Gold Standard: Penske Praised by Racing Community in London

There were plenty of reminders of Team Penske’s glorious past and present, along with its ties to the United Kingdom, as team owner Roger Penske accepted the prestigious Autosport Gold Medal during the Autosport Awards ceremony Dec. 4 in London. His race car constructor company, which built winning cars in Formula One and the INDYCAR SERIES for Team Penske, was based in Poole, England. In the NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series, Team Penske has won 10 championships, three Daytona 500s and 219 races. Even at age 85, Roger Penske’s thirst for winning hasn’t been slaked. Team Penske recorded one of its best seasons ever in 2022, sweeping the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and NASCAR Cup Series titles in the same season for the first time, with drivers Will Power and Joey Logano, respectively. “Winning both INDYCAR and NASCAR this year was incredible,” Penske said. Team Penske also has enjoyed success outside of the INDYCAR SERIES and NASCAR. Stewart was Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year in 1966, three years before Team Penske first entered a car in the Indianapolis 500.
