Indianapolis, IN (July 16 2014) – Andretti Autosport Short Track and The Gorsline Company, the premier insurer of high-risk motorsports insurance, are partnering up for the remainder of the 2014 season.
Based in Rochester, NY John Gorsline, founder and Chairman of The Gorsline Company, has earned an international reputation providing all forms of financial services for his corporate and professional clients. His company specializes in providing racing drivers and team owners creative, custom-designed insurance packages and estate planning strategies.
"We are thrilled to be of help to Jarett Andretti and his racing career. We feel he is definitely a future champion who will follow w in the footsteps of Mario, Aldo and John Andretti to become a legend in motorsports. The Gorsline Company has followed the Andretti family over the years and insured most of the family. We are proud to be friends and a staunch supporter of Jarett."
Third generation driver, Jarett Andretti, is currently running his first full season in both the USAC Silver Crown and Sprint Car series. As a driver, Andretti understands the importance of having a valued insurance company, like The Gorsline Company, to help guide him in the right direction.
"I'm really excited to be involved with The Gorsline Company and more specifically, John Gorsline. After getting hurt last year, it really "opened my eyes" to all that happens outside of the injury," said Andretti. "Having the proper coverage and working with someone that my father has a long history with allows me to focus on my racing, knowing that part is now taken care of."
John Andretti, father of Jarett, has an extensive background working with The Gorsline Company, "I have worked with John Gorsline since 1986 when I was required by BMW to have a disability policy in place. I was young and had no idea of what to do or where to go. John guided me through the beginning and provided coverage throughout my racing career. The best part about this is that John is all about the young drivers and gives back to the sport in time and support."
Andretti races next at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, IN July 17th where he continues to compete in his first Indiana Sprint Week.
