on

 MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Team Penske announced on Friday that they have extended their partnership with Alliance Truck Parts for the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup series season.

Next year will mark the company’s second consecutive season on the No. 2 Ford. Alliance Truck Parts joined Team Penske in 2010 on their NASCAR Nationwide series program. They currently serve as the nation’s leader in the commercial transportation industry.

“Team Penske is excited to build on our relationship with Alliance Truck Parts,” said Roger Penske. “We have worked closely with ATP as one of our key partners in NASCAR to build value for both of our organizations. As we continue to enhance our business relationship, we look forward to experiencing more success with Alliance Truck Parts on the track as well.”

The company will sponsor the No. 2 Ford for eight races throughout the 2015 calendar. This season, Alliance Truck Parts signed up for only two events. They will also come on-board as an associate sponsor for the remainder of the year.

“This extension is a big deal to all of us at Team Penske,” said Keselowski. “Alliance Truck Parts is a great brand – I actually own a few Freightliner trucks and we use Alliance Truck Parts to maintain them. We appreciate all they do for the Team Penske organization and I’m looking forward to continuing our success with ATP in the future.”

Vice president, Friedrich Baumann, said that there is special excitement when the company is on the side of the No. 2 Ford. Also added that Sundays certainly have a new meaning for the customers and presence in NASCAR. They also look forward to continue the success with the Team Penske organization.

Brad Keselowski goes into the Michigan International Speedway this weekend making his 184th Sprint Cup series start. Of those starts, Keselowski has driven to one championship, 13 wins, 42 top-five, 69 top-10s and six poles. He hopes to capture the win this weekend because of the 2.0-mile oval being his home track. Keselowski currently sits second on the Chase for the Sprint Cup grid.
