International insurance brokerage and risk management services firm Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. will partner with Chip Ganassi Racing Team’s No. 8 Chevrolet driven by Max Chilton in a full-season effort in the Verizon IndyCar Series.


Gallagher, headquartered in Itasca, Ill., has operations in 31 countries and offers client-service capabilities in more than 150 countries around the world through a network of correspondent brokers and consultants. This season with CGRT will be the company’s first foray into the world of motorsport partnerships.


Earlier this month Chilton was named driver of the No. 8 entry after making 35 starts in Formula One from 2013-’14 for the Marussia Formula 1 Team. Most recently, he contested a partial season in the Indy Lights Championship with one win, six podiums and 10 top-five finishes.
