Today, PPG is the largest supplier of refinish coatings for Penske Corporation’s racing, truck leasing and automotive collision repair subsidiaries. The robust partnership demonstrates the long-term commitment these companies have to each other and their ongoing success.
“Sponsoring Team Penske cars is an honour for PPG and we are very pleased to do it again this year,” said Bill Shaw, PPG Director, Marketing and Strategic Sales, Automotive Refinish. “We love motorsports and we have a solid tie with Penske. It’s only natural to take that relationship to the racetrack and actively support Team Penske. When Penske cars are racing, we are there cheering them on to the chequered flag.”
As well as being an ongoing partner to DJR Team Penske on the local racing scene, PPG will serve as a primary Team Penske sponsor for multiple races throughout the 2019 season, in the NASCAR Cup Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the IndyCar Series.
“We appreciate our long-term partnership with PPG and the investment and commitment the company has with our team,” said Roger Penske. “Team Penske is celebrating 35 years with PPG in 2019, which is our longest-running partnership across all of our motorsports programs. The bond our organisation has with PPG is a testament to all we have achieved together on the race track, and it also demonstrates the mutual value in the marketing and business-to-business opportunities with our companies.”
