Marcus Ericsson has revealed the livery that he will use throughout the 2020 season, his second year in the series. 

The Swede has joined Chip Ganassi Racing following his debut season in 2019, where he drove for Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

Chip Ganassi has linked up with Huski Chocolate, who will be a primary sponsor of the No. 8 car that Ericsson will drive throughout the year.

Huski Chocolate, which is a Swedish company, was a sponsor of McLaren in Formula 1 last year, and its logo was regularly seen on the rear wing of the car.

Ericsson will run with a red and white livery during the year with the Huski Chocolate branding present on the front wing, the rear wing and the side pod of the car. 

Doug Duchardt, COO, Chip Ganassi Racing said: “The Huski partnership is great news for CGR and the No. 8 team, and completes our lineup several months in advance of the 2020 season.

"We’re looking forward to having Huski Chocolate join the team and helping them build their brand in the United States.”

Ericsson picked up one podium finish during his first year in IndyCar, crossing the line in second place at the second race of the weekend in Detroit.

  • I had no idea Huski even existed until they sponsored McLaren, so it goes to show how efficient sponsorship can be. But man they must have some big buck if they can put big stickers on both a McLaren car and even bigger stickers on an Indycar car...

      Maybe they wont sponsor McLaren this year. They also had a one off with Alfa last year, if I remember correctly. I don't think that they are the sole sponsors behind ME's Ganassi drive though. Nice livery, I think.
