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.
