I can’t help but think that our series and @IMS are in great hands. If you know anything about Mr. Penske, it’s that he holds his work to the highest of standards. I have no doubts that we will see @indycar and the Indy 500 rise to new heights. pic.twitter.com/3VJ0oX4uDX

Great (and slightly shocking) news that Roger Penske & Penske Corp bought @IMS & @IndyCar ,RP’s passion for Indycar & the 500 plus his business acumen make this a huge win. As all the drivers say at the 500 prize giving, thanks to the Hulman George family for their stewardship. pic.twitter.com/6GN76nk9Sx
