Novo Nordisk and the Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) have inked a multi-year extension of their partnership, renewing Novo Nordisk as the primary sponsor of the No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing entry, driven by Charlie Kimball in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Kimball, 29, from Camarillo, California, is the first and only licensed driver with diabetes in the history of INDYCAR to win a race at the top level of the series. Novo Nordisk has been the title sponsor of Kimball in his Indy car since December 2010.
The new agreement begins with the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series, making this the seventh consecutive year of partnership between Novo Nordisk and Kimball. The company sponsored Kimball for two years in the Indy Lights Series and then joined with CGRT to form Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing.
