The company said yesterday (3 December) that the "multi-year" agreement will see Venom continue as primary sponsor of the #26 car driven by Marco Andretti.

Financial details behind the tie-up were not disclosed.

"We are excited to be back on board with Marco Andretti and Andretti Autosport," said Russ Schleiden, brand manager of Venom Energy. "We look forward to bringing the Venom Energy drink and Marco Andretti partnership to life for our fans on the track as well as at retail."

Dr Pepper Snapple Group launched Venom in the US last year.
