Team Penske confirmed on Wednesday that they have renewed their long term partnership with PPG Automotive Refinish.
PPG will act as the primary sponsor to one of Team Penske’s cars in the Verizon IndyCar Series and as an associate sponsor to the rest of the cars including Juan Pablo Montoya 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil next year.
Team owner Roger Penske commented by saying:
As one of the Team Penske’s longest and most trusted partners for more than 30 years, PPG has been a big part of our success both on and off the track.
Verizon IndyCar Series champion Simon Pagenaud carried PPG as primary sponsor during three victories during the 2016 season. Penske went on to say:
Our teams continue to win with PPG and we look forward to building on the success together with our NASCAR and INDYCAR programs in the future.
John Outcalt, PPG vice president of global automotive refinish commented by saying:
We have a very special relationship with Team Penske. “We’ve worked together successfully for years and are proud to be a part of the team’s winning tradition. Team Penske did exceptionally well racing in 2016–Simon Pagenaud and Joey Logano were outstanding—and we’re excited about the prospects for 2017. By extending our partnership into the future, we’re ensuring mutual support for years to come. PPG and Team Penske are in it for the long run.
