What can Team Penske do for an encore following what was possibly the best season in the 53-year history of the organization in 2018? It remains to be seen if Team Penske can raise the bar even higher in 2019, but with winning team and drivers forging championship contenders in all five series where the team competes, it is destined to be another season to remember.
Across each level of competition, the individual Team Penske teams remain mostly intact for the 2019 season as the organization will race to win in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the NASCAR XFINITY Series, the NTT IndyCar Series, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
In the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS), Joey Logano will look to defend his championship in 2019, but he will face fierce competition from drivers throughout the series – including his own teammates Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney.
Logano had a dream 2018 season as he produced the second MENCS championship in the history of Team Penske. Crew chief Todd Gordon returns to lead the No. 22 Ford team this season as he’ll work with Logano to adapt to the new Mustang while building on the success of last season. Shell-Pennzoil will continue as the primary sponsor of the No. 22 Mustang, along with AAA/Automobile Club of Southern California and Autotrader as Logano fights to defend his crown in his seventh season with Team Penske.
Team Penske is well positioned to add to its winning tradition and legacy in 2019 as the organization is prepared to race for wins and fight for championships across all levels of competition this season.
