Team Penske and Discount Tire have extended their relationship together in a multi-year agreement to continue sponsoring Brad Keselowski in the Cup Series, the team announced Wednesday.

With the agreement, Discount Tire will be on the No. 2 Ford for five additional races starting next year, including the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400 and the season finale in Phoenix, for a total of 15 events. It has been the primary sponsor on Keselowski’s car for five of 22 races so far his season.

It will continue as an associate sponsor of Ryan Blaney and Joey Logano in the Cup Series, Austin Cindric in the Xfinity Series and of Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud in IndyCar.

Discount Tire first partnered with Team Penske in 2010, the year Keselowski won the Xfinity Series championship.

“Team Penske’s partnership with Discount Tire continues to grow and is a bond that has reaped many benefits for both companies,” team owner Roger Penske said in a press release. “When we won our first NASCAR Championship back in 2010, Discount Tire was a big part of our program and it has been exciting to build on our success together as the company transitioned to becoming a primary sponsor with Brad and the No. 2 Ford team in the Cup Series. Motorsports has helped build the Discount Tire brand, connecting with both employees and consumers, and we look forward to more success together as the company expands its role with our team in 2020 and beyond.”
