Shell-Pennzoil Extends Penske Sponsorship

Shell Oil Products US and Pennzoil-Quaker State Company will continue their relationship with Team Penske, the organization announced on Thursday, May 26.

“We are proud of the global business relationship with Shell and Pennzoil that extends across our Penske companies,” team owner Roger Penske said in a team release. “Over the years, we have experienced great success together on the track and the relationship has evolved to include our transportation business operations all over the world. Our teams are also working with Shell and Pennzoil on product development and multiple sustainability initiatives to help keep us focused on the future.”

Shell-Pennzoil re-signed to be the primary sponsor for Penske’s NASCAR Cup Series driver Joey Logano. The deal consists of at least 30 races.

“Shell-Pennzoil has become one of the iconic sponsors within our sport and I’m proud of what we have accomplished together so far,” Logano said. “Since taking over the No. 22 at Team Penske, the last 10 years we have been able to celebrate in Victory Lane with many of their employees and customers over 25 times including a Cup Championship, Daytona 500 and two Pennzoil 400 wins, which have been some of the highlights so far in my racing career. The best part is, it’s an authentic relationship for me that fits my brand on track as a race car driver and supports what I represent off the track as well. It’s a privilege to be associated with Shell-Pennzoil and excited to see their continued commitment to our sport.”

Since joining Penske in 2013, Logano won 2018 Cup championship, won the prestigious 2015 Daytona 500 and accrued 26 victories behind the wheel of the No. 22. Overall in his Cup career, Logano has 28 wins, 142 top fives and 246 top 10 finishes.

Shell and Pennzoil will also be primary sponsors for two of Penske’s entries in the Indianapolis 500. Two-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Josef Newgarden will drive the No. 2 Shell V-Power Chevrolet and Scott McLaughlin will drive the No. 3 Pennzoil Chevy.

Newgarden will start the Indianapolis 500 in 14th place and McLaughlin will start in 26th place. The duo will compete in the race on Sunday, May 29 at 12:45 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by NBC.
