Vision Racing will finally return to the IZOD IndyCar Series at this month's Indianapolis 500 after a five-race hiatus, carrying the primary sponsorship of Fuzzy Zoeller's Premium Vodka on their No. 20 Dallara-Honda.
Ed Carpenter will return to the driver's seat, making his 100th career IndyCar start in the process. The car will be run in conjunction with Panther Racing.
Fuzzy Zoeller's Premium Vodka was launched last year by professional golfer Fuzzy Zoeller, an Indiana native, and the winner of the 1979 Masters and 1984 U.S. Open. Zoeller's vodka distinguishes itself by a filtering process distinct from that of other vodkas, going through crushed volcanic rock and charcoal ten times, according to the product's website. Buoyed by a gold medal awarded by Chicago's International Beverage Testing Institute last year, it is currently available in the midwest, with the intent of national and worldwide launches in the near future.
While the car's livery has not yet been unveiled, preview photos on Facebook show that the car will be midnight black, deviating from last year's day-glo yellow. The team plans on unveiling the paint scheme within the week.
