MOORESVILLE, NC (May 15, 2024) – Team Penske and Clarience Technologies today announced a new, two-race partnership that will place the brand of a global leader of visibility and safety technologies on the No. 2 Team Penske Chevrolet driven by Josef Newgarden in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES (NICS) at the upcoming 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 and the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix. The Clarience Technologies logo will be prominently featured on the engine cover of the defending Indianapolis 500 Champion’s INDYCAR entry for two of the biggest races on the calendar for Team Penske.

“It is always a very unique experience to welcome new partners to Team Penske for two of our biggest events of the year,” said Team Penske president Tim Cindric. “Indianapolis speaks for itself as the biggest race in the world and an American icon.

“Clarience Technologies is proud to sponsor Team Penske at the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 as well as the 2024 Detroit Grand Prix,” said Brian Kupchella, Clarience Technologies chief executive officer. “As a Michigan company we are excited to support Team Penske and their Chevrolet-powered Indy car. We are honored to join these two great hometown brands on two of the biggest stages in racing.”
