Team Penske has inked a multi-year partnership agreement with Hunt Brothers Pizza, which will see the industry-leading convenience store pizza brand serve as a sponsor of the historic organization responsible for winning the last two championships in the NASCAR Cup Series.
As part of the newfound agreement, the green and red colors of the Hunt Brothers Pizza brand will be plastered on board the No. 22 Ford Mustang in select NASCAR Cup Series events, the entry driven by two-time champion Joey Logano.
The brand will also serve as an associate partner for Ryan Blaney, the defending champion of the NASCAR Cup Series, as he looks to capture his second consecutive championship, and the third straight for Team Penske, in the No. 12 Ford Mustang.
“With their long history of commitment towards winning in NASCAR, we welcome Hunt Brothers Pizza to our Team,” said Team Penske President Tim Cindric. “As they continue to utilize motorsports to promote their brand, we are really excited to have them on board as we work with them to carry that tradition forward.”
Founded in 1991, Hunt Brother Pizza has grown from a family-owned and operated company to more than 9,000 locations across 32 states, all while staying committed to providing high-quality ingredients and exceptional flavor. The company represents a legacy in the convenience store industry with its team of pizza professionals supporting store partners nationwide to provide the best pizza in towns across the United States.
The new partnership with Team Penske will further add to the heritage of Hunt Brothers Pizza in NASCAR, as the brand enters its 17th season serving as a committed and dedicated sponsor in the NASCAR Cup Series. The company started things off in 2008, partnering with Haas CNC Racing and Ken Schrader at Talladega, and has since served as a primary partner 46 times, scoring a best finish of fourth place.
“We are thrilled to team up with Joey Logano and Team Penske, a winning team and driver who both share our company’s values and commitment to being the best in our respective industries,” said Scott Hunt, CEO of Hunt Brothers Pizza. “NASCAR continues to be a popular sport among convenience store customers, and we look forward to continuing to engage fans and provide additional marketing value for our convenience store partners in the years to come.”
Hunt Brothers Pizza will partner with Logano as he begins his 16th season in the NASCAR Cup Series, racing for his third championship in 2024. After winning the 2022 championship, Logano captured the 32nd win of his career in 2023 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, extending his streak to 12 consecutive seasons with a win at NASCAR's top-level.
“We’re excited and honored to bring Hunt Brothers Pizza on board next season,” said Logano. “Their commitment to excellence both on the track and in the marketplace – in addition to their longstanding support of motorsports – makes Hunt Brothers Pizza a perfect fit at Team Penske. I look forward to racing the No. 22 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang in 2024 and we hope to see those popular red and green colors in Victory Lane next season.”
The specific events in which Logano will drive the No. 22 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang in 2024 will be announced at a later date.
