The partnership includes entitlement sponsorship of the Gallagher Grand Prix NTT INDYCAR SERIES event on Saturday, July 30, part of the historic Brickyard tripleheader road racing weekend on NBC that includes races for the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series. In addition, Gallagher will sponsor a Team Penske entry at two upcoming NTT INDYCAR SERIES events.
“It is exciting that a global brand like Gallagher recognizes the opportunities to grow as a partner with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Team Penske, aligning with our goals and our vision,” said Roger Penske. “We know that Gallagher shares many of the core values that are important across our Penske Entertainment and Team Penske motorsports properties. Gallagher plans to take full advantage of our partnership to not only showcase their brand, but provide a special, one-of-a-kind experience through motorsports.”
Gallagher also will become the branded partner of the all-new Gallagher Pavilion in Pagoda Plaza at IMS, which hosts countless hospitality events throughout the year, including during the action-packed Month of May. Gallagher also will have additional signage at the track during the Indianapolis 500 and other IMS race events.
