Team Penske made its NASCAR debut in 1972 after several years on the IndyCar scene. Founder Roger Penske, a road racer in his youth, saw his first Sprint Cup Series win in 1973, when Mark Donohue took the checkered flag at Riverside.

Other than a season with Bobby Allison in 1976, Rusty Wallace became the first Penske driver to compete full-time in the Sprint Cup Series in 1991 -- more than 10 years after he first stepped in a Cup car for the team. Jeremy Mayfield sat behind the team's second full-time entry for 28 races, added in 2001. Mike Wallace drove in the other eight races that season. Brad Keselowski brought Penske his first Sprint Cup Championship in 2012. Keselowski and his teammate, Joey Logano, will be looking to bring "The Captain" his second Sprint Cup title in four years in 2015.

Team Penske is headquarted in Mooresville, North Carolina, where its NASCAR teams fill 240,781 square feet. Visit the team's web site here.
