Penske’s Cindric To Come Full Circle with Graduation Address

Thirty-one years ago, a graduating senior at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology listened to the commencement speaker, although Tim Cindric concedes he remembers nothing about what the man said in the address. Cindric, 53, has gone on to become one of the most successful team leaders in auto racing history. Joining Roger Penske’s organization in 1999, Cindric has overall management responsibility for the team’s entire racing organization, which includes teams competing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and NASCAR’s Cup and Xfinity Series. Cindric’s career with Team Penske consists of more than 300 race victories and 19 season championships. In addition, Cindric oversees Penske Technology Group, Penske Restoration, the Penske Heritage Center and the Penske Racing Museum. Prior to joining Team Penske, Cindric served as team manager for Team Rahal from 1994-99 and worked as interim general manager and design engineer for Truesports’ INDYCAR team after graduating from Rose-Hulman. “Right now (I’m) anxious, as it’s a new experience,” Cindric said.
