McLaren's boss owns a piece of Indy history

A “motorsport industrial complex” could be a fair description of Penske... Such is the success and legacy of “The Captain” – Roger Penske – and his outfit. The name Roger Penske commands reverence in the pits at any given race weekend, from Ginetta Juniors or the Clio Cup to the heady heights of the World Endurance Championship and F1. In fact, it’s via McLaren Racing’s CEO Zak Brown that two of Team Penske (the racing team inside the massive Penske empire)’s winning cars, the PC-18 and PC-20, came to be at the 2021 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard for our celebration of Roger’s towering six-decade, multi-discipline presence in motorsport.
