XPEL Expands Sponsorship of Josef Newgarden

XPEL will sponsor Josef Newgarden in three races in the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season, Team Penske announced April 7.

The company first teamed up with Penske and Newgarden last year in two events. This time, it will be on board for the Texas Motor Speedway doubleheader on May 1-2 as well as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on August 14. XPEL will also be an associate sponsor throughout the year.

“We are proud to see our partnership with XPEL continue to grow as they build on their INDYCAR presence,” Roger Penske said in a team release. “XPEL can help reach its business goals by connecting with fans of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, and Josef has been a great representative for the company on and off the track. We look forward to continued success with XPEL and the No. 2 Dallara/Chevrolet team this season.”

Newgarden earned four victories and six podiums last year, coming up just short on winning back-to-back championships.

“I was a customer of XPEL even before they became a partner on the No. 2 Chevrolet at Team Penske,” said Newgarden. “They are a first-class company with top-notch products, and their support of Team Penske has been amazing. We will certainly be working hard to deliver a win for them in their home state at the XPEL 375.”

The Texas events air Saturday and Sunday, May 1-2 on NBCSN. XPEL is the title sponsor of Sunday’s race.
