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 3: The Road Leads to Indy
After enjoying success in various sports car series, Roger Penske's attention turned to Indy Cars when driver Mark Donohue was invited to drive in a race by a leading team. While Penske made Donohue decline, he purchased an Indy Car. Donohue went on to win Rookie of the Year honors at Indianapolis in 1969 and won the 1972 Indianapolis 500 — the first of 14 triumphs at the Brickyard for Penske Racing.

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.
