St. Louis transportation company to sponsor Rahal’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 entry

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (July 31, 2023) – Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced today that Hogan Transportation, a privately-held transportation company founded in 1918 and owned by the third-generation Hogan family that has been involved with the team since its inception in late 1991, will be the primary sponsor of Graham Rahal’s entry for the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway, August 26-27.

What is known today as Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing was brought to life as Rahal Hogan Racing, when Bobby Rahal and Carl Hogan Sr. formed the race team in late 1991. The first win came in the second race of the 1992 season in Phoenix and the team won the championship later that year on the strength of four wins and three poles. Hogan Transportation has been involved with the team at various times over the years and has been the team’s Official Truck Leasing partner since 2017.

The Hogan family made the following statement: “The Hogan family has been involved with Indy car racing off and on for over 40 years. Carl Hogan Sr. was a co-owner with Bobby in Rahal Hogan Racing from 1992-1995 and we’re excited to re-energize the partnership between the Rahal and Hogan families after 30 years. It feels natural for us to be the primary sponsor of Graham’s race car. The Hogan family participated in the first Indy car race in St. Louis in 1997 with Dario Franchitti and again in 1999 with Helio Castroneves. It is exciting to once again see the Hogan name on an Indy car at our home track. It will be even more special to have Graham Rahal as the driver.”

“I’m very pleased to have Hogan Transportation as the primary sponsor on Graham’s car for their home race,” added Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with David Letterman and Mike Lanigan. “Personally, I’ve had a relationship with the Hogan family since 1991 and, of course, they have been involved with the team over the years. Thinking about them being on Graham’s race car as the primary sponsor brings back so many fond memories and I can’t help but think about how much Carl Sr. would enjoy this. I have always enjoyed spending time with Brian, David and Carl Jr. They are good guys, a great family and great company and we are all looking forward to watching Graham in the Hogan car.”
