Our History

K&K’s story began in 1948 when Fort Wayne, IN businessman, Nord Krauskopf, found himself in the driver’s seat in the world of stock-car racing. At the time, the only insurance for this high-risk sport consisted of individual racers contributing to a fund that would help cover the costs in the event of an accident. Nord and his wife Teddi Krauskopf embraced this unique opportunity to fill a much-needed void and pitched a plan to create specialized insurance for race car drivers to Lloyd’s of London. And in 1952, K&K Insurance was born. Their dedication to motorsports eventually resulted in winning the Grand National Championship in 1970; the team was led by legendary driver Bobby Isaac and Crew Chief Harry Hyde. And the rest, as they say, is history.
