Würth Extends Partnership on No. 2 Ford in Cup Series

MOORESVILLE, NC (October 23, 2014) – Team Penske has reached a multi-year extension agreement with the Würth Group to continue as a key partner in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS). Under the terms of the new agreement, Würth will be a primary sponsor of the No. 2 Team Penske Ford Fusion for three 2015 NSCS races and Würth will once again serve as an associate sponsor for the balance of the season on the No. 2 Ford.
After initially joining forces for the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series season, Würth and Team Penske took their partnership to a new level this year with Würth stepping up as a primary sponsor of the No. 2 Ford driven by 2012 NSCS champion Brad Keselowski for select races. A leading supplier of high-quality automotive and industrial parts, cabinet supplies and fasteners that includes more than 40,000 customers across the nation, The Würth Group will continue to support Keselowski and the No. 2 Team Penske Ford team moving forward.
BK“We are proud of the relationship that Team Penske has built with Würth over the last three seasons,” said Roger Penske. “Würth has experienced great success with our teams and we will work with them to build on our accomplishments with Brad and the No. 2 Ford.”
The Würth Group first became involved in NASCAR racing through its partnership with Team Penske, but the company has been involved in motorsports since 1982, serving as a partner in both the DTM and Formula One racing series.
“Our business has enjoyed the association with Team Penske,” said Robert Stolz, CEO of Würth Line North America. “From our events at the race track to our products used in the team’s state-of-the-art racing facility – Würth has been truly integrated with Team Penske and our partnership has exceeded expectations. We look forward to growing our business and the relationship even further over the coming years.”
The No. 2 Würth Ford Fusion has produced a pair of top-two finishes among four starts in 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition and Keselowski continues the pursuit of his second series championship in the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup as he leads the series with six victories this season.
“It has been great to have Würth on board the No. 2 Ford this year,” said Keselowski. “One of the things that stands out about our relationship with Würth is that not only do I see their name and colors on our cars – I see their products being put to good use in our race shop. I think that says a lot about our relationship and they have been a big part of our success this season.”
