Team Penske and Würth will continue a long-standing relationship into the 2022 season, which will see the company serve as a primary sponsor of Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 Ford Mustang in multiple NASCAR Cup Series events.

The company will make its first appearance on the No. 12 in the second points-paying race of the season at Auto Club Speedway, continuing their partnership at Talladega Superspeedway and Watkins Glen International later in the season.

“We are very excited to enter our 11th year as a proud partner of Team Penske and we are thrilled to welcome Ryan into our Würth family,” stated Thomas O’Neill, Executive Vice President/CEO of Würth Line Craft North America. “Ryan’s preparation, positive attitude, and drive to win are qualities that mirror our Würth culture and what we also look for in our employees.  We look forward to success on the track this season in the No. 12 at Fontana, Talladega, and Watkins Glen.”

Team Penske’s relationship with Würth began in 2012, when the company signed on to adorn Brad Keselowski’s No. 2 Ford Mustang for multiple NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events. The company’s 10-year relationship has resulted in three victories as a primary partner, twice with Brad Keselowski, and once with Sam Hornish Jr in the Xfinity Series.

“Team Penske has enjoyed a great relationship with the Wurth USA group for over 10 years,” said Roger Penske. “Their dedication to excellence and high-quality products aligns perfectly with our business and our focus on performance. The partnership with Wurth benefits our teams at the track and at our race shop, as well as our automotive dealerships and truck leasing facilities across the United States and around the world. We look forward to building on our partnership as Wurth teams up with Ryan (Blaney) and the No. 12 Ford team in the NASCAR Cup Series this season.”

2022 marks the seventh full-time season for Ryan Blaney in the NASCAR Cup Series, in which time he’s collected seven victories, 49 top-five, and 96 top-10 finishes in 234 NASCAR Cup Series starts.

“I’m really excited to start the next chapter with Würth in their relationship with Team Penske,” said Blaney. “Obviously they’ve been to Victory Lane a few times and I’m hoping to take them back there at Auto Club Speedway in the second race of the season. I’m really excited about the opportunity to represent them on and off the track with the No. 12 Würth Ford Mustang. It’s especially exciting having the opportunity to be part of a large community of over 82,000 employees and millions of customers around the world.”

Würth provides quality products, unparalleled service, and customized solutions to make their jobs easier, priding itself in having the best cleaners, fasteners, adhesives, as well as industry-leading vending machine inventory management systems. These systems and products are used by Team Penske, at the track and at the shop.
