If you could pick one motorsports moment that sticks out the most throughout the 50 years of racing, what would it be?
There are so many great moments that Team Penske has been part of, that it is difficult to just put your finger on one. Each of our 16 Indianapolis 500 victories has been special and has meant a lot to our organization. There is also the success we have sustained in NASCAR with two Daytona 500 victories and championships in both the Sprint Cup Series and XFINITY Series. With our teams, we are always focused on what lies ahead. So I am also looking forward to our next win and our next opportunity.
You’ve had the privilege to work with some of the most talented and decorated drivers and crew members in motorsports history. How does it feel knowing you helped shape the careers of Hall of Famers?
We have been fortunate to work with some of the best drivers, mechanics and engineers in racing at Team Penske. I am proud that some of the great legends of the sport were able to establish themselves and experience success at Team Penske. Their individual skills and work ethic have certainly been a big part of our team history.
How do you think you’ve impacted the careers of Hélio Castroneves and Joey Logano?
Hélio is now in his 16th season with Team Penske, and Joey came aboard in 2013; and both drivers have been a perfect fit with Shell-Pennzoil as a partner. You look at all the success Joey and (crew chief) Todd Gordon have had together, winning the Daytona 500 and battling for the series championship, and Hélio winning three Indianapolis 500s and coming so close to winning a fourth in the Yellow Submarine. I have certainly enjoyed working with both Hélio and Joey, with our other drivers, but it has been very satisfying to see how well they have represented our partners, including Shell-Pennzoil.
