Roger Penske’s Historic 19th Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS — It didn’t take long for Roger Penske’s parking spot near the Pagoda at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be changed. That’s the number of Indianapolis 500s Penske had won as a car owner. The thrilling victory on May 28 was Penske’s first Indy 500 victory since he took over as the owner of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As the owner of IndyCar and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Penske has to remain neutral. “But Tim Cindric (Team Penske President) had it under control. After Penske purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, however, the Team Penske had been shut out of Victory Lane at the Indianapolis 500. Obviously, it can be anybody’s race there at the end.”. That’s the fourth closest finish in Indianapolis 500 history. For the past several years, Penske’s goal has been to win the Indianapolis 500 20 times as a car owner. “We’re certainly not going to stop here,” Penske said.
