CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Team Penske signed Ryan Blaney to a multiyear contract extension ahead of his final push to make NASCAR's playoffs.

Blaney has been part of the Penske organization since he was 19 and ran three races in 2012 in the Xfinity Series. He's been part of the three-car Cup lineup at Penske since 2018 and the team said Wednesday his extension is a "long-term agreement" for him to remain in the No. 12 Ford.

"Team Penske has been family to me for 10 years, so I'm incredibly excited to continue with this family for the future," said Blaney. "Roger Penske is a legend in our sport, and I've always said getting to drive for him is something everyone dreams of doing. I look forward to continuing to win for Team Penske, Roger and all of our partners, as we work towards our goal of winning a Cup Series championship."
