Team Penske announced Thursday a multi-year extension with Autotrader, the online car shopping website and app.

Autotrader will sponsor the cars of Penske drivers Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski for two races each during the upcoming Sprint Cup season.

It will grace Keselowski’s No. 2 Ford Fusion on Feb. 28 at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Aug. 20 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Aug. 20.

The company will sponsor Logano’s No. 22 Ford Fusion on April 17 at Bristol and July 9 in a co-branded ride with Shell-Pennzoil at Kentucky Speedway.

Autotrader also will be an associate sponsor on both cars throughout the course of the season.

“We are fortunate to expand our relationship with Autotrader beginning in 2016,” team owner Roger Penske said in a media release. “The entire Autotrader team has embraced motorsports and the marketing opportunities that racing brings over the last couple of years and we are excited that they view Team Penske as a long-term partner.”

The two companies extend a partnership that began in 2014.
