Team Penske is one of the most successful professional motorsports organizations in the world. Established in 1965 by Roger Penske, Team Penske competes in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity series. In the 55 years since the founding of the team, Team Penske has more than 580 victories, over 650 pole positions and 40 championships across open-wheel, stock car and sports car racing competition, making Team Penske one of the winningest teams in motorsports history.
Josef Newgarden has won 18 races and two INDYCAR SERIES championships (2017 and 2019) in four years since joining Team Penske.
In addition, the 30-year-old American driver has recorded more wins since 2017 than any driver in the INDYCAR SERIES (11) and has produced top-five finishes in the championship standings for four seasons in a row.
Newgarden captured the series title in 2017, his first year with Team Penske, behind four wins and nine podium finishes. Between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Newgarden brought his career number of poles to eight, his career podiums to 29 and wins to 14.
In 2020, the INDYCAR SERIES was significantly affected by COVID-19, and despite repeated changes to the race schedule and fewer races, Newgarden raced the No. 1 car (reserved for the reigning series champion) with Hitachi Team Penske, securing three pole positions, four wins, and a second place finish in the overall championship standings.
