May 22, 2019

Part eight of the 15-part feature series ‘How Roger Penske Changed The Indy 500,’ which celebrates the most successful entrant at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the 50th anniversary of his first which took place in 1969, welcomes author Jade Gurss.

His fantastic book “Beast” chronicles the unbelievable efforts expended by Roger Penske and Ilmor Engineering, along with the precarious nature of the project which could have failed on multiple occasions, to produce an unbeatable stock block engine for the 1994 Indy 500, which Al Unser Jr used to win for Team Penske.
