Due to an unforeseen business meeting, Randy Bernard, CEO of IndyCar, will not be the keynote speaker of Excelerate Hendricks County’s! luncheon, April 26, noon, at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex, Danville. Replacing Bernard as keynote speaker will be Terry Angstadt, president of IndyCar’s commercial division.

“We understand that business calls and knew that when we got the Ok from Mr. Bernard to speak, there may be the likelihood, close to the racing season, that he would not be available,”  said Rick Myers, publisher of the Hendricks County Business Leader, one of Excelerate Hendricks County’s! host sponsors. “We are thrilled to have Mr. Angstadt speak on the ‘Magic of Marketing’   and know that with his background he will share valuable information on the topic for those who attend.”  The luncheon is free, but space is limited. Call Krista Tevebaugh at 250-1181 for more information.

At IMS, Angstadt led the marketing, licensing, food and beverage, creative services and retail operations for the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, the Brickyard 400 and the United States Grand Prix.
