Shell/Penziol To Sponsor Castroneves At Indy

Penske Racing announced today the return of Shell/Penzoil to Indy Car racing.  At a Las Vegas press conference, 3-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves, unveiled his #3 Shell V-Power®-Pennzoil Ultra™ branded entry for the 2011 Indianapolis 500.

“I am very excited to be working with Shell and Pennzoil this season and I’m proud to have the opportunity to drive the beautiful Shell V-Power®-Pennzoil Ultra™ car in the 2011 Indianapolis 500 representing the No. 1 premium gasoline and Pennzoil’s most advanced motor oil in the U.S.,” said Helio Castroneves “Shell and Pennzoil have such a great history in IndyCar racing and they have certainly had some special moments with Penske Racing at the Indy 500.  I hope we can create a little bit more history together this May at Indianapolis!”


Although the Month of May is the only time Shell-Penzoil will have primary sponsorship on the #3 at this point, according to a team rep, 'there may be some other opportunities' down the road.

Yesterday Penske Racing announced the addition of Meijer as an associate sponsor for both Ryan Briscoe and Helio Castroneves, and as a major associate for Will Power and the #12 entry.
