AlFe Heat TreatingAl-Fe Heat Treating marks its seventh year in motorsports with the announcement of its return as a major associate sponsor of AJ Foyt Racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

“The 2017 season looks to be an exciting and challenging one for Foyt Racing and we at Al-Fe Heat Treating wouldn’t miss it for anything,” said Kurt Westman, founder and president of Al-Fe Heat Treating, the largest commercial aluminum heat treating operation in the United States, based in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “New drivers, new cars, the best crews in INDYCAR and the best team owners – we continue to be privileged to be part of the most historical race team in auto sports. A.J. (Foyt, team owner), Larry (Foyt, team president) and the team have made the Al-Fe team friends, made us feel welcome and a part of the INDYCAR experience. They have my many thanks.”

Al-Fe Heat Treating’s foray into motorsports began in 2011 at the Indianapolis 500 and quickly grew to a full-season association with the team. Starting in 2014, Al-Fe Heat Treating sponsored a Foyt entry in the INDYCAR Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. In 2015, the company’s entry competed in the Indianapolis 500. Last year, Al-Fe sponsored the car driven by Alex Tagliani in both the INDYCAR Grand Prix and 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
