Team Penske and Snap-on Tools announced a multi-year partnership extension, which will see the tool brand continue being featured on Team Penske vehicles as a primary and associate sponsor in NASCAR and IndyCar.

According to a press release from Team Penske, Snap-on will be featured as the primary sponsor of Scott McLaughlin’s livery for the NTT IndyCar Series GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course this weekend.

The red and black gradient Snap-on livery was on McLaughlin’s No. 2 Dallara Chevrolet earlier this year at Long Beach, a race which resulted in a 14th-place finish for the native of New Zealand.

“I’m always pumped to represent brands that I can relate to, and I can definitely relate to the Snap-on team with their great tools and their important Makers and Fixers campaign,” said McLaughlin. “I love tinkering with cars and anything automotive and have my entire life, so I understand their special focus on those in the trade professions. Plus, the car looks bloody good, with the subtle tools within the livery design, it’s one of my favorite cars to drive all year long. I’m excited to see them continue their journey with Team Penske for sure.”

McLaughlin currently sits second in the NTT IndyCar Series point standings after four races.

Snap-on will also serve as the primary sponsor on Daytona 500 Champion Austin Cindric’s No. 2 NASCAR Cup Series Ford Mustang at Kansas Speedway during the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

According to Team Penske, the design for both cars highlight the Makers and Fixers initiative, which celebrates men and women that keep the world moving.

The partnership between Penske and Snap-on Tools has spanned more than 40 years and Roger Penske is elated to continue the relationship beyond 2022.

“We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with Snap-on and we look forward to building on our partnership beyond our motorsports programs for the future,” said Penske in a team release. “Snap-on has been a trusted partner and a cornerstone of our racing success for well over 40 years. From Indianapolis 500 victories to NASCAR Championships, Snap-on has helped us win both on and off the track and we are excited to carry that tradition forward.”

Additionally, Snap-on will also serve as a key partner for the Porsche Penske Motorsport program, which competes in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, beginning in 2023.
