Chip Ganassi Racing announced on Tuesday that Swedish hot chocolate brand Huski Chocolate will serve as primary sponsor to Marcus Ericsson’s No.8 Homda for the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season.
Huski Chocolate are already involved in motorsport through their sponsorship of the McLaren Formula One team and speaking about their new partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing, Stanten Barrett, CEO of Huski Chocolate Americas said:
This partnership is a great fit for our entire company. We have watched Marcus in Formula 1 and last year’s transition into INDYCAR. Marcus has great potential and now he can capitalize on his talents by teaming up with Chip Ganassi Racing in INDYCAR. This partnership with my friend Chip and CGR, a 12-time INDYCAR Champion team, is a critical and valuable platform to reach a strong racing fan base in North and South America. As Huski Chocolate continues expanding into important markets for our B2B and B2C products, CGR and Marcus will continue to pave the way for success on and off the track for Huski Chocolate. We can’t wait to get the season started in St. Petersburg with the Huski Chocolate Honda on the grid.”
Doug Duchardt, COO of Chip Ganassi Racing said:
The Huski partnership is great news for CGR and the No. 8 team, and completes our lineup several months in advance of the 2020 season. We’re looking forward to having Huski Chocolate join the team and helping them build their brand in the United States.”
