Back in August, Team Penske Racing announced that home improvement retailer Menards would come on board to sponsor Ryan Blaney's No. 12 Ford car in 2018 for 14 races.
Now, with the 2017 season in the rearview mirror, Blaney took to social media on Tuesday to post a photo of the fresh (very) yellow paint scheme for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2018 with Menards branding prominently featured.
The 23-year-old Blaney finished a career-best ninth in the season standings for 2017. He is also well known for his work as a host on NASCAR.com’s “Glass Case of Emotion” podcast.
“Menards has a winning tradition in motorsports and Team Penske looks forward to adding to that legacy. We have enjoyed a productive relationship with Menards through our INDYCAR program, and they were a key part of our championship effort last season. We are excited about the opportunity to grow with them in NASCAR beginning next season,” said Roger Penske as the sponsorship was first announced back in late August.
Blaney will begin racing full-time with Team Penske after two previous seasons with Wood Brothers Racing's No. 21 car.
