Outgoing Firestone Racing Exec Dir Al Speyer in a statement said, “Our agreement to move forward together is a manifestation of the business value we both realize from this partnership. We are proud to continue our tradition of exceptional support for the IndyCar Series. One of our future aims is to help grow interest, so we look forward to welcoming a new generation of fans to the sport while at the same time energizing the existing loyal fan base.” Firestone will retain entitlement rights to the IndyCar Lights Series in '13. That deal is due to end after the season. The two parties are in discussions about whether or not to extend it.
