INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Spectators and viewers who enjoyed the Indy 500 on Sunday may have noticed a couple new Hino tow and recovery trucks.
Hino launched a deal with Indianapolis Motor Speedway to provide at least seven tow and recovery vehicles. They’ll be used at the track throughout the year, and made their debut at the speedway’s biggest event – the Indy 500 – on Sunday.
“This is the start of a new chapter for Hino in racing,” says Glenn Ellis, vice-president of marketing for Hino Trucks. “Hino Trucks has been a sponsor of Team Penske Indy Racing League race team for the past five years and our newly increased exposure at the speedway is a unique opportunity to demonstrate Hino product capabilities trackside.”
A Hino 268 model conventional chassis with a wrecker body and a Hino 258LP conventional with a six-tonne carrier body are included in the fleet of Hino tow and recovery vehicles.
