“We consistently perform well when PPG is on the car and I’m excited to be driving it again for a third consecutive season,” said Newgarden. “PPG employees and guests always show up on race day, providing incredible support and it means a lot.”

“PPG and Team Penske are one of the longest-standing partnerships in motorsports,” said Bill Shaw, PPG global business director, strategic initiatives, Automotive Refinish. “To enter our fifth decade of this partnership is incredible. We are excited for the 2024 season and can’t wait to see what Josef accomplishes behind the wheel of the PPG car.”
