“As our country has grappled with systemic issues related to race, equality, and access to opportunity, we’ve been doing a lot of listening, learning and reflecting,” said Penske Entertainment Corp.

Diversifying employment, leadership, and ownership within the SERIES and with INDYCAR promoters.

Investment in minority communities to encourage greater engagement with INDYCAR and IMS.
