Penske History 5: The Road to NASCAR

While Penske Racing is currently one of the leading NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series operations with drivers Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch, team owner Roger Penske has a long heritage in NASCAR. Penske won in his only NASCAR race as a driver, in 1963, and he also won NEXTEL Cup Series races with drivers Mark Donohue and Bobby Allison. After leaving stock cars in 1977, Penske Racing returned for two races in 1980, with Rusty Wallace finishing second in his first NASCAR race. That set the foundation for Penske South and Wallace joining NASCAR in 1991.

Penske History 4: An Indianapolis Legend
While Mark Donohue returned to run only one more Indianapolis 500 after his victory in the 1972 classic, car owner Roger Penske was hooked. He went on to build the greatest legacy in the history of the Memorial Day weekend race. Following in Donohue's footsteps were Tom Sneva, Rick Mears, Al and Bobby Unser and Danny Sullivan. Penske Racing enjoyed the greatest showing by a team in the 1988 classic, when the team put three of its drivers on the front row, and then scored a 1-2-3 sweep in the race after leading 192 of the 200 laps.

Largest Crash in NASCAR History
Thanks to Rustyfan for this great capture. In 1960 Daytona Superspeedway hosted this sportsman race. 68 cars entered into the race, back then there were a maximum of 68 cars in a superspeedway race. Coming out of turn four 37 cars get into a massive wreck where at least six cars get on their roofs. Amazingly, evryone walked away from this. By the way, I am really getting tired of people having arguments that lead to name calling and slander. If I see a comment that put another member down or uses any derogatory language, I will delete it and any replies to it immediately. Also, if you do not like racing or think it is a sport, that's fine, but at least give some logical thought into a comment that you post. I will once again delete any comment along the line of "nascar sucks" or "nascar is for dumb rednecks LOL!!1!1". All I ask is for some civilized conversation, and not trash talking.
