CV Products Congratulates Penske Engines on its First-ever Sprint Cup Title

CV Products —  December 6, 2012 | Category: Penske Engines | Comment

You can bet the entire crew here at CV Products was on pins and needles as we watched the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, on Sunday, Nov. 19. Going into the race — which was the final one of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series — Brad Keselowski driving the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge was determined to secure Roger Penske his first NASCAR Sprint Cup title.

Keselowski did just that by finishing 15th, handing Penske Racing it’s first-ever NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship in its 23rd full-time season, and Dodge its fifth title and the first since 1975.

The reason we are so excited is because CV Products has been providing its quality in-house manufactured parts to the renowned Penske Engines team for over ten years now. In particular, the good folks at Penske Engines have relied on our Xceldyne valvetrain line and XTS drive systems to help the Miller Lite Dodge complete a zero-engine-failure campaign.

In short, Penske trusted us to manufacture and supply top-level racing components and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their trust and their business. (Write-up continued below this amazing video of Brad Keselowski and his Penske Racing teammates winning Roger Penske his first NASCAR Sprint Cup title.):

And it’s only fitting that the Penske Engines team served Dodge so very well in its final year with Penske Racing by winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup title. It was perfect timing. Penske Racing made its first NASCAR start in 1972 with Mark Donohue. It ran one full-time season in 1976 with Bobby Allison before going full-time in 1991 with Rusty Wallace. Brad Keselowski has enjoyed great success since joining the team in 2010.

While this is their first NASCAR Cup title, Penske Racing has been no stranger to victory lane, capturing 76 wins and 97 poles while competing in NASCAR’s premier series prior to the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup title.

So we congratulate Penske Racing – and in particular, Penske Engines — for a job well done! We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Penske Engines and wish all of their employees the best as they look ahead to 2013, including:
