The AMR IndyCar safety team has been an industry leader in motorsports safety and has been instrumental in continuously improving standards within the series.
Also included in the deal, the All Clear Foundation will become the official charity of IndyCar and IMS, the foundation supports all first responders around the USA.
An allocation of tickets will be made available to the foundation to all of the NTT IndyCar races, including a significant number for the IndyCar Grand Prix.

“We’re also thrilled to extend our relationship with the AMR IndyCar Safety Team, a group whose knowledge, preparedness and capabilities are second to none.”
“We are proud to sponsor the GMR Grand Prix which is part of the iconic ‘month of May’ leading up to the Indy 500, and to work with IndyCar to dedicate this season to raise awareness about the vital work all first responders do every day to impact patients’ lives and the stresses responders face with that responsibility,” added Randy Owen, President and CEO of Global Medical Response.
“Our AMR business is a national EMS leader with expertise in many aspects of emergency services, both air and ground and in event medical services for the racing industry. We are pleased to be expanding and furthering our involvement with this agreement.
