff and his clients throughout our race season.”
“Our decision to renew the FCC/RLL sponsorship for 2017 is based on several factors – our love of racing, our customer’s love of racing, and our desire to foster successful industry relationships,” added Fleet Cost & Care President Jeff Curran. “We see this sponsorship as an opportunity to develop strategic partnerships with customers and prospects, and to grow our relationship with the Lanigan team.”
