Team Penske renews PPG partnership

The longstanding relationship between Team Penske and PPG began back in 1984 and, with shared philosophies making it stronger year-by-year, it’s now one of the most enduring collaborations in all of motorsport.

Today, PPG not only supplies refinish coatings for Penske Corporation’s racing operations, it also provides them for the company’s truck leasing and automotive collision repair subsidiaries. In a recent announcement, the two organisations once again formally renewed their partnership which includes PPG sponsoring Team Penske’s No. 2 Chevrolet, featuring the colourful new PPG livery unveiled in 2021. The car will be driven by two-time NTT Indycar Series champion, Josef Newgarden, in eight races this season, says Roger Penske, Founder and Chairman, Penske Corporation.

“For nearly 40 years, PPG and Team Penske have teamed up on the track to ensure our race cars not only look incredible with PPG paints, coatings and specialty materials, our partnership also helps us maintain the highest standards of performance. The collaboration between PPG and Team Penske represents one of the longest partnerships in motorsports and we look forward to building on that success together in the future.”

Over the years, the partnership has proven to be a great fit for both organisations, according to Bill Shaw, PPG Director, Strategic Sales, Automotive Refinish. “Team Penske, with Josef Newgarden behind the wheel, is a perfect match for PPG’s advanced capabilities and our shared commitment to success. We’re honoured to continue our support of the team as it drives the No. 2 PPG Chevrolet across the finish line.”

Former Indycar Series Champion in 2017 and 2019, Newgarden is looking forward to the challenges and possibilities of the 2022 season. “I am excited about the upcoming Indycar Series season and once again representing PPG on our No. 2 Chevrolet for Team Penske. The PPG car is one of the coolest-looking cars in the paddock and is always a fan favourite. I can’t wait to get the season started and to show off the No. 2 PPG Chevrolet’s incredible profile.”
