This summer, PPG Industries and Penske Racing are celebrating a successful 25-year relationship. The two companies established a partnership in 1984 through PPG’s participation in motorsports and sponsorship of the PPG Cup from 1979 to 1999 in the CART Series, where Penske Racing teams competed.

The opportunities between the two companies started with PPG providing paint for Penske race cars. Over the years, the relationship has grown and PPG has become Penske Corp.’s largest supplier of refinish coatings for its racing, truck leasing and automotive collision repair subsidiaries.

“We are very proud of the partnership we have with PPG,” said Roger Penske, founder and chairman of Penske Corp. “Working together as we do in so many areas of our business has been beneficial for all of us. PPG’s quality products, services and continuous innovations have helped us throughout our racing activities, as well as in our automotive and truck leasing businesses.”

“The Penske success story has been remarkable,” said John Outcalt, vice president, automotive refinish – Americas, for PPG. “Being a part of it for 25 years means maintaining a continuous commitment to the teamwork that ensures both partners prosper. Our organizations work together well and it shows, and we believe this partnership will only grow stronger in the years to come.”

In celebration of this relationship, PPG businesses and brands will be featured on the No. 77 Dodge Charger driven by Sam Hornish Jr. at the Aug. 2 NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. Painted with Envirobase High Performance waterborne paint by PPG, the car will feature decals for PPG Automotive Refinish, Transitions lenses and Olympic Paints and Stains.

PPG Automotive Refinish recently assisted Penske Racing in its efforts to become more environmentally responsible by switching the organization’s Mooresville, N.C., NASCAR facility to using Envirobase High Performance waterborne paint. Now Penske NASCAR race cars are painted in this environmentally-friendly product. Envirobase High Performance paint has lower volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which results in reduced pollution and a safer working environment for paint technicians.

Cleveland-based PPG Automotive Refinish (ppgrefinish.com), a business of PPG, is a leading worldwide supplier of high-performance coatings for use on passenger vehicles, motorcycles, heavy-duty trucks and many other commercial applications. For more information, call 800-647-6050 or visit the website.

Transitions lenses – manufactured by Transitions Optical, Inc., a joint venture of PPG Industries and Essilor International – are the ideal everyday choice for healthy sight. They are clear indoors and at night. Outdoors, they automatically darken as light conditions change. Transitions lenses provide visual comfort and enhance visual quality by reducing glare and enhancing contrast, helping you to see better today. Transitions lenses block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays – helping to protect the health and wellness of your eyes, so you can see better tomorrow as well.

Olympic paints (olympic.com) and stains by PPG have provided consumers with premium interior and exterior finishes for their homes since 1938. The brand’s heritage of beauty and protection – and now environmentally-friendly finishes – make it the perfect choice for home décor needs. Olympic products, manufactured by PPG’s architectural coatings business, are available at Lowe’s Home Improvement stores nationwide.
