I suppose 'somebody' will fashion the garage door pull into a bra this time.

Hopefully they'll be on that sweet, sweet penske damper program. I'm.super excited about this, and hope Pippa scores a ride this year too.

Give me a third Sato win!

i hope it works out, but it will probably fall into the category of women/minorities having to work twice as hard and do great in order to get the same recognition as a mediocre white guy team and not be seen as a novelty

Always liked Team Penske; Rick Mears was my favorite driver while growing up.

Good luck, ladies. Might actually tune into the 500 for this.

That way they have a nice commercial using the image. Bullshiat pays.

Don't tell me they're going to actually make them qualify for the race? That's sexist!

When you hire someone based on something other than "best qualified candidate", it is in fact a novelty team.

It's a 5th Penske car. To give you an idea what that means in IndyCar terms, the person who drove the same ride last year was Helio Castroneves, a 3 time winner of the 500. This isn't having to scrape by and overperform against long odds. This is being gifted top end equipment capable of winning the race. I love Simona and hope this venture works out for her and her team but I'm going to skip the virtue grandstanding and give credit to Roger for providing her the opportunity to enter a truly contending ride in the biggest race there is.
