Before the green flag falls for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Team Penske has announced that AAA and Auto Club will return on Joey Logano’s No. 22 Ford and Würth Group would return on the No. 2 Ford piloted by Brad Keselowski.

The extensions with AAA and Würth Group two days after the organization announced that Miller Lite and Discount Tire would return in 2018.

“Our relationship with AAA and The Auto Club has been an important one that dates back to our years when we owned California Speedway,” said Roger Penske. “We are excited that we are able to continue on with the successful partnership that we have established with such a great group of people and the thousands of members they represent. They have been terrific partners and cornerstones in our success across the board. We look forward to many more winning seasons together into the future.”

AAA and Auto Club will be on the No. 22 Ford at Auto Club Speedway in March, Kansas Speedway in May and Texas Motor Speedway in November.

“AAA has been a great partner for Team Penske over the years and it’s been an honor to represent them since I joined Team Penske,” said Logano. “Being passionate about cars, I don’t just carry the AAA colors on Sunday afternoon – I’m a proud, card-carrying member of the AAA and I’ve used their award-winning road side assistance on more than one occasion. It’s great that they’ll continue to be such a big part of our program going forward.”

The Würth Group will also join Keselowski for three races at Auto Club Speedway in March, Dover International Speedway in October and Texas Motor Speedway in November. They will also continue as an associate sponsor for the entire 2018 season on the No. 2 Ford.

“Our relationship with the Würth Group has been successful and mutually beneficial on many levels and we look forward to continuing our growth together into the future,” said Penske. “They have been able to leverage their partnership in many ways, including customer and employee programs at the track. Würth is a terrific partner, not only for our race teams but also across all our businesses. We are excited about continuing to win with Würth both on and off the track.”

Würth Group’s relationship with Team Penske began in 2012 when they came on as an associate sponsorship in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Würth Group enhanced their sponsorship to the Cup series in 2013.
