MAGELLAN JOINS PENSKE RACING AS NASCAR CUP SERIES SPONSOR IN 2010
MOORESVILLE, N.C. and SANTA CLARA, CA. (January 19, 2010) -- Continuing to steer in a positive direction, Penske Racing welcomes Magellan portable car navigation systems as a NASCAR Cup Series sponsor for 2010 and beyond.
Beginning a multi-year partnership this season, Magellan will make its debut as an associate sponsor on all three Penske Racing Cup Series entries. The No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge driven by Kurt Busch, the No. 12 Penske Dodge with Brad Keselowski behind the wheel and the No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge driven by Sam Hornish Jr. will all be sponsored by Magellan.
"We hosted Magellan last year at our annual Penske Racing Sponsor Summit in Indianapolis," said Roger Penske. "We have continued to work with them and we are excited to announce this partnership because our organizations share common core values and we believe there are some great opportunities to build for the future together."
"Magellan is looking forward to becoming a part of the Penske Racing team," said Kevin Chuang, Magellan Chief Executive Officer. "Roger has built a top-echelon organization on and off the track and being a sponsor of Penske Racing will help Magellan as we continue to grow our brand."
