Troy, Mich.-based Horizon Global Corp. has joined Team Penske with a new multiyear partnership beginning in 2018.
According to a press release, Horizon Global towing and trailering brands REESE and Draw-Tite will serve as primary sponsors for the No. 2 Ford Fusion driven by Brad Keselowski in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) races this season at Martinsville Speedway in March and Richmond Raceway in September. The No. 2 Ford will carry the REESE branding as an associate sponsor throughout the 2018 MENCS season.
Horizon Global will also serve as a full-season associate sponsor on the No. 22 Dallara/Chevrolet driven by Simon Pagenaud in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
“Horizon Global is a Michigan-based, automotive-focused company, like Penske Corp., and we welcome them to the Team Penske NASCAR and INDYCAR programs beginning this season,” said Roger Penske. “We look forward to helping build the company’s REESE and Draw-Tite brands through motorsports and they’ll have some great opportunities working with two series champions in Brad and Simon.”
The company began its motorsports involvement in 2012 by partnering with Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Keselowski will join the Horizon Global team at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this today (Jan. 18) to help launch the new partnership.
