ABC Supply is leaving as the primary sponsor for A.J. Foyt Enterprises after 15 years, but will "continue to be involved in the Indianapolis 500," according to Robin Miller of RACER.com. Foyt said that the decision "will not affect his team's participation" in the NTT IndyCar Series next year. Foyt has had two full-time entries sponsored by ABC Supply in recent years, and he said that it "will be business as usual next year as new sponsorships are sought." He said, "We've got three or four potential sponsors lined up and we're probably going to keep running two cars." Miller noted ABC Supply began its partnership with Foyt in '05, though wins "have been fleeting during the 15-year relationship." Tony Kanaan and Matheus Leist, Foyt's two drivers, sit at No. 15 and No. 19, respectively, in the IndyCar points race with just one event remaining (RACER.com, 9/1).
