I must say I didn't see this coming at all. Incredible news out of Indianapolis this morning.

That is awesome!

When I think of Indy car racing, Roger Penske is one of the first names, people, things, faces that pops into my head. Good for him.

What does this mean for giving the Penske Team an inside track to cheating in the future? Or rules setting to suit themselves and disadvantage other teams? They own all now.

I’ve yet to figure out who at NASCAR thought that was the right thing to do. 🤨🤨

He was a major player in CART forming back in the 70s. Someone asked him this in the press conference and he said an independent party would run the series. Plus Tony George owned a team while being IRL president.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what changes he makes at IMS. He said in press conference he would be open to F1 returning as well as a 24hr endurance race. I would love to see V8 Supercars run there, maybe the same weekend as the IndyCar GP.

They'll field only EVs and the race will last in 30-45 minutes. smile

He will be better than Tony George- self made unlike the Georges. He has been successful in most everything he has tried. Indy will be better off

I can't see any downside to this transaction. This might even get me interested in open wheel again. Nothing but respect for Mr. Penske.

Roger Penske has a level of integrity and respect from his competitors that is rare to achieve and with which you are clearly not familiar. He is probably the only one I would trust in this kind of situation.

Besides, when is the last time he was caught and sanctioned for cheating? I've been an Indycar fan my entire life and I can't remember a single time, especially one that appeared to be intentional or directed by RP.

My hope is with Penske tie to Ford is for
Ford with Penske backing is to bring
Ford back to Indy car racing
The 2.7L Ecoboost makes a perfect platform for a Ford entire level engine into Indy Racing !!

A big week for Roger Penske. First he receives the Medal Of Freedom from President Trump. Then a few days later he buys the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, along with the Indy Racing League. Couldn't happen to a nicer, more deserving, well respected guy! This country could use a lot more like him.
