INDIANAPOLIS, IN (May 23, 2024) – Ed Carpenter Racing (ECR) and RiskOn International have joined forces to introduce a unique deployment of “AI” for race fans at Carb Day for the 108th Running of the Indianapolis 500.

RiskOn International is the parent company of ECR partners askROI, GuyCare, and BitNile.com. RiskOn International is known for its investments in disruptive technologies and is taking AI to the next level at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The primary sponsor of Rinus VeeKay’s No. 21 Chevrolet entry, askROI, an AI-driven platform engineered to provide instant data insights based on the customer’s unique data, is deploying a different kind of AI at the famed 2.5-mile oval: “Arute Intelligence.”

Jack Arute, the legendary Indy 500 pit reporter, sports broadcaster, and author, is a walking data center of racing knowledge. This year marks his 54th Indy 500 and he will be available outside of the ECR garages in the famed Gasoline Alley on Friday, May 24 from 9-11 a.m. ET and 1-3 p.m. ET. Fans can ask Arute any racing or Indy 500 related question in person or by texting AI to 31798.

CEO of RiskOn International, Joe Spaziano, commented, “AI is transforming businesses globally, but there is not enough computing power to contain all of Jack’s stories and knowledge of the Indy 500 and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We are excited to deploy the Speedway’s original AI, Arute Intelligence.”

Jack Arute added, “I’m excited to return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and be part of my 54th Indianapolis 500. I am excited to work with askROI and Joe Spaziano! And I’m pretty sure I’m less expensive to run than their massive data centers as I’m powered by caffeine and nicotine.”
