EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, recently announced its multi-year extension as official sponsor of Team Penske through 2018.
As official partner of Team Penske’s NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) programs, EnerSys will equip Team Penske with its ODYSSEY® batteries. In addition, the ODYSSEY® battery logo will be on the b-post of the No. 22 NXS Ford Mustang beginning with the POWERSHARES QQQ 300 at Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida, on Saturday, February 20.
EnerSys joined forces with Team Penske in 2014, displaying its ODYSSEY® battery logo on the Team’s No. 22 Ford Mustang and outfitting Penske Racing’s state-of-the-art Mooresville, North Carolina headquarters with its ODYSSEY® batteries, chargers and accessories.
“We are excited to continue the momentum of our partnership with Team Penske,” said David M. Shaffer, president and chief operating officer at EnerSys, “and proud to power one of the most successful teams in professional sports today.”
Team Penske is celebrating its 50th anniversary in motorsports in 2016 and looking forward to another banner year. The team is coming off a successful 2015 season with seven wins in the Sprint Cup Series, eight wins in the XFINITY Series and its third consecutive NXS Owners’ Championship.
“We are very pleased to continue building our relationship with EnerSys,” said Roger S. Penske, founder and chairman of Penske Corporation. “Our success depends on a team effort, and we know we can count on EnerSys and its ODYSSEY® batteries to help us perform at our best.”
