The official unveiling of the No. 22 Fitzgerald Ford Mustang livery will be made in mid-March at the company’s corporate headquarters in central Tennessee during a special event for employees and local media.
“Fitzgerald Glider Kits is a family run business,” said founder Tommy Fitzgerald Sr. “The family and I have always been huge fans of NASCAR, and it’s been a lifelong dream of mine to see our family name on the side of one of these amazing machines. We feel that our partnership with a team as prestigious as Team Penske has increased our odds of seeing our family name in Victory Lane.”
“We are excited to welcome Fitzgerald to Team Penske as a new partner in 2016,” said Roger Penske. “Fitzgerald is a family run business that has made a name for itself and has become established as an industry leader.”
The 2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series season will begin at Daytona International Speedway this Saturday, Feb. 20.
Fitzgerald Glider Kits was founded in 1989, by Tommy Fitzgerald Sr. and his brother, Ricky Fitzgerald. Today, the company is also co-owned with Tommy’s sons, Robert and Tommy Jr, along with friend Nick Bresaw. Fitzgerald’s specializes in installing pre-emission engines into new Class 8 trucks to create a more fuel-efficient rig that requires less maintenance and yields less downtime.
