DairyBusiness Sponsored Indy Car 77 Qualifies for Indianapolis 500

On Sunday May 21, Indy Car driver Jay Howard qualified for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500. Howard placed 20th (start position 7th row), which drew cheers from the crowd for this Team One Cure driver. In addition, Jay posted the fastest lap on the fourth day of practice at Indianapolis. As most in the dairy industry know, DairyBusiness is a partner with the Tony Stewart Foundation and Team One Cure and a sponsor of Indy car 77, driven by Jay Howard.

DairyBusiness and HolsteinWorld first took note of 3-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart’s efforts with One Cure several months ago. Stewart, well known for his philanthropic efforts benefiting animals and children, formed Team One Cure to increase awareness of comparative oncology and raise funds to find cures for cancer in both people and pets. Cancer affects all creatures and treatment breakthroughs come through collaboration between scientists and doctors who are working with both people and animals. This approach is known as comparative oncology. It is a forward-thinking and aggressive approach to fighting this disease.

“Most of us at DairyBusiness, several folks I know and are friends in the industry, and probably most people in general are touched by cancer. We saw this as a way to deliver an important message to our audience.”, explained Joel Hastings, Editor and Publisher of DairyBusiness. Hastings said, “There are fantastic advances being made through comparative oncology and people need to know about it.”

DairyBusiness will continue to partner and support Tony Stewart and The Tony Stewart Foundation with the Team One Cure effort as part of their ongoing publishing operations. The incredible performance by the Team One Cure driver Jay Howard to date has the entire DairyBusiness staff excited, and on pins and needles, awaiting next week’s Indianapolis 500 race. So, if you watch the race next Sunday May 28, cheer on Jay Howard in car number 77. He is truly driving for a purpose.
