“I’m very happy to welcome Liberty Coach, Inc. to the #41 team for the Indy 500,” Kellett said. “We live at the track for two weeks during the month of August. Having one of their world-class motorcoaches to call home for the entire time will really make things easier. They have all the amenities of home, are well designed, and are very spacious.
