Brad Keselowski will have sponsorship support from Discount Tire in 10 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races next year.
The Team Penske partner, which has been a sponsor on the No. 22 Xfinity Series Ford since 2010, will continue that relationship in addition to stepping up to the Cup Series on the No. 2. Discount Tire will start the 2018 season on the car in the Daytona 500 and end the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway race. The company will also serve as an associate sponsor for all other races.
“Team Penske has enjoyed tremendous success with Discount Tire over the past eight seasons in the NASCAR XFINITY Series,” said team owner Roger Penske. “We won our first NASCAR championship together with the 2010 XFINITY Series title and the company will always have a special place in our history.
“We are excited for a new challenge with Discount Tire as we look to build on that success with Brad and the No. 2 Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Cup Series.”
Also announced Friday, Miller Lite has renewed its relationship with Penske for next season, which will be its 28th with the organization. Miller Lite has been on the No. 2 car since Rusty Wallace drove it in 1991.
Miller Lite will sponsor Keselowski in 11 races and be an associate sponsor throughout the rest of the season.
“Miller Lite has been a terrific partner with Team Penske for 27 years and we welcome their continued support of the No. 2 Ford team,” said Penske. “There is no question that they have been a tremendous part of our NASCAR success, including winning the 2012 NASCAR Cup Series title together. We look forward to having Miller Lite back with the team as we head into the future.”
The 2012 Cup Series champion, Keselowski signed a multi-year contract extension with Team Penske in July.
