NFP Continues Sponsorship of Juncos Racing for the 103rd Running of the Indy 500
Ongoing partnership with Juncos reflects commitment to NFP’s family of employee and client racing fans
NEW YORK – May 22, 2019 – NFP, a leading insurance broker and consultant that provides property and casualty, corporate benefits, retirement, and individual solutions, is continuing its sponsorship of Juncos Racing’s No. 32 car, driven by Kyle Kaiser, for the 2019 Indianapolis 500. The “greatest spectacle in racing” will take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 26, 2019.
NFP first partnered with Juncos Racing last year at the 102nd Running of the Indy 500 when Kyle Kaiser entered the No. 32 Juncos Racing car as a rookie. Earlier this year, the partnership between Juncos Racing and NFP continued at the INDYCAR Classic at the Circuit of the Americas on Kyle Kaiser’s No. 32 NTT IndyCar Series entry, reinforcing NFP’s dedication to uniting employees, clients and racing fans through a shared passion of racing.
Just as competitive racing requires split-second decision making to assess risk and capitalize on opportunities, NFP, an industry leader in property and casualty insurance, applies a similar analytics-driven, hyper-focused approach for its sports and entertainment clientele to safeguard their most important assets. The same spirit of collaboration, teamwork, determination and humility epitomizes the shared values of both organizations, propelling Juncos’s momentum going into the big racing weekend.
The Juncos team’s collective perseverance and resilience was on full display following a crash during a practice session last week. The team demonstrated inspirational unity and focused determination to get Kyle and the No. 32 car back on the track. Through an incredible effort by the Juncos team, Kyle Kaiser secured the final spot on the grid of 33 in a dramatic final attempt during Sunday’s qualifying. NFP applauds these extraordinary efforts in the face of adversity, and the incredible displays of sportsmanship from fans, other teams within the Indy circuit and vendors that jumped in to help.
"We’re delighted to continue our strong partnership with Juncos Racing and Kyle Kaiser for the Indy 500," said Chairman and CEO of NFP, Doug Hammond. "Just as NFP is passionate about going the extra mile for our employees and clients, Juncos is passionate about going above and beyond to succeed on the sport’s biggest stage. We wish Kyle and the entire Juncos team all the best at the Brickyard on May 26."
"Since our relationship began in 2018, NFP has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to our partnership — beginning with last year’s Indy 500, to this year’s Circuit of the Americas and now the 103rd Running of the Indy 500," said Juncos team owner, Ricardo Juncos. "To say the last couple of weeks have been a test of our resilience would be an understatement. Being able to rely on partners like NFP means the world to us at Juncos Racing. We have seen firsthand NFP’s exceptional culture, commitment to employees and clients, and determination to continuously challenge the boundaries of what’s possible. It’s partners like NFP that have helped to drive our mutual success."
The 103rd running of the Indy 500 begins May 26 at 12:45 p.m. ET live on NBC.
