SKF to co-sponsor race car for NASCAR Nationwide Series

SKF, a global supplier of bearings, seals, and lubrication systems, will be a featured co-primary sponsor on the No. 22 Ford Mustang driven by Brad Keselowski, as he tries for two in a row for Penske Racing in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series at Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway tommorow. SKF and Penske Racing are in the second season of a multi-year racing partnership that saw Keselowski win the Sprint Cup Championship in the partnership’s first year together last season.

In addition to being a co-primary sponsor at Bristol Motor Speedway, SKF will also be a co-primary sponsor for the same car at Richmond International Raceway on April 26. The company is scheduled to be a primary sponsor of Penske Racing’s No. 12 Ford Fusion for future races this year as well. As a technical partner to the Penske Racing organization, SKF brings its knowledge of reducing friction to both the NASCAR and IndyCar racing arenas. Partnering since November 2011, SKF and Penske Racing have over 25 different application and development projects, drawing from all five of SKF’s “technology competence areas: bearings, seals, lubrication, mechatronics, and services.”
