Gold Coast, Queensland, 18 July 2016: DJR Team Penske has announced that Penske Truck Rental will be the naming rights partner for the Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint on 22 – 24 July. The Penske Truck Rental livery will be featured on both the No 17 Scott Pye and No 12 Fabian Coulthard Fords at Ipswich. The Penske Truck Rental livery was first seen in the hands of Scott Pye at the final round of the 2015 V8 Supercars Championship at Homebush.

The partnership highlights the expansion of the Penske Truck Rental brand with offices now in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. The growth of the truck rental business has been swift, with the newest office opening in South Australia in June 2016.

“DJR Team Penske has enjoyed great support from Penske Truck Rental since the team launched in 2015. We now have the opportunity to showcase the brand on both of our cars at our ‘home’ race at Queensland Raceway,” said DJR Team Penske Managing Director, Ryan Story.

“The Penske brands play an important part of the team’s marketing strategy. The interaction we have with Penske Transportation Group International staff and customers, coupled with other key team partners, has been a feature of our on track activity at all Supercars events. We look forward to welcoming the Penske Truck Rental team to Queensland Raceway event next week.”

The President of Penske Transportation Group International, Randall Seymore added, “We had great feedback at Homebush when we were the major partner on Scott Pye’s car. The business is growing across the country and this partnership provides a high-profile platform to showcase Penske Truck Rental to the Supercars fan base and our customers.”
