Team Penske has renewed its partnership with EnerSys for the 2022 season, the multi-discipline racing team announced, which will see EnerSys continue as a sponsor for the team’s NTT IndyCar Series program.
The EnerSys high-performance battery brand, ODYSSEY battery, will be featured as a primary sponsor for several races this season on the No. 3 Team Penske Chevrolet driven by 2021 NTT IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year, Scott McLaughlin. The No. 3 Odyssey Chevrolet will make its 2022 debut at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 3, the team said.
“I am proud to represent the EnerSys and ODYSSEY battery brands in NTT IndyCar Series,” said McLaughlin, who opened the 2022 season with his first IndyCar victory, winning on the streets of St. Petersburg in February. “EnerSys and its ODYSSEY battery products give us an edge over our competition. From their high-performance capabilities to their efficiency and longevity, ODYSSEY batteries give us the peace of mind required to perform at a championship level.”
EnerSys first joined Team Penske in 2014 as an associate partner across the team’s NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) and NTT IndyCar Series programs, and was first featured on the No. 22 Ford Mustang driven by Austin Cindric in the 2020 NXS race at Auto Club Speedway. This season’s Mid-Ohio weekend will mark the first race as a primary partner in the NTT IndyCar Series for EnerSys and ODYSSEY battery, the company said.
“Given the consistently winning performance of Team Penske, ODYSSEY batteries by EnerSys are perfectly suited to be a sponsor,” said Mark Matthews, senior vice president, specialty global at EnerSys. “Our partnership with Team Penske has helped to increase the visibility of the ODYSSEY battery brand as a premium power solution that offers virtually maintenance-free performance and longevity. The renewal of our partnership not only provides Team Penske with dependable, premium batteries, but it continues to demonstrate the quality of the ODYSSEY battery brand as a contributor to the team’s growing success.”
