The car that gave Roger Penske his first NASCAR win

Team Penske brought no fewer than 11 cars to the 2021 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard. Cutting quite a different dash to the low-slung single-seaters and sportscars was this Pontiac Catalina stock car. Generously proportioned and finished in gleaming black, it looks every bit as intimidating as you’d expect of a period NASCAR. It’s a faithful recreation of the car in which Roger Penske claimed his first saloon car win, at the Riverside 250 in 1963.
