ECR Utilizes REGO-FIX Toolholding in Conjunction with Hurco CNC Machines
(INDIANAPOLIS) May 16, 2024 – Ed Carpenter Racing announced today a new partnership with REGO-FIX, a Swiss manufacturer of highly precise tool clamping systems. With North American headquarters in nearby Whitestown, Indiana, REGO-FIX will provide premium toolholding systems to ECR. The addition of REGO-FIX will continue to elevate the team’s in-house machine shop, which features two new CNC machines from Hurco Companies, Inc.

REGO-FIX is an international family-owned and -operated company in its second generation. From the Whitestown location, REGO-FIX supplies high-precision metalworking tooling products, service and support to manufacturers in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The company features six product lines, each offering optimal fit and accuracy for the customer. ECR utilizes REGO-FIX toolholders with CNC machines provided by Hurco, also an Indianapolis-based company. REGO-FIX has been named to the Best Places to Work in Indiana list by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce for five consecutive years. 

Tim Broyles, President of Ed Carpenter Racing, stated, “We are excited to form this partnership with REGO-FIX. Speed, precision and reliability are key in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and the REGO-FIX system meets all our needs. We know we can rely on REGO-FIX for the accuracy and repeatability required in our fast-paced industry.”

ECR is led by Ed Carpenter, the only individual who handles both the responsibility of driving the racecar and owning his own team. The team is in its 13th season of NTT INDYCAR SERIES competition and fields two full-time entries, the Nos. 20 and 21. Carpenter, an Indianapolis native, races the No. 20 Chevrolet during the oval events while reigning INDY NXT champion Christian Rasmussen competes in the road and street course events. Rinus VeeKay is the longest-tenured full-time driver in ECR’s history and remains behind the wheel of the No. 21 for a fifth consecutive year. Carpenter, Rasmussen and VeeKay will all be entered in this month’s Indianapolis 500 as the team expands to a three-car lineup.

Practice for the Indianapolis 500 continues with on-track activity scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET today and 12-6 p.m. tomorrow. Attention will then shift to qualifications, which will take place on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19. Two more practice sessions will follow on Monday, May 20 and Friday, May 24. All on-track sessions will be shown live on NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock.
