DECATUR, IN – March 15, 2023 – American Coach®, a luxury Class A diesel motorhome brand that’s part of REV Recreation Group, Inc., is proud to announce the continuation of its partnership with internationally renowned race car driver Hélio Castroneves. As he has for the past several years, Castroneves will serve as an American Coach brand ambassador for 2023 and 2024, sharing stories from the road behind the wheel of his American Eagle® coach. Castroneves will use his custom American Eagle coach throughout 2024 to make select appearances for American Coach, engage in social media posts, and share his American Coach experience in brand videos.
Castroneves has a long-standing relationship with REV Group that began in 2015.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Hélio,” said Don Gephart, Marketing Manager, American Coach. “Hélio exemplifies everything we stand for at American Coach – a relentless pursuit of excellence, commitment to quality and a drive to succeed. He truly serves as an incredible ambassador for our brand and the luxury RV lifestyle. We are excited to join him as he continues his pursuit of a fifth Indy 500 championship.”
“When I’m at the track, my American Coach is my home,” says Castroneves. “It’s where I relax before races and where my family makes their home base when they come to the track. My American Eagle is designed just the way I like it, and it has everything I need to prepare for race day in comfort, style and luxury.”
Castroneves worked closely with the American Coach design team to fully customize the luxury RV to meet his specific needs. On the exterior, Castroneves’ American Eagle features a custom black and pink paint finish to match the colors of his racing team. Inside, there’s teak-style cabinetry, special-order quartz countertops, ultra-comfortable custom bunk beds, each with their own TV, and many other upgraded amenities.
A native of Brazil, Castroneves is one of only four drivers to have won the Indianapolis 500 four times and is also a four-time runner up in the IndyCar Series drivers’ championship. He also competes in select IMSA SportsCar championship races, and recently won the 24 Hours of Daytona with MeyerShank Racing. His positive personality and fan-favorite victory celebrations have made him one of the most popular drivers in IndyCar.
