Viva Motorsports and Fronius USA Weld a Partnership

No. 55 Viva Auto Group Chevrolet Preview – Jamie Dick

Lilly’s Diabetes 250 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway

When Jamie Dick and his Viva Auto Group Chevrolet hit the track in Indianapolis, they will be sporting a new look. The logo of Fronius USA will be featured on the lower quarter panels of the No. 55 Camaro. Viva Motorsports will be using the newly released Fronius AccuPocket welder for the 2014 season. Battery powered, high-performance welding equipment is a natural fit for the racetrack. “We’re excited to sponsor this amazing team,” says Stephanie Gibson of Fronius USA. “Our goal is simply to provide them with the very best welding tools to assist them in their continued success.” Additional Fronius products are being utilized at the Viva Motorsports shop and by fabrication partner, Michalski’s Speed Factory. Continued support is provided by Viva Auto Group,, and Viva Powersports.

car with froniusJamie’s Thoughts: “I am extremely excited to race in Indy. This is one of the tracks on the bucket list for any racecar driver. I have visited IMS as a spectator and you can feel the history when you walk through the tunnel, into the infield. I can’t wait to go back as a driver. This is an exciting weekend for Viva Motorsports with Fronius USA on our lower quarter panels for the first time.”
