Penske Gives Back for the Holidays


’Tis the season for spreading good tidings and cheer! Penske Automotive Group dealerships got in the spirit of giving this holiday season through numerous charity efforts across the country. With toy drives, coat drives, canned food drives, and more, we were proud to see the Penske family come together to make a difference within their respective communities.

Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Porsche of Fairfield collected new, unwrapped toys for their local Toys for Tots Foundations so those less fortunate could experience the joy of the holiday season. Each year, Toys for Tots aims to unite all members of local communities during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign, and our dealerships are always there to lend them a helping hand. Mercedes-Benz of Warwick also held a toy drive for the holidays with all donations going to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State, a charity that aims to provide positive mentors to Rhode Island youth. Meanwhile, BMW of Turnersville payed it forward by holding a food drive all month long, and Chevrolet of Turnersville remembered those who have served by partnering with Wreaths Across America. Each December, Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,100 additional locations to ensure our veterans and their sacrifice are never forgotten.

Other dealerships across the country showed some love for local charities as well, with Lexus of Chandler, Tempe Honda and Porsche North Scottsdale all setting up drop off locations for Arizona’s Toys for Tots Foundation. In California, Mercedes-Benz of San Diego got in the spirit of giving with AJ, from The AJ Show, by helping him reach his goal of 100,000 donated toys for Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

Thank you to all who donated! We’re thrilled to see your charitable efforts bringing so much joy to local communities. From our family to yours, Penske Automotive Group wishes everyone a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!

Roger Penske at the Indy 500


The most renowned name in American motorsports, Roger Penske, will be leading the track at the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 later this month as this year’s celebrity pace car driver. The big race marks the intersection of two career milestones for Penske as he celebrates his 50th anniversary as the most acclaimed race team owner in history. Penske describes the upcoming landmark race in an interview with USA Today saying,

“It’s going to take a long time before they get to the 200th so this is pretty special, and to combine that with our 50th year in racing and the success we’ve had … we’ll be going for our 17th which, to me, is outstanding,” he said. “To know the team we have going into this year’s race and the success we’ve had, I feel real good about our chances, but this is a race anybody can win.”

In a half century of race team ownership, Penske made a seamless transition from driver to owner, while simultaneously building his automotive empire. He has accumulated 16 Indianapolis 500 victories, establishing himself as person with the most wins in the race’s history, as well as acquiring 2 Daytona 500 victories and 27 national championships.

Penske attended his very first Indy 500 with his father in 1951 and began his racing career ten years later. He claimed three consecutive national events in his rookie season, securing a Sports Club of America championship and earning the title of Sports Illustrated’s Sport Car Driver of the Year.  In the next three years, he went on to win an impressive eight additional races. Shortly after, Penske climbed out of the cockpit and into the business arena, starting his legendary racing team, Team Penske, just a year later. Over the next 50 years, under his stewardship, Team Penske evolved into the benchmark of racing excellence seen today.

As Penske steps back into the cockpit once again in the 100th installment of the Indy 500, he will be leading the track to the green flag behind the wheel of a unique version of the recently revealed 2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition in Albacore White and packing 455-horsepower. This will be the 27th time a Chevy car paces the track and the ninth time a Camaro is featured as an Indy 500 pace car.
