Team Penske announced that 20-year-old Austin Cindric will compete full time in the 2019 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS), driving the No. 22 Ford Mustang. In the midst of completing his NXS rookie season in 2018, Cindric will get the opportunity to build on that success as he works to bring another driver’s championship to the No. 22 Ford team next season.
“I have had such a unique opportunity this year to learn from so many people, and to learn quite a lot in a short amount of time,” said Cindric. “To have the chance to apply that experience for a full season with Team Penske in 2019 is a huge step in my career. I am so grateful for the confidence Mr. Penske, the 22 team, Ford Performance, Team Penske and all of their partners have put in me. I can’t wait to see what we’ll be able to accomplish together.”
Cindric, who made the Final 4 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs in 2017 and finished third in the series championship standings while driving for Brad Keselowski Racing, made his NASCAR XFINITY Series debut driving the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang at Road America in 2017. Prior to 2017, Austin found victory lane in both the ARCA and NASCAR K&N Series.
PIRTEK is thrilled to continue its partnership with Team Penske and the No. 22 car as a season long associate sponsor, and one primary race this summer. “PIRTEK began its partnership with Penske and BKR in the 2017 Camping World Truck Series with Austin in the driver seat”, said Georganne DeSeve, PIRTEK USA Marketing Manager. “We are thrilled to be back at the track with Austin as he continues to excel through the NASCAR series.”
