IndyCar driver Christian Lundgaard unveils car at Honda Indy Toronto 2022

HUB International Ltd. has become the primary sponsor for the number 30 Rahal Letterman Lanigan (RLL) Racing car driven by Christian Lundgaard and they unveiled the new livery today at the Honda Indy Toronto. Larry Lineker, HUB Executive Vice President began the presentation in the Enercare Centre on July 13th and introduced Christian who will run the full 2022 IndyCar Season. The insurance brokerage and financial services company also insures half the IndyCar roster and has sponsored the number 15 RLL car for several years.

"The orchestrated intensity of how a pit-stop comes together is the perfect metaphor for how HUB supports its customers throughout North America, and in Canada where we are the largest brokerage in the country. Much like our insurance and risk advisors, the drivers are essential – however, there are dozens of people behind the scenes acting as unsung heroes working together to make the driver's results and our customers outcomes a success," said Larry Lineker, HUB Executive Vice President and a member of HUB's Executive Management Team. "HUB has a strong affinity for RLL and their 'team-first' mantra, as well as the unwavering commitment to success that Bobby Rahal and his drivers exemplify. We are thrilled to be involved with RLL and Christian, a driver full of potential who we are all excited to work with and continue watching as his career takes off."

"I never would have guessed there would be so many parallels between an insurance brokerage and racing," said Lundgaard. "After getting to know the HUB team and learning more about their values and how they operate their business through teamwork and educated risk taking (with protection as the priority), it's not too far off from how I prepare and work with my team each time I get behind the wheel. I feel very proud to drive the No. 30 HUB car in Toronto in such a monumental race."

Honda Indy Toronto runs from July 15 to 17, 2022 with IndyCar practices beginning Friday, qualifications on Saturday and the IndyCar race is on Sunday at 3:30 pm. Christian Lundgaard is an IndyCar rookie - first driving in the 2021 Indy 500 where he qualified fourth and finished 12th in the race. This was my first chance to see the new cars as IndyCar has adopted the aeroscreen for additional driver protection.
