MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Team Penske announced Tuesday that it has reached an extension agreement with DXC Technology for the upcoming Verizon IndyCar Series season.
In its first season as a motorsports sponsor in 2017, DXC Technology built on an established presence with Team Penske’s Verizon IndyCar Series program and 2016 series champion Simon Pagenaud, driver of the No. 22 Dallara/Chevrolet.
Next year, DXC Technology will return and serve as the primary sponsor on Pagenaud’s car for six races, beginning with the Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 15.
DXC Technology will also continue as an associate sponsor on the remaining races for the No. 22 team.
“Team Penske is excited to grow the partnership with DXC Technology for 2018,” said team owner Roger Penske. “This is a technology-dependent sport and we were able to integrate DXC into our IndyCar program this season and we will be ready to take our performance, and hopefully our results, to the next level with them in 2018.”
DXC Technology was the primary sponsor aboard Pagenaud’s car for six races in the company’s first year with the team in 2017, including a victory in the season finale at Sonoma Raceway.
“I enjoyed working with DXC Technology and representing their brand this past season,” said Pagenaud. “DXC Technology shares a similar philosophy with us at Team Penske, which is to strive for excellence. We are very proud to work together relentlessly toward further limits in our respective industries. We were excited to get a win with them in Sonoma and everyone at Team Penske wants to build on that as we welcome them back for 2018.”
DXC Technology is an end-to-end IT services company. Formed by the 2017 merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the company has more than 155,000 employees across 70 countries, serving some 6,000 clients.
“Our partnership with Team Penske provides a great opportunity for DXC Technology,” said DXC Technology chairman, president and CEO Mike Lawrie. “Performance and reputation make Team Penske the type of organization with which we want to align. Like us, they strive for excellence in everything they do and work diligently to provide value for both sides of the relationship.”
