Penske announces engine plans for '13
Roush Yates Engines will provide Ford FR9 engines to Penske Racing beginning with the 2013 NASCAR season, RYE announced Monday.
Penske had announced earlier this season it will change to racing Fords in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series beginning next season.
"It's truly an honor to provide Penske Racing with Roush Yates Ford engines," said Doug Yates, CEO of Roush Yates. "I have always admired Roger Penske as a team owner and a respected businessman in our sport and beyond. I am looking forward to many wins, championships, and other successes in supporting the Penske organization."
Penske Racing fielded Ford entries from 1991 through 2002.
"Ford has been consistent in its belief that we will be stronger with one engine specification rather than continuing with an independent approach," said Tim Cindric, president of Penske Racing. "Roush Yates has a proven record and we are looking forward to many successes together."
