MOORESVILLE, N.C. – The REV Group has extended its sponsorship agreement with Team Penske and will sponsor Ryan Blaney in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series next season.

REV Group, a manufacturer of specialty vehicle brands serving the commercial, fire and emergency and recreational markets, will be the primary sponsor of Blaney and the No. 12 Ford Fusion in the spring race at Bristol Motor Speedway and the fall race at Talladega Superspeedway. REV will also be featured as an associate sponsor on the No. 12 Ford Fusion for the rest of the season.

In addition, REV will continue its association with the team’s IndyCar program as a full-season associate sponsor on the No. 1 of Josef Newgarden and the No. 3 of Helio Castroneves during the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 during the month of May.

“We are always looking for ways to give our partners more exposure and teaming REV up with Ryan Blaney in the Cup Series was a perfect opportunity,” said team owner Roger Penske.  “We’ve been able to build a great relationship with the entire REV organization over the last couple of years.  Tim Sullivan, Marcus Berto and their entire group do a fantastic job leveraging their partnership to bring in guests and help expand their business-to-business opportunities.”

REV has featured its Fleetwood RV brand with Team Penske since 2016 as primary sponsor of four NASCAR XFINITY Series races on the No. 22 Ford Mustang, including the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.  Joey Logano took REV to their first victory as a Team Penske primary sponsor at Las Vegas Motor Speedway earlier this year. The company has also sponsored three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Castroneves and was the primary sponsor of the No. 3 Team Penske Chevrolet at several IndyCar races over the last two seasons.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to continue our association with Team Penske in 2018,” said REV Group President and CEO, Tim Sullivan. “We are very excited to be associated with two of Team Penske’s young guns next year.  We have supported Ryan Blaney in the XFINITY Series the past two years and we look forward to continue that as he moves to the No. 12 in the Cup Series next season. We are equally excited to have newly-crowned INDYCAR Series Champion Josef Newgarden become a part of the REV family.  And of course, the master Helio Castroneves as he strives for number four at Indy.”
