PPG Continues Partnership with Team Penske for 2014 IndyCar Series

PPG will be featured on Team Penske's IndyCar entries driven by Helio Castroneves and Juan Pablo Montoya in upcoming races.

PPG Industries’ automotive refinish business has announced it will continue its longstanding support of Team Penske in the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series. The season began March 30 and extends through Aug. 30 with 18 races in 15 locations across North America. PPG will be featured on Team Penske’s IndyCar entries driven by Helio Castroneves and Juan Pablo Montoya in upcoming races:

  • April 27, Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Ala.
  • July 6, Pocono Raceway, Long Pond, Pa.
  • July 12, Iowa Speedway, Newton, Iowa
  • July 19-20, Streets of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario
  • Aug. 17, The Milwaukee Mile, West Allis, Wis.

Helio Castroneves is coming off one of the most productive seasons of his career. He  finished second in the 2013 IndyCar title chase, led all drivers with 16 top-10 finishes and was the only driver running at the finish of all 19 races.

Juan Pablo Montoya makes his return to the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2014. The former CART Series champion and 2000 Indy 500 victor made winning transitions to Formula One and NASCAR and returns to his IndyCar roots with Team Penske this season.

PPG Automotive Refinish is Penske Corporation’s exclusive supplier of coatings for its racing, truck leasing and automotive collision repair subsidiaries and facilities. Team Penske races three cars in the Verizon IndyCar Series, all of which are painted with PPG Deltron products. In addition, Team Penske’s NASCAR entries use PPG Envirobase High Performance waterborne coatings. PPG-sponsored Team Penske cars prominently feature the PPG Automotive Refinish and PPG corporate logos.

PPG has enjoyed a longstanding business relationship with Team Penske and its parent, Penske Corporation, since PPG’s sponsorship of the PPG Cup from 1979 to 1999.
