Mazak Partners with Austin Cindric at Texas

 

Mazak Corporation was featured as the primary sponsor on the No. 12 Ford Mustang driven by Austin Cindric for the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race at Texas Motor Speedway this past Saturday, April 7. The Texas race sponsorship builds on the integrated partnership between Mazak and Team Penske that began more than 25 years ago.

“Team Penske is excited to extend our partnership with Mazak,” says Roger Penske. “As one of the original Penske Racing sponsors, Mazak is a trusted partner that has helped grow our business. As the Team Penske organization has grown, so have Mazak’s applications, technical capabilities and involvement with our teams. From simple brackets to complex custom engine parts, the multitasking capability and advanced technology provided by Mazak’s production equipment has played a vital role in the success of Team Penske’s NASCAR, IndyCar and IMSA Sports Car teams. We look forward to helping grow the Mazak brand through the new partnership with Austin Cindric and the No. 12 Ford Mustang team.”

For more than two decades, Team Penske has benefitted from its in-house equipment manufacturing process that includes equipment supplied by Mazak. Inside Team Penske’s facility located on 105 acres in Mooresville, North Carolina, the organization’s racing programs manufacture everything from chassis to key suspension parts.

“All of us at Mazak are proud to be a part of the most storied racing tradition in history,” says Mazak Chairman Brian Papke. “Mazak and Team Penske share an unwavering commitment to innovation and continuous improvement that drives everything we do.”

At only 19 years old, Mr. Cindric is one of NASCAR’s promising young drivers, and he is already considered a Rookie of the Year candidate in the NXS. He will race for both Team Penske and Roush-Fenway Racing in 2018 NXS competition, following a breakout season in 2017 with Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

“Mazak has been such a loyal partner to Team Penske and they play a big role for us back in the shop,” says Mr. Cindric. “I am really grateful and excited to represent them at a track where I enjoyed some success last season in the Truck Series, and I hope to follow up their support with more of the same.”
