Yeah and he's too busy/too invested into IMS now. Penske has gone seriously down in my estimations though, here's why:

Since 2017, there has been a hugely popular event held at Indy for the kart racing community called 'Battle at the Brickyard'. It was run on the north section of the road course and as part of the weekend all drivers got to do a parade lap of the oval. Well once the Captain bought to track he has refused to allow the event to take place, citing the reason that karting doesn't play a part in motor racing.

The irony is, all 4 of his current Indycar drivers have karting to thank for starting their careers.

Yeah, too bad Penske seems to have gone off on a Fuhrer bent.

At least I think he is still an enthusiast.

Of course I don’t know how much that is worth.

Extremely wealthy people have much different “thought” processes than I do, I’ve given up trying to figure them out.
