While many NASCAR teams are still desperately seeking sponsorship, it seems like Team Penske is announcing a new partnership nearly every day.
Having already announced the Würth Group will serve as a full-season associate sponsor of the No. 2 Ford Fusion and that AAA will continue its partnership agreement to sponsor the No. 22 stock car in the Cup Series, Team Penske turned its attention to the XFINITY Series where its reached an agreement with Fitzgerald Glider Kits to sponsor its championship-winning No. 22 Ford Mustang.
While the No. 22 car has been piloted by several drivers this year, including Brad Keselowski, Sam Hornish Jr., and Ryan Blaney, it’s still leading the series standings when it comes to owner’s points. If truth be told, by winning the XFINITY Series title this year, it will mark Team Penske’s 4th team championship in five years.
With this type of championship pedigree, it might not surprise many race fans that Fitzgerald Glider Kits has signed on as the primary sponsor of the No. 22 Ford Mustang for 16 races next year and will also serve as an associate sponsor throughout the 2018 XFINITY Series season.
“Team Penske continues to grow its relationship with Fitzgerald Glider Kits and we welcome the company’s increased role as a sponsor with the No. 22 Ford Mustang team in 2018,” Roger Penske said, according to NASCAR.com. “We work closely with Fitzgerald in our trucking business and the company has certainly made the most of its partnership with our race teams across different platforms since it joined Team Penske in 2016. We look to continue to build the Fitzgerald Glider Kits brand as we move to the next level next season.”
