Chip Ganassi’s gone through with a name change for his Sprint Cup operation. And now, so has Roger Penske.

While teams and drivers wait out a light rain that has pushed back this morning’s start of Preseason Thunder testing at Daytona International Speedway, multiple reporters including Jenna Fryer of the Associated Press are now saying that the “Team Penske” name – which has been in effect for The Captain’s IndyCar Series squad – has been bestowed upon his Cup side as well.

Penske’s Cup group had been known more recently as “Penske Racing” and, going farther back in time, “Penske Racing South.” Now, the Penske organization is choosing to go with one overall brand.

And now, when fans call Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano “Team Penske,” they’ll officially be correct.

    ISN’T IT JUST A TERRIBLE SHAME WHAT FOX DID TO THE SPEED CHANNEL ?
    That channel had all types of great auto racing on it.
    NOW, THAT CHANNEL IS MOSTLY WORTHLESS.
    FOX,,,,,YOU ARE MORONS, FOR WHAT YOU DID TO SPEED.
