Futaba is the major sponsor on Eddie Lawson's (former Superbike champion)
Indy Car. He is only somewhat competitive so far, but Futaba is getting
MAJOR advertising on ABC every other Sunday on the Indy races. Check it
out!!

Futaba has been on a few others too, tho to a lesser degree. Team Losi (RC
car stuff) was a major sponsor of another IndyCar a few years ago.

I think the division of Futaba that is sponsoring Lawson is their
automobile mufflers division--same company, different division.

In fact, the Futaba IRL car came very close to winning the Indy 500 this year
(it came in second).  I believe thaat they have a car in both the IRL and the
IndyCar (CART) racing series.

Futaba makes far more money in the automobile business than it does in
the hobby business.  The sponsorship money does come from both sides
of the business though.  Mostly from the auto supplier side.
